    Weekly Theme "LOOK UP"

    The theme this week is LOOK UP, we tend to walk about viewing the world at eye level and never look up unless someone is pointed out to us. Bend your head back now, hurts don't it, thats because we rarely do it (unless we are plane spotters). So while out and about, in town, in the country, in the house just have a moment and look up, you might be surprised what you see. I hasn't to be something flying at 30,000ft it can be just the top of a building, a piece of architecture you hadn't noticed before - use your eyes.

    This theme came to me last week when on two occasions in the same week I for some unknown reason looked up and twice got a couple of photos I am well chuffed about, mainly because they captured things that I wasn't aware were going off.


    ONLY 2 IMAGES PER POST PLEASE - GIVE EVERYONE A CHANCE

    So here are the two shots I was talking about .....

    #1 - I had seen the moon in a clear blue sky and then noticed in the distance a plane approaching and wondered just how close it would get. As I had seen the plane approaching I had plenty of time to get the correct lens on and prepare myself to get the shot I wanted.



    #2 - Again looking up I just happened to catch what looked like a dot in the sky, I could make out it was a bird and as it was soaring so it had to be a hawk of some kind. Once again I had time to get the correct lens on and get a shot, I estimate the bird was at about 1000ft when I first saw it. This might not be a rare site where you guys live but we don't get many opportunities to see Buzzards where I live, but then who knows because I rarely LOOK UP.

    As Yorkshireman said, it doesn't have to be way up in the sky to be interesting:

    Nothing much to say, I just liked how these stairs looked from below:

    But in order of preference, I would have to vote for the beauty of the image of the two cats.
