Sunday Stills - Powerlines and Landscapes

Well isn't it always wonderful to see a beautiful sunset or sky and have powerlines and road signs and all manner of other things interrupt our photographs? Well here are my two top pics for this weeks challenge. By the way, I did absolutely no editing on either of these photos. I can't believe the color I captured in the first sunset!
Here's the blurb for this week:
"Sunday Stills the next challenge: Powerlines and Landscapes
I was attempting to photograph the sunrise this morning and would’nt ya know it the darn powerlines were everywhere, which brings us to the next challenge. If you can’t beat it use it, since power lines are a photographers worst nightmare lets use this to our advantage. So find a cool landscape, sunrise, that would look great except it needs the dreaded powerlines to mess it up, and throw in a bilboard too, they are just as bad..:-)
I’ll include a pic with this challenge so you get the idea.
Have fun…Ed"

Sunday Stills - Yellow

Well as you can see the topic for this weeks challenge was the color yellow. I had many, many, many photos to choose from but these are the ones I liked best! The top flower and the Sun are from my sister's house. The bird and the other two flowers were taken at Germantown Nature Center on Friday evening. I hope you all had fun and enjoy!
Here's the blurb, short as it is ;}
"Sunday Stills the next Challenge: The color Yellow
This should be pretty easy, I have a headache today and a bad connection in Mississippi so I have to make this short .
Happy hunting..Ed"

I just hope I can keep coming up with interesting challenges to keep ya’ll occupied. So with that in mind THANK YOU all!!
Now on to business, by now there should be some greenery in just about everywhere, so lets shoot some flowers and plants for the folks without flowers…:-)
See ya’ll next week. I’m off to get a few pics ready for my Monday Macro post for tomorrow at Thoughts from the Road if ya get a sec stop by and say hello.
