Round Robin Photo Challenge: Looking UP

Things are really LOOKING UP for those of us who participated in this Round Robin challenge, which was suggested by Robinella.

I dare you to look at all of these without getting a crick in your neck! These photos are from my archives; none of them have been posted recently, and some never have been.

Looking up at the sky through the leaves of a tree at the Rio Grande Zoo.

Looking up at the steeple of the church in Albuquerque's Old Town.

Looking up at the graceful geese in this piece of public art in Albuquerque.

Looking up at one of the towers of the Salinas Pueblo Mission ruins (NM).

Looking up at two climbers, near the Gilman Tunnels, NM.

Looking up at fireworks from last year's Fourth of July celebration, Albuquerque.

Looking up at a bald eagle as it leaves its perch at the top of a tree, Juneau, Alaska.

Looking up at hot air balloons, floating above the crowd at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

Looking up at the Thunderbirds in a 2006 air show at Kirtland Air Force Base.

You can find a list of other Round Robin challengers HERE. Visit some of them, if you have time.

What great pictures! I especially love the statue with the geese---had to look a second time to be sure they weren't real

I so enjoyed your photos. We spent a couple of weeks in New Mexico two years ago and fell in love with the Albuquerque, especially the park along the Rio Grande. Those ruins look amazing. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
