SKYWATCH FRIDAY (with leaves!)

Keeping it simple this week. Nothing more perfect than the clear blue sky.Especially when viewed through the leaves of a tree.

I like the idea of the sky through the leaves. The second set of leaves look like the tree is in need of some iron.

Nice photography.

You got a nice perspective of the sky! I so love that one with the maple leaves. For sure, when it turns orange, it'll be very different, yet beautiful just like your shots!

I have two Sky Watch pictures this week, and you can view them in these blogs:

Ilike the 2 tone effect of the sky against the eaves.

They are my favourite colours blue & green together. Love very much the 2nd & 4th ones, showing the veins in the leaves & the different shades of green.

abraham lincoln - thanks. Trees in public parks don't get much TLC unfortunately, hence the lack of iron! Loved your chipmunk picture.

shutterhappyjen - thanks for dropping by. Hopefully we will get some leaf colour in the fall, usually the wind blows them off before they have chance to change colour!

photo cache - thanks for dropping by. the colour combination was what caught my eye too!

prettylifeonline - thanks for dropping by. I cast my vote for you.
