Mine are up but I suppose I'm early..earlier than some of my posts- but I'm behind most folks time wise.
This is a beautiful Park, it reminds me of some forested areas over here. Beautiful the way the trees become a frame for the pretty blue sky- Happy skywatching Denise-

Kilauea Poetry said...

I just saw your video clip too..I thought that was a nice contribution!

Ebie said...

Must be a treat to be able to visit this Park. Your sky shots are great and love the first one.
RYC: It is now 40% contained; however, there was another one in Palos Verdes 5pm our time caused by a car on fire, but was contained right away. Lets hope we get a cooler weather.

Hey Denise:

You clocked into Sky Watch early this week and your photos are very crisp, clear, refreshing!

Cloudia said...

This is all, I believe, within 300 miles of my birthplace. As such I thank you for this sentimental journey to the skies sights and smells that birthed my writerly heart!

Aloha my friend, and yes: bikes are domesticated beasts that don't belong in a wildlife sanctuary ;-}

A wonderful sky you've got here! And a wonderful nature as well :) I enjoyed the clip :) Have a nice week-end!

Jack and Joann said...

Denise, I have been to Huntley Meadows many many times. Franconia School used send the first graders on a spring field trip to Huntley Meadows. It is pretty anytime but I like it most in October when the leaves have turned and the birds are migrating.

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful skies Denise and as always great photos.
