A different view of things.... (Sky Watch Friday)

"A New way of looking at life"
Moon and gum trees at twilight
Sky Watch Friday
Tilted image of Two Gum Trees and the Moon at TwilightYou've all seen these trees before. You've even seen these trees with the moon. But have you seen them at this angle before?

Sometimes it's good to step back and take a different view of things.

  2. Hi suzi-k,

    Thanks for dropping around. I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks for giving your views on the lightning shots too - lightning's one of my favourite photo opportunities, when a storm comes around!

    Cheers,

  4. The angle was puzzling at first but I suspect it is intentional. I like your photograph otherwise.

  6. Great! Did you climb a tree to get that angle ;)

  7. I like the topsy-turvy angle, the silhouetted tree and the colouring of the sky... there is a lot more to this view than first appears... a stunner of a Sky Watch and I thank you.

  10. Hi abraham lincoln,

    Yes, the angle was intentional. I thought it might be nice to wake people up a bit! Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday....

  11. Hi quinttarantino,

    Now that you mention it, it's hard to remember exactly how I took this shot! I might have been lying down, otherwise maybe I was resting it on a railing of the house. Thanks for your comment, it certainly made me think!

    Cheers,

    David

  12. Hi anonymous,

    No, I don't think I climbed a tree for this one. Something great about this camera I have is that you can flip the screen out, so a photo like this can be taken fairly easily from the ground.

    Thanks for visiting, hope you have a great weekend.

    Cheers,

    David

  14. Hi rambling round,

    Yes, that's a very good observation. I could imagine looking this way at a scene as a child. What a pity we lose these skills as we grow older!

    Cheers,

  27. Hi rose,

    That's great, I wonder what is different about this photo.... I think the twilight aspect makes this photo special as well, don't you?

  29. Very interesting angle resulting in an interesting photo. I have to confess that I turned my head to the side to see it "right side up" but it's beautiful as it is. Lovely sky!

  34. Hi anna,

    Do you get this sort of colour in the sky where you live? I don't travel much, so it's nice to hear what other people see around the world.

  43. Hi pat,

    I tend to do that too, maybe it's an automatic reaction with photos like this. Thanks for your comment, hope you have a great day.

  44. I too have used a nearby tree about 100 times. It´s always there when something interesting happens around it.

    It´s good that all those trees are different from each other. It gives many framing possibilities. Good dusk light.

  45. As always, your photo is beautiful! The angle makes it even more interesting. Nice work.

  46. I love your blog. Loved Mr. Bean. Mine has four or five sky photos (before I found Sky Watch) in recent posts, Australian as well.

  48. Hi chrome3d,

    It is actually amazing to see how many unique photos can come from the same scene. I think the sunlight helps a lot!
