      I’d like to propose starting a new thread.

      As there is a strong relationship between the land and the sky let’s see your pictures that feature the two in equal measure.  Bodies of water will also count as a land element.

      It’ll be interesting to see what you come up with.

      To get things started here is my offering for #1.

      Land and Sky is not dissimilar to my Cloudscape topic which I introduced as a combination of Cloud and Landscape. So I am with you in spirit Duncan. Good Luck with this topic to you and your pussycat.

      Duncan,  I am happy to throw in #2 to your proposed thread.  Now I won’t crop off the land so much.

      Ruth first out the starting gate.  Good job.  Yes, I know technically you’re second, but I’m not counting my ice-breaker.

      Now that I think of it, I should have named the thread Land, Sea and Sky, as all three are so inextricably linked.

      Duncan, this thread is a nice imitative. I think the fence on your picture will not stop what’s coming. It is a great composition imo. And Ruth is right, we have to give the land a bit more exposure for this thread. I therefore have to search for land and sky image,  since I prefer – until now – to picture details of only clouds or views with mainly clouds. This is one I found to make a start with on this new topic.

        Hans, good choice.

        Although there’s very little in the image there is a lot going on.

      Thanks Duncan. I hope you understood that I meant “initiative” and not imitative. I have to blame the stupid spellchecker.

      Next one was taken just a moment before the former one.

      Thank you, Duncan ~~ this will be fun! Love the fresh breath that comes with seeing these beautiful first images here from you and Ruth and Hans. Such a great sense of space in each photo.

        Keelin,

        I have mixed feelings about this one.  The melancholy from the hard metallic foreground is countered by the soft pillowy texture of the clouds.  I am drawn to the sea, but my soul wants to drift amongst the clouds.

        Hopefully, we’ll see some inspired images in future posts.

        I’ve seen already inspired images in the former posts. I love the Santa Cruz Bay, Early Morning Keelin. A great view over water and sky.

      You’re so right, Ruth, and your Flowers Too is a fine example.

      Duncan, I am drawn as well to the sea and love it in any of its moods. One of my sisters lives in Santa Cruz and I never see the same sea hue twice in a row whenever I visit her. You captured a dazzling river of light wiggling its way to the sea and beyond.

      Hans, I know you must also share an affinity for the sea. I love the tiny accent of that lone seabird in Some Delay. And the windswept grasses on the dunes adds yet another felt dimension to your second posted photo here.

      While I haven’t many images that fit well into this new topic yet, here is one from the archives. Another quietly moody shot, but as I recall, not at all a match for my own mood in the moment it was taken.

      Clouded Sky, Textured Sea is so serene Keelin. Love the view over these smooth and calm waters. Peaceful. Air to breathe…..

      Grass and Fog followed by Gees Too form a great duo Ruth perfectly fitting together. Overwhelming vastness.

        Ruth,

        My kind of place.

        I imagine it as it was when Buffalo herds were in their millions.

        What mountain range is that off in the distance?

      Duncan, thanks for asking the mountain range.  I believe it is the Ruby Range.  The photos are in the southern part of the state.  Yes, there are buffalo in the area.  It is beautiful and wild.

      Nice thread, I believe glider flying, when you are alone without an engine, you get to learn how strong can be the bond between land and sky, to appreciate how deeply the land influences the sky, that literally keeps you up. Here a shot taken in the South of Italy, late December 2021.

      Nice to meet you here Giuseppe! Great sky over Italy.

      Ruth I love all your images with birds. Especially your last pelican. The birds give an extra dimension to this thread.

      My last one in this thread was from a long time ago with the horses in the wind on the beach. Here’s another B&W. Did you already check the B&W thread Giuseppe?
