The beach is beautiful…but look UP!

We love spending time at Canaveral National Seashore.

You never know what you’ll see and last week we had to take our eyes off the ocean and the seashells along the shore to look UP!

A helicopter went by.

And then 2 airplanes circled overheard.

Diane, I love your pictures. I some times will be in the yard and look up and run in the house to get my camera. :):) I love pictures of the sky, planes, clouds....you already know I love sunrises and sunsets. Hope you are having a great Sunday. The sun is shining here. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

So pretty! Loved the 2 planes....they looked old or maybe just had neat paint jobs?

Inger said...

I love your mosaic! And the capture of the osprey. I know how difficult it can be to capture a flying bird so successfully. It is a gorgeous shot.

That first picture is truly pretty, Diane. To see a rainbow around the sun is quite special, indeed.

Happy November!

Hi Diane,
We do get so wrapped up in the sand and water at the beach that we forget to look up. Lovely skies and surprises await!

It surely was a glorious day at the beach. I agree, sometimes we just need to lift our heads and see what is happening in the sky above us, it's amazing what you see!

Beautiful skies Diane ... So glad you looked up too! Florida skies really are heavenly! Funny, I see a lot of those birds that refuse to divulge their name too;)).
