SWF>>>Walking the fireroad

It is time for my favorites memes Skywatch Friday and  NF Winged.  Over the last couple of days I took some shots of the skies above my yard and a few birds from my local walk on the fireroad for NF Winged.



Our skies lately have ranged from blue to all gray.   One early morning started out looking like this.


 And by the time I walked up the fireroad








I looked up at these Eastern bluebirds in the tree, there was nothing but gray skies for a background. I thought Goldie Girl and I were going to be rained on so I decided to turn around and walk home rather than go further up to the clear cut area.






And here when I looked up again at the same tree I saw some American Robins. At first the rusty colored breast  kind of fooled me. But, the Robins are much bigger birds than the bluebirds.



I did see some pretty colors along the fireroad.




  I hope you enjoyed my walk and skies, I hope the sky is pretty where you are.

  5. Love the first picture much; great small detail of the trees, which gives the sky its depth.

  21. No matter what the skies, great pictures come from you.

    This time of the year the skies are changing from bright blue, to billowy clouds, to gray, to so wet no photos can be taken. At least in Michigan it has been that way for the past week!

  22. Dearest Eileen,
    I loved all of the pictures, beautiful clouds, the Autumn path, trees and of course birds♬♬♬
    I found the little bird in my humble garden today, but it flew away before I got the camera(^^;)
    Lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  26. These are such tranquil photos. I love the puffer clouds, the beguiling country lane (which sounds so much more Thoreau than "fire road," lol) and its lovely fall colors, and the sweet birds against the soft grey sky. Very Zen! :-)
