5 in the sky

Joining Sandie for her fun 5 in 5 monthly meme.

I decided I’d like a theme while snapping on my daily walk by the river.  With a low sun and lots of bare trees I decided to look up and seek strong dark shapes.

with the tangled branches,

JAN-5-3

crows commanding the high spot,

JAN-5-2

and the pigeon flock swooping around

JAN-5-1

and a touch of sunlight gilding the clouds behind the chimney pots

JAN-5-5

and more bare branches

Thanks Sandie for the prompt to take a series of photos and pick the 5 best.  Thinking I’ll repeat this exercise when there are leaves on the trees and a bluer sky

5 gorgeous photo's Helena, It will be lovely to see them again against a blue sky. I like all the birds, I have just done a similar one in B&W

Thank you for taking part Helena and I love your theme of 'looking up'. It's a great idea to try out new perspective and since I love silhouette and skies this set of photos really appeal to me. I may have to make a list of themes myself for '5 in 5'!
I also look forward to seeing these trees in leaf and some blue sky. At least we have those to look forward to.

Wow, what a great group of photos. I think it would definitely be interesting to try this again in a different season.

These silhouettes are visually so striking - and really interesting to look at. I do like the top one in particular ...

Great shots Helena. I like the idea of doing it again when the trees are leafed out. Chimney pots? Thats a new one for me.
