SkyWatch Friday:

I enjoy the different types of water towers I encounter in my state (NC).
The beach water towers invariably have an aquatic theme.
There were a number of military helicopters flying over the ocean when I was there.
I suppose that's is because there are military bases near by.
I like the way jets paint the sky with contrails.
I've already posted one seagull and kite shot on another post but here's one with multiple seagulls flying with the kite.
Sometimes I like the distant shots of seagulls that look like a symbol for birds, as opposed to a realistic photograph.

Love the water towers, there's a water tower in Illinois that is a basketball, the small won state many many years ago. I'll have to dig and look for the photo.

Lovely post! I remember trying to draw those bird symbols. The water towers, jet trails, and seagull-kite shots are all against wonderfully bright blue skies. My favourite seagull is the one just over the kite. They are in parallel motion :)

Looks almost like the gulls were investigating the kite to see what kind of strange bird was invading their skies! (And their skies are beautiful).

Genie said...

Another one of your wonderful posts. These skies are so bright and pretty. Love the water tower shots. Those would be fun to photograph. genie

We have a similar helicopter that comes up the lake near our cabin to practice water rescues. You can hear them working over a mile away. - Margy

the last picture of the seagulls looks like eyes in the sky, strangely, it doesn't seem odd to me.

hope you have a great day.
