SkyWatch Friday: Flying in the clouds


Photobucket
If you look closely you might notice a tiny speck in the clouds above. Below is a shot after I zoomed in on the speck.

That's a beautiful lake, great shot! I love your pictures of the greenway below, if I lived there I'd be on those trails all the time.

Shelley Lake in September. Does it get better? Okay, yeah, Carolina Beach in September. Alright, any beach anytime of year. But you get my point.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and I'm not sure but for those asking, I think the bird was a gull. It was pretty far away and there aren't usually many gulls at this lake this time of year (mostly geese, ducks, great blue herons and a few others) but there are gulls later in autumn and I think that's what it was (an early gull).

I like the feathery clouds. Do you know what the bird is? Great shot.

SandyCarlson said...

Beautiful. North Carolina photos are hard for me to take these days, though. They remind me of the paradise I am missing!
