This is a beauty of a shot. I love it. Love the steeple shape and color against the beautiful blue sky.

Congrats on your new blog.

Awesome shot!!

Linda said...

It's hard to say anything but beautiful anytime you see that cross in the blue sky. A reminder of what Jesus did for our sins.
And a great place to keep our focus.

Judy said...

Tricia said...

I have a shot almost the same as that! I debating on posting it for Sky Watch Friday!

I guess I get to see the original here..I failed to read that last line in your other blog. I like this one better...its a gorgeous spire.

A beautiful old-fashioned steeple against a scenic blue sky: nice shot! I like the way the angles of the steeple break up the natural sky.

Hi Carletta, this is a pretty steeple. It looks good against the blue sky.
My sky is bluer (TEXAS) but I'm not doint Skywatch. I couldn't keep up with it.
We have a smaller crowd at 'Looking at the Sky.' Come peek in at the LITTLE P&P.
