Bottletree Sunrise: Skywatch Friday!

The jets around Joshua Tree/29 Palms were really active last weekend, and helped to paint up the sky a little!  This is a sunrise shot (photo credit:  GB).  As usual, I was still asleep!!

Here's my wife's "bottle tree" in the foreground and a great sunrise in the background.  Again, photo credit goes to GB.  This seems to be a trend?!!  Give me credit for knowing a good photo when I see one!!

For more great skies from around the world, please

  2. The desert always produces the greatest skies. We once had a nice bottle tree with white christmas lights stuffed up in each bottle. Can't have those things where we live now. That's okay though.

  6. Gorgeous skies and the bottle tree is great. Please show us how...
    Wonder if it has a metal frame.

  7. Yah, I have a bottle tree too. It is really fun collecting the bottles. Below is where I got mine. It is a big metal frame, and you just slip your bottles over the metal poles. I suggest the smaller-sized bottles. If you Google bottle-tree bottles, you can even buy THOSE online, lol, but you can find small wine and colored oil bottles at Dollar store, and etc. Enjoy! Oh PS, I love the morning shots. Thank you Marines. :-)

  8. Nice pics...glad GB is an early riser.

    The bottle tree, holding up well in the brutal elements, love the colors.

    Nice others are interesting in having one of their own - mine was covered with empty wine bottles, oops.

  11. Your photos are really great. I wonder if the lines in the sky are "natural" or have been "drawn" by planes. Thank you very much for visiting my blog.
