Like Giant Bird Feathers Rising From the Earth~

~ My 100 th SkyWatch Friday Entry ~
  
Thank you for all of the wonderful meme managers that make this come to life for so many! 

Happy SkyWatching


There was something just very appealing to me about this viewing of trees.  They looked like giant bird feathers rising from the earth, with the early morning sunlight coming up from behind.

Every week, I try to visit as many meme participants as possible, but last week failed to get to SkyWatch Friday entries and I do apologize!  It took me a few days to get around to doing much of anything in  fact, due to having some physical limitations.  I am awaiting word from 2 different physicians and am certain that I will have to have an MRI, but am playing at the waiting game.  Thus said, I have not been out and about as much, and so my selections have been limited as far as my sharing.  I have quite a few in my saved folder, which I shall try to get to later.  Until then, have a blessed week~

  6. oh Mary, I'm sending you a big, long hug across the miles. I'll be thinking of you dear. your photos are spectacular - no surprises there. I truly enjoyed your year's wrap up of too. You're an extraordinary nature photographer.
    I thought of you today when I was moving files onto my external hard drive. I got so weary of doing it after a couple of hours that I just dumped whole files in the recycle bin without even opening them. I figured if I didn't even look at the photos I wouldn't miss them. Take good care now. Do keep in touch Mary.

  8. I appreciate the beauty of the barren winter trees. However your image and view as feathers brings a new perspective. Thanks for that and will think positive that your medical worries will subside.

  9. Oh Mary those tree/sky views are just breathtaking. I could hang those on my wall and be happy to look at them every day.

    I am sorry you aren't feeling at your topmost -- and hope the MRI finds whatever's wrong and that it gets fixed asap!
