Sky Watch Friday No. 25

This is my 200th post! What a great way to celebrate, sharing a special tree with all of you. I took these photos at sunrise. I have not edited them in any way, these are the raws photos. The wind gusts were up to 60 mph, so nothing was too still. As stiff as the wind was the tree stood solid, as it has my entire life.
Have a wonderful new year.








Please go visit the other great Skywatch participants at SkyWacth Friday There are wonderful photos from all around the world!

Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Great photos Syndi, Ron told me not to go outside or the wind would blow my ass off. I went out there and unfortunately my ass is still attached. Never hurts to try i guess. :o(
