Looking at the Sky - Steeple Sunburst


Looking at the Sky is a heavenly meme. We look at the sky and appreciate an expansive beauty that could not ever be captured on a mere piece of canvas. We often can see interesting relationships between sky and earth. Such as the brilliant sunburst intruding above the steeple of the First Congregational Church in Derby Connecticut. The solar burst is a pleasant intrusion to the monochrome sky blue sitting overhead. See the sky in many iterations at Tisha's meme!

Very nicely done. Once I did a whole Thursday Thirteen of steeples. Have a wonderful week-end.

Great timing on that shot Ralph and what a good time to have your camera on hand.

I have been disobeying my own rule and not taking my camera with me everywhere. I been suffering for it.


Nice job my friend.

Steeples silhouetted against the sky have always been one of my favorite things to photograph. My favorite one is one I took across the street from the site of the OK City bombing. Some things never change...
This is really beautiful.

On my moniter I see a purplish glow around the sunburst - fitting I think for your steeple.
I'm also a fan of steeples against the sky and I like the double tiered design of this one.
Lovely image Ralph! I needed a burst of sunshine as it is rainy here today - thanks. :)

Really pretty purple-ish blue you have goin' on there! I used to be a "ringer" in a Congregational church choir, many years ago. Fun times!

PS - we only WISH that Expedition Everest could cool off the Sunshine State... well, some days. Most days we love it just the way it is down here :)

The sunburst reminds me of a fairy light. Such an interesting blue/purple hue to the sky.

What a great perspective, Ralph, and I do love a New England church steeple! There's nothing like them anywhere in my own humble opinion!

Wow! Great capture! The framing's really good, with the sun on the top left, the trees on the lower right and the tower in the middle. Looks like another perfect day. --- www.prettyfirefly.com
