Looking at the Sky on Friday - 45


I’m so glad there’s a meme like Looking at the Sky on Friday, because it means all the time I spend looking at the sky, and taking pictures of it, has a purpose! Click the badge for more info.

I finally broke down and bought a new camera.  I’ve been looking for one that is small enough to fit in my purse that also has a decent optical zoom.  I bought this Olympus Stylus-9000 – it was on sale with a coupon code and bing cashback, so I got it for around $158.  That $150 price range seems to be our norm when it comes to buying digital cameras, and the cameras have improved every time.

Anyway, I haven’t completely figured this new camera out, but I did take a couple pictures of the sky this week, trying it out.

If you enjoy skies as much as I do, be sure to check out Looking at the Sky on Friday.


  1. Lovely sunrise, the transition from the night gray thru the blues and pinks to the sunburst is beautiful. Despite the snow, a nice day is going to occur...The moon is nice, but what catches my eye is how the sky is not black, but I see a dark burgundy from the moon to the houses below. Beautiful takes!

  2. I love sunrise! I am jealous with the second photo, my camera can't capture the beautiful moon. :(

    Happy LATSOF!

    Mine is here.

  3. This is my first time in Looking at the Sky on Friday meme.
    Very nice start for your new camera - beautiful shots!

    Happy sky looking from Cairo! :)


  4. You can take an amazing shot with no matter what sort of device you're using! I love the shot of the sun rising over the snow. Very nicely done.

    Thanks so much (as always) for playing along.

    Happy Weekend.
