Skywatch # 86 The Abridged Version


For those keeping count, 25.


So, I said the blog would be back this week. Trouble is we've been having bi polar weather and my camera does not go out in the rain. Far too sensitive. Trawling the archives, what do I find but yet another shot of the most famous bridge in blogland, Ramsey Swing Bridge. So the game is back on to get 100 shots of this bridge at varied angles, blah, blah each one different from the last, and drive me slowly crazy in the process. A lush blue sky as a backdrop unlike today, which has been dull, grey and April showers all the way. Also, the seagull deposited a load just after this serene image was captured, which I woud have taken had I not been trying to dodge the fallout!

Welcome back! It's still a beautiful bridge, but for the seagulls :-)

Welcome back. The bridge looks so clean. No bird poop. Lovely photo.

About time you started this up again.

Yeah ewok it was me. Someone reckoned it couldn't be done. Of course it can. Haha

Carver said...

I love the detail of the bridge against the royal blue sky. Fantastic!

Eric, Omaha said...

What a comeback. Glad you dodged the bird s**t.

Halcyon said...

Glad to see you're back! At least the sky in this photo is a beautiful blue. :)

Awesome shot! Lucky us that you have an impressive archive. I hope the weather gets back on the meds. Thanks for being among us.

Explorerminded said...

I love the detail of this picture too...nice! thanks for dropping by.

Gaelyn said...

About time you showed back up here with a swing bridge shot. Maybe the bird of paradise, or gull in this case, never poop on your parade.

Glad you are back babooshka and glad you landed on our doorstep! I'm thrilled that your witticisms will be back for us to enjoy!

A most beautiful blue - the kind you could drown in!

ladyfi said...

Love the patterns of the bridge against that amazingly blue sky!

Lew said...

Certainly not bipolar that day! It's nice to see the old bridge again.

magiceye said...

lovely blue!

Merisi said...

With an archive like yours, who needs to go out and shoot new pictures? Oh well, tongue in cheek, but I love your picture! I hope the weather turns to serene and sunny quickly in your parts of the world!

It was so nice to see you on my blog, thank you very much for the comment. Studying and accompanying projects are constantly nipping on my heels, leaving me little time to visit Blogland friends. I am looking forward to Midsummer.

What a great idea to shoot a bridge from 100 different angles. We have a very long and typical bicycle brigde overhere, perhaps I could try it with that sometime ...
Anyway I like this part of your brigde against teh clear blue sky. And I hope you'll have these skies back soon.

Greyscale Territory said...

Fantastic to see you here again! Always loved all your angles on this bridge too! You and your bridge are most welcome!

Zarko said...

Really amazing photos! What camera do you use?

EG Wow said...

Ha! I LOVE that you called your weather bi-polar! Very descriptive and, unfortunately, sounds a lot like where I live.

Virginia said...

Hell, you're back one day and have twice/thrice the comments I have on a good day. There's no justice! :)
Da Queen is back and rightfully the bridge as well. The Sin Bin awaits you, Your Highess.

Arty!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Lovely shade of blue in that sky--been awhile since we've seen that around here, too.

Mo said...

We do miss your wit. Love to see you more often.
