Up into the Skies (Friday Skies)

One last shot from my few days in Brisbane. Was thinking about sky shots and saw the crane - which I thought was a good link. Its what we use when we want to lift things into the sky - so I thought that was a nice link. As I was setting up the shot in flies a plane - another way we get things into the sky. As the plane was way above the thin window of light that was illuminating the crane it looks black, a nice contrast to the colours of the crane.


So here you have it - two ways to get to the sky, under a sky that could never be really reached.

The red and yellow crane is handsome against the "fuzzy" blue backdrop.
