Round Robin Challenge: In Flight

From For Ellipsis

"The air up there is pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? It is the same as the angels breathe."

-Mark Twain

Flying. Yuck. I don't think you will ever find me in an airplane again, but then again, if I won a trip somewhere mildly interesting, and I had a fresh supply of Valium, I could be persuaded. LOL. Gosh, the last time I ventured on a plane, I stupidly wore stiletto heels and a black sweater dress. WRONG. LOL. I was so tense that by the time I got to the east coast, I had severe cramps in both legs! That was in 1992 and I vowed "NEVER AGAIN." But all joking aside, as much as I dislike flying, I love photography more, so I could be talked into going somewhere as long as it would result in some interesting photography. Yeah... that would be nice! Until then... I will just leave it to the experts...

Monica said...

The seagull is so cool! I also am partial to the hummingbird photos. Beautiful, all of them!


Yecap said...

Carly your photos are brilliant! Where do you find humming birds that pose for you like that?

As far as an interesting location for you to shoot, how about central Australia? Different? Sure is...


Jama said...

Cool shots, Carly!I love the second photo.

Nancy said...

So many flying little time. Mine's up, nonetheless...


ellen b said...

Your photos are amazing Carly!! I'm blown away!

Myfanwy said...

When I decided to join this challenge I just knew that everybody else would have access to much more interesting subjects! LOL. I've only looked here and found that I was right! However, I'm learning, and although my entry might be a bit of a letdown my aim is to improve my photographic skills! Thanks for having me.....

Lana G! said...

Carly! Wow on your photography! I am cracking up on your airplane comments. I was nervous to fly as well but now am on an airplane 2 days a week! I have been flying weekly now for almost 8 years!! I actually find it relaxing now. Go figure.

Sherrie said...

Hi Carly,
Awesome photos! I really like that one of the goose in flight! I have never been on an airplane but would probably feel the same way. You would have to knock me out to get me on the plane! Have a great week end!!


Suzanne R said...

Beautiful shots, Carly! I really liked this theme. I had hoped to get more in flight shots if I had gone to the coast at the first of the week but it was not to be. :-( Oh well -- it is fun seeing what everyone else has posted!

Terri said...

Wow, that first seagull photo is spectacular! I feel like I'm right there. Love those hummingbirds too. Great work!

robinellablog said...

Hi Carly,

Your photo, as always, are wonderful. The hummingbirds are stunning! :o)

Marina said...

wow! beautiful, beautiful photos! I love the first one: awesome [seagull is my animal spirit]. I enjoy watching them up high gliding in the currents......

Sandcastle Momma said...

Your photos are beautiful! I love the color in the flowers and that Hummingbird shot is incredible.
Seagulls are fun to watch and you've captured them perfectly.

Teena in Toronto said...

Nice pix!

I played too :)

Ourhomeschool said...

Great shots! I love the ones of the sea gulls. Beautiful.

Butch and Angie said...

We think your seagull pics are awesome. All your photos are great! We had the flock of butterfly photos and they were taken in our backyard. I couldn't believe it when we walked out and saw the trees shimmering! It must be on their migration path.
