Skywatch Friday Aspirations...

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead-Louisa May Alcott

Please take some time to visit Skywatch Friday for more fabulous photographs from throughout the world. Thanks.

I always love to see a weathered wood's texture. And you've captured it perfectly well.

Thanks for visiting my SWF.

Thanks for showing us this church tower - first of its kind I've seen. The colours are exquisite against the blue sky.

Top of an old church? Either way I like the shot. Happy sky watching!

A beautiful tower. Lovely wood work and trim on this building of a similar age as your Louisa May Alcott quote.

That really is a beautiful sky watch photo. The wooden bell tower looks so old and interesting against that lovely blue sky.

That is such an excellent perspective and exciting positioning of the church steeple within the frame.

The angles, the colors...just gorgeous!
