Sky Watch Friday 7-25

Sky Watch Friday has a new home and a life of it's own. Please check out the new sight and link in if you wish to participate. There were 330 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar. You can click on any photo to see them better.

My theme this week is 'Up In The Air'. I have been capturing for a while so a lot of different Skies. Here is a hot air balloon in Kent, OH.
This is an airplane I saw circling to land at the KSU airport.
Here is a helicopter I saw at work at Stow, OH.
This helicopter brought Tim McGraw to his concert.
It made a swing around Blossom Music Center before leaving.
This was an advertising plane at the Kenny Chesney concert at Cleveland Stadium.
So there was something up in the air to see, the skies were different so I showed them all.

Well, you covered the theme nicely! But it was so complete I'm wondering where the Space Shuttle was! %;-r

I notice the sky all the time now and it is astonishing what man puts up there. You have quite an assortment here, FG.

Dina said...

Lots of action in your skies. Good you were there, camera in hand.
Especially like the big side view of the helicopter.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Yep, everything is up in the air, FG! I especially love the balloon shot. Wish I could catch some overhead but I haven't seen any in quite some time!

What interesting photos these are! I like them all, it's neat to see so many different things in the sky. The hot air balloon is my favorite. :)

CrazyCath said...

All very different skies, and different ways of travelling in the sky! Great shots.

Craver Vii said...

The photos are great, but I just noticed from the sidebar that you're married once, to the same woman for 45 years. Kudos, Sir! I've only been married 20 years so far... I guess that makes me a rookie. :-)

Angie said...

Up,up and away in my beautiful balloon! Great photos.

HFD60 said...

Great SWF photos...

Jim said...

Those are nice pictures, I like to catch things flying in the sky also. Mother Nature doesn't alway approve of the things we put into our sky.
Thank you for peeking in at my Kansas BK sign in the sky, I'm sure Mother Nature doesn't like that kind of pollution, I don't either. (we did eat there.)

Joyce on her Justified Journey said...

Well, I see someone pays attention to some great country music stars! How cool to catch pics of their transportation. Saw Brooks & Dunn leave a concert recently in their tour bus. It was fun to see! I love the hot air balloon, the plane, the helicopter! Great shots!!

Jack and Joann said...

As the old man Jerry Lee Louis would say---a whole lot of shaking going on. Sky Watch Friday is action oriented this week and has a country western flavor. I like it!

Anne-Berit said...

I love the hot air balloon shot. When I was a kid they used to do hot air balloon launches near my house. Every summer I got to sit out in my yard and watch them fly by. It was such a treat. You picture took me back.
