Wild Skies...

That's Wild with a "W"!
Can you see the "W"??
How about now?
And now??
Switching letters, how about "A" for arch??

I like this one. I can see both a "W" and a Valentine's heart!

See the X?

I don't see any letters in the photos below... just some pretty desert skies!


The ruggedly-beautiful Coxcomb Mountains (above). Changing to a telephoto lens gives a closer view of the Coxcombs (below).

What's that in the sky? A coyote, perhaps?? I'm just thankful to be healthy enough to hike and explore in the desert and enjoy the beautiful, unique scenery the desert offers. 

Linking with Skywatch Friday and with Michelle over at Thankful Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Yes, I could see all the letters...good eye. The B&W are really striking. I'd guess they are either infra-red shots or you had a polarizing filter on your lens.

  4. Funny--- in the last one I first saw a skeleton lying on its back. THEN I saw the coyote. No flying saucers though. Super shots.

  14. As always great sky shots and making letters in the sky must be an american invention since I saw it first in a Donald Duck when I was about 10 in 1955.

  31. I think the sky is so interesting. It is like a blank canvas on which God paints a different picture every minute of the day.

  32. Stunning sky and rock formations! You must have some major airline lanes converging overhead. The rocks look to have been deliberately sculpted.
