Fog & Dizzying Sun

On Sunday we started with fog in the morning. You can see how dry the winter has been by the very brown grass.
By the afternoon the clouds had mostly cleared, so I took these skywards shots when I took Socks for a walk in Fox Run Park.
Visit the awesome Skywatch Friday meme for more skywards photos.

I'm putting together a new meme which should be live this weekend, on Saturday or Sunday depending on where in the world you live. It's for all photos scanned, they can be old prints or slides, or even new scanned shots if you still shoot on film. It can be found at Sunday Scans - I'll try it for a few weeks, and if it gets some interest and doesn't take too much time to clear out abusive links, I'll keep it going indefinitely, every weekend.

  20. Each picture has it's own uniqueness! I love the top one because of the lone green tree against the fog and brown grass.

    The next two are just stunning as I stretch my neck to see to the very top... Wow!

  21. Fear not, the green shall and is returning. Here on the North Fork we've just witnessed the return of "our" pair of ospreys, our certain sign of spring much like robins elsewhere. Lovely photographs... I especially liked the grain in the wood.
