Ripples of Hope

“Each time a man stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope” Robert F Kennedy

Thank you to all the friendly Sky Watchers who make Fridays a wonderful world wide adventure seeing the sky from many different angles.  Sharing a view from an early morning walk just before the blazing sun popped over the horizon.
A new creative project using bits from old books, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and chipboard trims.

Flakes of gold in that sky.
Locely contrast with the stormy dark brooding sea.
Wish I was near the sea. Haven't photographed that for ages.

Hi Mandy, thanks for dropping by my blog. You have some really terrific coastal photos, I especially love the eagle...he's a beauty. I used to watch one in particular when I lived on the coast in QLD (Yeppoon), he would hover above the mangroves, just floating on the warm air currents. Sometimes when hubby dragged us all up the beach to go fishing the kids and I would get so bored that we would start throwing the bait (pilchards I think) up in the air where the hovering ospreys would swoop down to feed on...far more interesting than trying to catch fish! Stay dry! Robx
