What a day, you decide!

What a picture day today! First a red tail hawk decided to entertain me, he must have loved having his picture taken because he circled overhead quite a few times! At home, I was looking out the window and another color explosion. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. (These were taken with my Pentax K200D, and I do love this camera. I only hope to get more lenses as time goes by.)

Oh Andrea - these are just beautiful! You should do a calendar or something - your photos are stunning. What a treat to see the hawk.  We have a number of them in Cambridge and I'm always excited to spot one.

Andrea - That Hawk was showing off for you!  He's a real "ham."  Your pictures of sunsets are dreamy.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) about 9 years ago

Gary, yes I am sure he did, he was posing for me. Thanks!

Mara, thank you so much! I think hawks are just so awesome! And sunsets and sunrises are too.

Donna, really I cropped the picture which zoomed up on him. The original is nothing like that. Thank you!

Liz, you do? That is too cool. I love to watch these guys. Thank you! I don't know about a calendar, but I appreciate you support! Hey, you can be my realtor agent!

Robert, you are so very welcome. And thank you!

George, looks can be deceiving, LOL. Thank you so much!

Chandra, why thank you! Sometimes I think the same thing to, I think it is what we call scrub trees. With the wind up here they have some very odd shapes.

Sally, thank you so much! Actually, it was a puffy kind of cloud day, but the sky was brilliant blue for sure.

Pat, thanks so much. It is always a pleasure to show my work here, you all are too generous!

Posted by Randy Hooker, Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Queen Creek (Dreamcatcher Realty / Greater Phoenix Area) about 9 years ago

Marchel, Why thank you. Actually I was sitting at a clients house a few miles from my house when I looked up and saw the hawk. And I have said before, I  get the most amazing sunrises and sunsets from my house. The sunsets are taken from my front yard.

Hannah, thanks. Mother Nature is always posing for me up here.

Sharon, you have a wonderful weekend also! Thank you for your generous complement!

Hi Tony & Darcy, you are very welcome, and thank you!

Randy, the last photo was taken at the same time, just turned in the other direction, over the hay field. Thank you so much!

You and I have much in common, I see. I absolutely love skyscapes. Great pictures. I'll need to do some more from my end in Waterbury. Had the chance last week, but alas, I didn't have my camera with me.

Posted by William James Walton Sr., Greater Waterbury Real Estate (WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Briotti Group) about 9 years ago

William, never travel without the camera, whenever I do is exactly when I see the most perfect shot! Thanks for the comment, and I look forward to seeing more shots of Waterbury from you.
