sky scraper

There is a timed floodlight on a building near my home.  It lights up the tree at eleven PM like daylight.  I have often thought about taking night pics here, and I finally brought the tripod and took this picture.  And do you know what I noticed?  Do you see the star near the top of the tree?  Well, I had never realized that this tree... is almost as tall as the stars.  Any taller, and it might poke, scrape or tear the night's velvety shroud.  ;-)

For the next thee weeks, I plan to cooperate with a few blogging friends in a header competition.  While this is technically called a competition, for me, it is more like a community event.  We five will submit a post and header around the same subject.  I was afraid I might not have time, so I have only said yes to doing this for three weeks.  I do not know if I will be able to continue after that.  If you have not visited their blogs before, would you please consider viewing their posts and leaving a comment?  More information will be posted a couple of days from now.

I am in Florida....took my Nikon for repairs. I miss my camera....sigh.
Looking forward to seeing your shots on the Header sites. I always enjoy going to their blogs.

Magnifico - my friend.

Im sure you will last more than 3 weeks, with your knowhow and the spirit for a competition with lots of fun - you go go a lot more-----

I'm glad you liked the title Jackie, because I couldn't come up with one that used the tool I am so fond of: alliteration.

We'll see about the three weeks Imac. I am miserably slow. This first one has taken more time so far than what I expected. But as much as I try to avoid adding things to my plate, I have to admit that I'm enjoying Headbanging so far. :-)

I didn't realize trees grew so tall in your neck of the woods. But you got a great picture.

I'm sure you will more than hold your own with the Headbangers.
