Focus on Life: Outside - Look Up!

....what I found there.

Look there, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane... oh, it is a plane!

Our Focus on Life prompt for this week is "The View of Above."

Last weekend, I was walking past our tiny local airport and saw two people tinkering with an ultralight aircraft. I watched for a while, but they seemed to be more interested in tinkering than flying, so I walked on. Of course I was wrong. I looked up and there was the ultralight. They take off really quick!

Pre-flight Check.

Another angle. 

There she goes!
 And since I can't leave well enough alone.......

This morning's sky.

Let's see what is over our friends' heads!


  1. I've been in a Cesna, a glider and a jumbo, but I'd be terrified to get into one of these...
    Great shots, though :)

  2. How fun to see one of these fly. But I agree with Claire. Great photos

  3. Fantastic 'looking up' shots. That plane is nifty! But I don't think I'd ever get in it!!!

  4. Who could resist that morning sky - it's beautiful! Glad you were able to capture their flight, too - great shot!

  5. Very cool aircraft shots. Love the red wings against the blue sky. Seems like most of us had great weather in our skies this past week.

  6. Would love to see clouds, but we seem to have endless fog... today it''s fog and drizzle. Cute plane!

  7. I love the contrast of colors, it's so playful and light.
