Out With The Old, In With The New




Sunset, May 31, 2008 and sunrise, June 1, 2008, as seen from my office window in Champions Gate. Seems like I spend a great deal of time at the office! I'll have to do something about cleaning the glass - we need clearer shots!

I just found out about Project Blue from the most awesome Carletta In Blue Jeans, and I think the second shot qualifies because of the blue striped hot air balloon against the big blue sky, so this is my first entry. Check out Anna's blog to get in on the action - she's the hostess!

If you have an extra two minutes, check out this group of squirrels I encountered on my walk this morning.

Egads, it's as if the sky parted just for the sun to set that evening! WOW... what a shot!! Yeh, that's what photography is all about. Good job.
The balloon shot is outstanding!!
I will check out Anna's blog... thanks for the tip.

OMG! That first image is as stunning as they come! Wish I'd been there.
The balloon against the blue sky is absolutely beautiful - perfect for the project.
And...I'm glad you joined - as long as I'm a good influence. :)


BTW - THE good line from Jerry McQuire - you can stop now! LOL

Your sky shots are fantastic! I wish a balloon would fly over here but I'd probably not have my camera with me if it did.

Oh I just LOVE hot air balloons! I've ALWAYS wanted to go up in one. Great picture!

Raven said...

Wow... what an exquisite sunrise! If you're going to spend too much time in your office, it's nice to have such cool views. The balloon shot is wonderful too. Excellent for project blue.

The blue backdrop for the hot air ballon is wonderful. It's a great capture.

The sunset picture is amazing. I love it. but when I saw the hot air balloon picture I thought "oh no, the balloon blew up" (even though I read your post, the mind works overtime).So anyway--two great shots. MB

Great sunrise and sunset! Just gross on the armadillo though. Can't say I've ever seen an armadillo in that light before! Thanks. I think. I remember visiting during one of Anna's other projects.
