Sky Watch #48

(My New York Minutes 3)

If there was one thing that I was consciously aiming for this NY trip was snapping as much skywatch entries as possible. I honestly did not think we would have time to go to Manhattan due to our tight schedule and short stay, so the minute the taxi when into motion, so did my shutter. Here's one of those drive by shots where I watched the blue skies through the still bare limbs. I saw the birds after I uploaded the images on my PC.

  7. You have done well to capture this from a moving vehicle. The sky and cloud through the branches is soft and muted.
    Lovely.

  24. Such a pretty shot! I love the trees and sky but the row of houses is just beautiful.

    The birds are a nice touch-- I love getting a 'surprise' when I load the photos into the computer, and I see something there that I didn't see through the camera. So I smiled to read your comment there.

  27. That's a great drive by shot! What a lot of trees there are there. It must be so nice and shady in the summertime when they're all full of leaves. Looks like you made the most of your New York Minutes!

  48. But the trees are bear? When did you take this one? :)

  49. Nice shot. I noticed the birds almost right away but if I'd taken this I don't think I would have noticed them until I got home too.
