Sky Watch Friday

Union Jack

I just liked the different elements in this scene - the grey/blue sky, the flag, the roof tops, the green splash of colour from the tree and the little pigeon (can you spot him?)

Flags are difficult to photograph, aren't they? I took about five different shots of this scene and this was the best flag one. I really wanted a photo with a fully flying flag. Better luck next time.

I know how it is trying to get a flag to open up for a picture. This is a really nice one and I sure did spot the pigeon. :-)

Nicely composed.

I distinctly remember waiting for the royal flag to unfurl at Windsor Castle. It got comical after 1/2 hour. I like the different building materials here and the pastel sky. Enjoy Skywatch Friday!

Nice capture of the flag. I like the overall effect of the photo, too. And yes, I see the pigeon. :)

Nice composition.
That tree looks very lush under the grey sky.

If the wind's steady I guess it'll be easy, but not when it's blowing all over the place. I almost missed the pigeon!

I'm glad it's not just me, any good flag photos I've taken have definitely been a case of more luck than judgement!

I have yet to get a flag shot that I like. Nicely done.

I know don't they always collapse just as you hit the shutter.

I see Mr Pigeon there! He's waiting for the full flying flag, too! hehehe

It's great to see you back commenting on my blog & I'm so glad I got the problem fixed! I would never have guessed those weather widgets was the problem, I thought it was the music playlists! Who'da thunk it? hehehe

For some reason it looks to me like a ship with THE jack passing by a building.

I see the pigeon! I agree flags are difficult to photo. I was trying on the weekend. It is a nice mix up of colour and scene.

You are right about the elements. It is a many layered image drawing you in. Can you tell I am playing catch up with blogging. One of those weeks.
