Blue Sky & Trees

Again I've learned more about one of my photos thanks to my knowledgeable commenters - this time Lesley and snowwhite both recognized Siegfried and Roy, and one of their lions, as the subjects in Monday's statue - thanks for the information. I should have known that myself, especially considering the statue's location!

Here's a photo I took on a recent late-autumn hike for both the Skywatch Friday meme, as well as for Tina's PicStory, whose theme this week is trees. It shows scrub oak in the foreground (more a bush than a tree), which has long-since shed its leaves, as well as some of our common pine trees, and our typical mostly-blue skies.
I was almost lying on the ground to get this angle, I'm sure my little dog Socks wondered what I was doing!

  2. Love the sky -- it may be cold where you are but you can pretty much bet on sunshine~ tell Socks that all the work you went to for that shot was definitely worth it! Beautiful trees.
