Two Winter Skies (SWF)

Skywatch Friday 

In our search for more birds for my Big January Count Gus and I visited Salisbury Beach and Plum Island last Saturday before the next storm and the football playoffs! All these storms have made birding terribly slow and difficult. Big January update to come but for now, enjoy our winter skies!

Note: both photos were shot by Gusto with the Nikon D90 and the 18-200 lens.

  5. Gus certainly has an eye for the grandiose and universal. I would love to have the first shot enlarged and covering a whole wall, then I could sit amongst the beauty under that vast sky and not budge at all.

    All the best to both of you! . . . Arija

  9. Wow, those are spectacular pictures. Is the second picture snow covered sand dunes? That is something I had never really thought about before....sand and snow. I guess growing up in the south and living in CA never gave me that experience.

  15. Awesome photos, Kathie. Having spent a lot of time on sandy Gulf Coast beaches in my younger years, the snow covered beach scene really plays with my mind. Hope y'all are ready for the next storm headed your way.
