Usery Mountain Regional Park, Mesa, Arizona. December 28, 2021.

This month’s Midweek Madness Challenge Pick-a-Topic from Cee’s photo sent me searching for pictures of trees against the sky. Here are five I have taken in the last fourteen months.

Photo Challenge: Overhead

“Looking up” is what I remember.

But “overhead” is the actual Tuesday Photo Challenge this week.

A rather literal interpretation struck my fancy this morning.  My husband was willing to model: hat, umbrella, and clouds overhead.  Too bad it wasn’t raining.

Overhead - umbrella plus

He had a little fun spinning the umbrella as I looked up.

Another LQQK at the patterns on the underside skeleton of an umbrella:

After playing with the umbrella and the camera, I went for a walk.  Here’s the sky overhead – to my left and to my right!

Hope things are looking up for you this week!
