Completely Exposed...


...those trees.  There is a lot of farmland around the perimeter of Coventry.  The trees you see here are on the top of a ridge and completely exposed to the rain, wind and (possibly on Sunday) snow that comes from any direction.

Have a look at more skies worldwide by following this link - Skywatch Friday.

Have a wonderful weekend all.  I am looking forward to our British Academy Awards show on Sunday night.  I feel totally prepared :).  Wonder if Adele will be singing the theme song from 'Skyfall' live on the show.

Adele singing would be perfect

Oh, this could be a painting! Perfect landscape and sky - I love that soft light. Hope Adele sings after all, what a theme song:)

(The linked group I used today is like a German version of Skywatch Friday! I didn't know of it, but someone connected to it asked if I wanted to link a photo there. They've lovely pictures and many participants also dual-link to Skywatch Friday. Give it a spin! Your Skywatch Fri photos would be lovely.)

This is a beautiful shot - the scenery is bare and lovely!

Adele said...

This is beautiful!! Such amazing contrast. Enjoy the show, LOL. Maybe Other Adele will sing for you. She's amazing!

Yep, looks pretty wind-swept - and a little bit wild, despite the evidence of crops. I like it!

Excellent image LOL, there's a real sense of barrenness here!

Love the wilderness feeling on a sparse landscape.

Thank you ALL. The day yesterday had the same feel...so when I say it is cold and damp here - just think of that photo :).

Lulu - Thanks for that info re Skywatch. I will join in (if I remember...ha ha).

Now to the film comments:

No Adele!!!! She was at the Grammy Awards and a winner. Well done, Adele. (I am smiling because of we have an 'Adele' from Sierra Madre joining us here too. 'Hi' Adele!

PerthDP - Cool you get British TV programs. Our family in Oz say that there are quite a few English shows now on TV there. They love seeing Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross shows (only 1 week delay).

Time for a cup of coffee now and to visit your blogs!
