Blue skies for Skywatch Friday

Blue skies, smilin' at me, nothin' but blue skies do I see

George is getting into these Skywatch photos...literally.  He helps me search out the most interesting angle, stands calmly while I lie flat on my back in the corral, then lets me hang on to him while I haul my butt off the ground.  We're still working on the part where he brushes the dirt off my clothes.  Blue skies and burros...doesn't take much to keep me smilin'.

Blue days, all of them gone, nothin' but blue skies from now on

  4. That's worth a smile. I love the golden light as well as the blue sky and burro. Be careful where you lie in the corral, or does George make sure the angle doesn't get more than just a little dirt on your clothes?

  11. This is another picture that had me smiling at the wonder of where you were when the shot was taken... we certainly put ourselves into some funny places to get our shots.

    Thank for joining in with Sky Watch this week...TOM

  12. I think I'd skip a sky picture to see a shot of this maneuvering to acquire the sky shot - any chance of that? The sky is a stunning blue - and tell George he could come live here if he would like. Very nice shot.

  16. I just love our beautiful NM skies.

    But I thought George was grey. Did the sun bleach him that bright golden color?

    He makes a cute blonde.
    All he needs a surf board and Volkswagon bug! :)
