Free As a Bird

AA Pic of the Week One day last summer my attention was drawn to the bright sky. The sun was playing peek-a-boo behind the fluffy clouds, creating almost razor-sharp borders between dark and bright areas of blue. It was not until I got home and transferred the pictures to my PC that I spotted the two birds of prey soaring high above, riding the thermals majestically in circles. Simply beautiful!

Awsome pict! The same happened to me once, and I though: "Hey! How did you get in there?" Life is full of little surprises :)

You were obviously horizontal when noticing such a lovely sky.. one too many beers?

1st L - ...uh, don't remember...;-)

I thought the top one was a small plane. But you're right.

Because you're so fantabulous I've given you an award! Come to my blog to find out more.

Gutsy Writer - Not easy to tell the difference with the sun in your eyes!
Eric - But if they "find something" the surprise might not be very pleasant for the "object"!
T1 - Thank you, can't wait!

It seems like you always have a camera with you. Do you?

swenglishexpat said...

Diane - Nearly always. I am one of those belt-and-braces man, and on that belt often sits my camera in its holster. I have in the past come across situations when I wished I had my camera, and that is sooo annoying!

Fantastic photo. How did I get the honor of being on your blog list?
Have you connections in westcliffe?

swenglishexpat said...

Janey - No connections, but I came across your blog last year, I think, before you had a blogger break due to a family matter. I have not been back until now. It is interesting to read about other parts of the world; I don't often see bear paw prints in the snow around these woods!
