Skywatching

From the Walker Castle Ruins atop Mountain Falcon near Morrison, CO:

Up through one of the remaining windows:

To the east, overlooking Denver:

To the south, where some thunderheads are brewing:


To the west, over the Rockies:

And a couple views from over wildflowers, because I can't resist them:



For more skywatching photos from all over the world, run over to Crazy Working Mom's wonderful Friday feature!

* Sorry for the ones that are repeats, regular readers... I'm calling it "re-theming." Can you tell I loved this place?

What a lovely series of sky views! Love the perspectives you've selected for the ruins and the flower shots especially.
Hugs and blessings,

So many lovely sky views! Peeking through the ruins was genius, and wildflowers are always a good foreground.

Beautiful pictures. I love those building thunder clouds!

Don't worry, my memory isn't good enough to remember is you're "re-purposing" your pictures...and then, at best, I'll just think it's a "deja vu" moment for me!

One of the neatest things about wild flowers is that they are 'freebies'...you don't have top buy or fertilize or water them...they are just sweet gifts from Heaven.

blessings and hugs,

It's kind of funny to go to a blog with the same name as mine! Brilliant minds think alike, and we're both disorganized Virgos, too - how ironic is that?!?

I love your sky shots, too, those are my kind of skies and clouds - beautiful!

By the way, I had read the same thing about the moon being really big as an optical illusion, too, but either way it's sure pretty when it's a big Harvest Moon! I've also heard that the reason that it's so hard to get a good shot of is because of the amount of light it's reflecting. Apparently photographing the moon is quite the challenge.

I feel like I am there just looking at the pictures. So many pines, I wonder how strong the smell when hiking?

I love the perspective looking up the columns and then out the window

I remain amazed at the vastness of the USA, and I am thrilled at the different views we see as we look out our windows...

The truth is, we all live in God's country, but yours LOOKS like what one would think God's country should look.
