Sky Watch #41

LVGC0083, originally uploaded by M'roy.

As you can see, blue skies kept us company during our very short visit to Grand Canyon. This crow did not budge at all while we took photos/posed under this tree. Did not even bother to look when we were shooting him. He's probably used to all the tourists' attention.

Happy Skywatching everyone. Want more sky? Click here.

Look what some dude/dudette made? I loved it.

Sorry fellow bloggers if I have been absent from visiting your blogs in the past few days. I went to a wedding 3000 miles away and just got back. After doing the laundry, here I am blogging right away. I have to end now, my realtor rang to say she's on the way, need sign more papers.

On that beautiful February day this year, there was snow on the ground and blue skies as we spend time with Mother Earth's grandest of all canyon.

There is plenty more sky watch photos, here.

Scenic Sunday #7

IMG_0253, originally uploaded by M'roy.

Most of the time I think of scenic as something that's huge, a sweeping landscape. But there are times when scenic can also describe a delightful corner or area inside an attraction. This is what I am posting today for SCENIC SUNDAY, a delightful little area inside the butterfly habitat attraction in Sentosa Island in Singapore.

I found the red bridge really stands out with all these green.

SCENIC SUNDAY comes weekly. Go visit the site to see scenic views or to join us.

Photo Hunt #36: Purple

There is nothing but flowers that I can think of when I saw this theme come up weeks ago, and I exactly knew what I was going to post. It's the clematis from mom's garden that I took from last summer.

Sky Watch #39

On Black Saturday, we were invited to a Sikh prayer offering in a Sikh temple in Silicon Valley. The weather was glorious and spring like in the low 60s, the sun was out, and everything is blooming and the hills along highway 680 are green.
I took these photos on the drive back home. I was reminded that my recent Skywatch entry was similar, green hills and blue skies. Please pardon the repetition. You see out here in my world, the rolling green hills don't stay long. Before we know it, we have wonderful rolling brown hills. So I'm enjoying all the green before they're gone.

Oh no, I think I see the beginning of the browning of the hills. Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Spring and a restful weekend.
Want more sky? SKY WATCH comes weekly with more sky photos from participants all over the globe.

Meeee! Meeee! Meee!

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebration. I'm back. I still have no clearcut plan on how to post in the coming days so I'll have some random shots of new and old from archives for a few days.

Here's one of my favorite sights around the bay. One of the goats of Goats-R-Us that come to clean the extra vegitation around the neighborhood.

Scenic Sunday #6 (Valley of Fire-Conclusion)

Isn't this just a delightful spot for a picnic?

It's Scenic Sunday time once again. And for today's entry, I would like to again post Valley of Fire photo, thereby putting this series to an end. If you would like to see the rest of photos, the album is here.

Head on over to Scenic Sunday to see picturesque images or to join the meme.

BTW, I would be taking a week-long break in observance of the Holy Week. So, fellow bloggers, have a happy Easter.

Are you seeing stripes? I found this interesting staircase design while outlet shopping in Las Vegas in February this year.

Sky Watch #38

IMG_0022, originally uploaded by M'roy.

California (in this part of the state at least) welcomed Spring with the most pleasant weather. Today our highs in the bay range from 60 to 67 with sun and blue skies, which makes me long for a day off today.

I went out walking to Pt. Pinole Regional Shoreline last Saturday, March 28th, and this shot is from that walk.

Well folks it's SKYWATCH time of the week again. Go and visit the site for more glorious photos.
