The "condo" makes a great silhouette against that gorgeous sky!

Lesley said...

those birds usually get the best views - even from home, it seems!

Ooh- my favourite picture this week - stunning - I need a pad with a view like that! Oh, and sorry for the chilly blast from Alberta!

Gorgeous! What a beautiful sky.

this is a splendid skywatch photo. the colors are dreamy and I love the silhouette. I cannot get that with my point and shoot. I saw on tonight's weather report that it is colder in Dallas than Anchorage right now. this is pretty unusual weather. I know quite a few people from WI that have had some troubles getting to Texas for the Super Bowl because of the weather, and the local reporters who traveled there to cover it are appearing in parkas each night! thanks for visiting my blog, I'm honored. I hope your weather returns to normal very soon!

I thought at first it was traffic lights. Beautiful amazing colours.

Very nice picture. Couldn't have painted a more appropriate sky.
