Two Views from Assisi, Italy for Skywatch Friday

This is a view from the Piazza Santa Chiara in Assisi, Italy.
This tree was in the Piazza at the Assisi train station. I loved how they trimmed it up and of course the moss growing on it added a little extra something and, the branches are reaching toward the beautiful sky above. Enjoy.

Be sure to take a peek at other SKYWATCH FRIDAY posts this week. This meme is hosted by: Klaus | Sandy | Ivar | Wren | Fishing Guy| Louise who do a fab job. We had over 330 participants in Sky Watch last week.

That first shot looks like a soft pastel. Nice captures Erin. Have a great weekend.

Dewdrop said...

I love those shots. I am with Gaelyn, I love the softness.

The perspective on the tree shot is terrific.

Tornado warning in Bedford. Are you near there...? Be mindful of weather, take cover with any nearby warnings.

Carletta said...

These are gorgeous!
Have to agree about the softness of the first and I like the dramatic feel of the bare branches.

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

Your dreamy Assisi picture really makes me want to go there.
They didn't leave much on the tree but I suppose it will be green soon.

I had to do a double and then a triple look at that tree before I determined that it was a tree. I love your photographs.

Ebie said...

Erin, the first photo looks like a painting.

Really great shots. They're beautiful. That tree is really interesting.

chrome3d said...

You make a cutted tree look so fine and glowing. Colours shined so beautifully.

Rajesh said...

Erin, fantastic snaps. The lone leafless tree in front of the building is also good.

Shaun said...

Really nicely done. Your post production is incredibly good and very effective...

Shaun said...

.... sorry not to take anything away from the actual composition too...

MedaM said...

The view on the first photo is magical! I like that soft colors and the light which give the photo some special look.
The tree on the second photo really looks so interesting. I like the angle you chose to take the photo. The sky is spectacular on both photos!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Great shots with lovely Italian architecture.

Regina said...

Amazing! love the colors.

Essence of Maine said...

Absolutely beautiful!

Jo said...

Beautiful, Erin. The first photo looks like a water painting. And the stark "fingers" of the tree reaching up pulls the eye towards the sky. Excellent contribution for SWF. Enjoy the weekend.

VALKYRIEN said...

I must say your photos are of a very unusual quality! I always feel good after visiting your blog, seeing these brilliant images!

Thanks for sharing your art - that is how I see your work! :)

Small City Scenes said...

Such great shots. I feel a little sad for the tree thought. That much pruning is not natures way. MB

magiceye said...

fantastic captures!!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Great photos and i love how you captured that tree.

I am glad to hear that you adopted a kitten. So many people get kitties and then forget to have them spayed or neutered till it is too late So sad as there are way too many cats

Gattina said...

The tree is really extraordinary.

I really like this first photo, but both of them show a beautiful blue sky. The tree is certainly intriguing.
