my own private idaho

skywatch friday time again! thanks for stopping by.

thought i'd start with a photo of my able & ever happy assistants- echo the bouvier & halle the greater swiss mountain dog- both of who are more than happy to get out on skywatch photo shoots.

Beautiful collection, Marianne! I take it a Swiss mountain dog is slightly smaller than a St Bernard's - but they look not dissimilar. I love the light in your sunset shot and the blues and muted greens in the sunrise.

thanks all! glad you like the photos!

janice- the swissy is 95 lbs, males can get up to 130- not sure how large saints get. a very old breed, swissies contributed to the development of both saint bernards and rottweilers. (your fun dog fact for the day!)

I love the 'familiar' grandeur of these shots but the last one of the birds on the wire touches my heart.
Thanks for sharing!

I love your "happy assistants" and the birds on the wires crossing the clouds! Have a great weekend!

marianne said...

thanks all- glad you enjoyed them

noni- thought of you when i posted the sgaebrush photo :)

amanda- serenity is just what looking at the sky usually does for me- it's so much bigger than any problem i can come up with

eileen- thanks- i should have probably had the flash on when i shot the dogs, but i hate that unnatural lighting..... they ARE pretty cute, aren't they;)

rambles- look forward to seeing more of your bloggin- today's shot was nice!

happy friday all!

Gorgeous sunset-- and I love the silhouetted birds against the sky. There's something whimsical about little birds on the wires... they always seem like they're gossiping about something.

Hi Marianne,
I enjoyed all your photos, but I must admit that those dogs take the Sky Watch prize! I've always enjoyed my trips through Idaho - mostly to ski.

Dianne said...
