Scenes along the Mohawk River -Sky Watch Friday *6-5-09*

~ A Sunny-Blue-Sky Afternoon along the Mohawk River ~
Last Saturday my family had a lovely get-together at a town park.
It was a gorgeous day; we really enjoyed ourselves.

Are these trees "holding hands?"
The breeze made the waters dance and shimmer.
A little cove where the geese and ducks came.~ A kite flying kind of day ~
I finally got the spot out of my kite picture using Paint. Just copied a little sky and pasted it over the spot.
I couldn't get the spot out on the far left... too much sky variation...

It originally looked like the kite made a shadow on the sky!

I love this timeof the year when we could picnic outside with family and friends and still have time to shoot some photos for the blog.

It's always fun to fly kites when there's a clear blue sky. Love the shots here. Will make lazy in the afternoon and just dream on. :)

These are all wonderful pictures, I particularly like the first one and the way the bench seems perfectly placed under the arch formed by the trees :o)

What a beautiful lake to visit and sit awhile. I am not sure about your spot issue; I have had some spots on my close-up lens and I cannot seem to clean them. I have cleaned both ends of my lens and still the spots are there! With my other lens, no problems, so I know it is this lens and not my camera.

Ah well, back to the subject at hand -- beautiful shots for SkyWatch Friday, and thank you for visiting my blog too!

These are all beautiful shots of the lovely park. The trees did look like they were holding hands and I liked ending with the kite flying one.

Hi Maria! Thanks so much for coming by! I love your photos! The one of your "cracked pot" illuminated from within was my favorite! I may have made a boo boo on Artie's blog address. I think I've fixed it. This is it in any case. You'll be glad you visited him...a very creative person!! http://niagaranovice.blogspot.com/
