Sky Watch #27

See, it was like this. I was looking up at this perfectly blue sky and this magnolia tree jumped in the way. Everytime I tried to look towards more blue sky a big 'ol flower jumped in my shot. So there I am looking at the blue sky through the branches of this tree....




Okay, the truth is there was nothing but blue sky, not even a wisp of a cloud so I broke it up with a flower. :-)

We ll caught my friend.beautiful contrast in colour.

Tarolino said...

Now that is simply stunning. The colour combination is striking and Magnolias (I think they are) are among my favourite tree flowers. Let there be spring and sun and flowers on the trees.

Absolutely beautiful, Saxy!

Lovely flowers to frame the sky

lovely contrast and artfully done

Arija said...

You have to be really careful with Magnolias they are habitual jumpers! Just point the camera at the sky, the house or the landscape and as you press that little button...Wham!!! another Magnolia shot. At least you managed to avoid some of it so we got a little glimpse of the blue!

Even without a wisp of clouds, it's still beautiful.
