SWF>>>Beginning to end

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday and Green Day

Here are some scenes from the beginning to the end of my day. I wrote on a previous post my sunrises look the same each clear morning. So here are more of my sunrise shots taken in the same spot.

You can click on the photos for a larger image.






LOL, I just can not have a post without birds so I am also including a few of my yardbirds , the cardinal above and a bluejay below

And a trio of Mourning Doves posing sweetly for me and my camera.


In the evening I saw the clouds breaking apart and the sun setting turned the clouds a pretty pink.


I love the pastel colors, the pink and different shades of blue. It was a beautiful evening for skywatching.



I have a setting on my camera where I can choose take a photo using vivid colors. The shot above is with using the vivid color setting. The sky did not really look this darker pink, but I think it is cool how the color changed in the clouds.


As you can see above the pink is a much lighter color but still very pretty. I hope you enjoyed my skies.
To see more of the lovely green visit Green Day and for more beautiful skies from around the world, please visit Skywatch Friday.  Thanks to the hosts: Sylvia and Sandy.Thank you also for stopping by to see my post. Have a safe and HAPPY weekend.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
