Beautiful sky - even before I scrolled down to see the pumpkins. They added a very cool dimension. Very well captured - you must have crouched down low for this one, huh? Happy SWF!

This shot warmed my heart... not eerie but warm, grandma... cooking pies, turkey cooking. Beautiful. Wonderful capture.

I usually do blame Canada... lol. Sorry you don't like the cold. I think you probably should consider your geographical misplacement... lol

Mojo said...

The cloud formation in the left of the frame even looks like a jack-o-lantern in a very oblique view. If you look at it right.

And squint.

Nicely done!

Jim said...

Reminds me of the trees and sky I would see early in the morning when my Dad would take me hunting. It would be so cold the leaves would crack when you walked on them.

see you there! said...

Happy Halloween, don't eat too much candy :-)

This is LOVELY! Very nice for Halloween.

P.S. About the swans - these wild ones usually start swimming away when I approach, but I've gotten pretty good at sneaking up to them and hiding behind some bushes. LOL :)

Bradley Myers said...

A beautiful sky watch photo, and the subject is more than fitting for the time of year.

Jojowatches said...

Well, not everyone can afford those really expensive engagement rings no matter how much you love your girl. It is not that you don’t love her enough. It is just that you cannot afford them. However you will be able to find cheap engagement rings joe rodeo here.

A unique and lovely shot!
