Through My Window
Skywatch: Spider In The Sky




The first two images were taken last Friday as I was perusing Sky Watch entries. They were taken out my sunroom window. It is a view I enjoy every day through good weather and bad. Sitting at my computer a couple of days later I could hear the unmistakable sound of aircraft and grabbed my camera. I was just in time to step out on my deck and snap a quick picture of the 'spider in the sky' as it flew over.

excellent sky watch.

Jim said...

You have a very pretty view from you window. I guess I do also but it seems like it's better for me to step outside the door.
Sometime I will post what little pictures we took last year in West Virginia. It was the last state for me to visit to make all 50.
I wasn't trying the other times when I could have swung over. It is a very pretty state, it surpised me. If I had seen a coal mine I would not have been surprised.

You certainly have a beautiful view to enjoy! And that is a wonderfully descriptive name for a helicopter! Happy Skywatch Friday. :)

Craver Vii said...

If you tilt your head sideways and squint just a bit, that cloud in the bottom picture looks a little like a helicopter, doesn't it?

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Great capture of the chopper... I always try to keep my camera by my side as well... the top two photos are lovely as well... you take fine photos!
Have a great weekend!

Another wonderful series of photos, Carletta. The helicopter does look like a spider. Is that a mountain I see peeking through in the first photo? Beautiful view from your computer and deck!
