day 362: blue skies

Sorry if you're on ornament overload, but we had blue skies today (finally!) and I wanted to capture the soft hazy color.

Photobucket


I had about ten minutes to grab these ornaments off Collin's little tree, race outside, hang them up, snap a couple pictures, run back inside, do a little editing in Photoshop and then race back to pick up my kids. Whew!

Happy Tuesday! ♥

No overload here, that's such a cute idea. I should do something with the ornaments before they get put away, but i begged DH to take down the tree while I am at work tonight...we'll see if it happens.

yeah,I finish up with the holidays pretty quickly. LOL

By the way, I really appreciated your comments about my daughter in the email. She IS a sweetheart and the greatest 13 year old I could ever imagine.

SO I am totally loving seeing my beautiful Nebraska sky.. and so curious as to where you stashed your kids at for a day...cause I am so looking forward to mine going back to school...( Thought I would never say that, but I just did!). What is the temp up there?? I am enjoying the 50s.. but it did rain so do not get mad at me yet!

Hope your Christmas rocked!

Pretty photo Karli. I'm a little jealous of that blue sky & how fast you captured that shot though! ;)
I have to admit; the first thing I thought of was Cindy Lou Who and Who-Ville or maybe Charlie Brown Christmas. One of them had a tree with just branches & ornaments.
Off to check the internet movie database.

It's super SHARP. And the colors are so bright against that lovely light blue sky. I think you are pretty fabulous yourself, missy.

Anna said...

I'm tired just reading about your racing - but it was worth it - nice shot. Great work not blowing out the sky.

Warren Baldwin said...

Do you have a picture of a little boy batting? Would go with a blog post of mine. wb

Lovely shot! I like that's it's unique. That's quite a bit of running around, but it was worth it!
