Skywatch Friday--Crows on Lavender Sky

This was a quick shot off my porch. Occasionally, due to temperature and haze (dare I say smog) factors, the Belgrade sky often takes on unusual colors, and this is a case in point. A minute later, this color was gone.

Zdravo Bibi, I just recently discovered your site and enjoy your photos of life in Belgrade. I hope to visit sometime!

I love this shot of the sky and birds. I love the simplicity and the open space of the sky.

Pefect... just perfect you have caught the view so well...

We get skies of strange colours now and then, and yes those are caused by air pollution also..

A sky to share!
I am still thinking about your icecream scoops, we do need them over here. Do you think they ship them overseas?

Oh what a beautiful shot. I think the composition is particularly attractive. The respective positions of the birds and the white line are just right. Gorgeous!

Thanks for your visit in Avignon and confiding in the reason why you started wearing hats. That was a very moving message. I wish you a long and healthy life now.

Lavender Sky. I always say this but sometimes these opportunity shots,are the most stunning. One of the most unique, certainly in colour I've seen today. The birds fr me of course are the bonus.

I absolutely LOVE this photo. The colour of the sky is just fantastic and the birds accentuate it and stand out beautifully. Great job!
