T is for Tall

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday letter is T

The ones at the right whose tips disappear again into fog are:
Dark brooding one - Bank of America Building
Pointy one - Transamerica pyramid

as in Tall Towers of San Francisco as I saw them at dawn today, so tall that their tops were visible over the fog that blanketed much of the bay (although one can see another wave of fog rolling in to obscure the tops of the tallest ones) or...

Tall Trees, as seen in this view looking straight up into a redwood forest, or...

Tall mountains, as in this view from our flight as we left Seattle.

Don't forget to go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place and check out all the beautiful photos.

Beautiful photos for T. The one with the fog is spectacular but of course I'm partial to that beauty Mt. Rainier from my favorite place in the US!

What a lovely collection of photos. As I've just said on someone else's blog, I love the fact that you're in California and I'm in Wales and we're brought together by this!

Hi Granny Smith,
Welcome to ABC Wednesday. Always good to see a first-timer's work.
Your skyline is fabulous.
You're invited to my Jerusalem anytime. Shalom!

Hello Granny Smith it's nice to see somebody of about my age.On my first blog I used to be called Oma , which means Granny in Dutch. I like your photos!

reader Wil said...

Granny Smith Thanks for the visit! I believe indeed that we have a lot in common! And we are probably the same generation! I hope to see you more often.

I don't fly much at but I remember going to Tenerife and see El Teidie rising above the clouds and it looked like an island in a swirling white sea and then we flew down through the clouds to the real island.

Welcome and thanks for the beauty!

That's the mountain outside my window, that is! Tall, innit? Thanks for the nice words on me blog. Cheers.

Thanks for the visit.

I love the shot from the aeroplane - I always try to do that but either the plane rolls or we hit an airpocket and I don't get the picture,lol.

Cheers

Granny Smith, thanks for your comments on my blog. In fact I discovered your blog a few months ago on Sunday Scribblings and have come back to lurk regularly. Love that shot of the towers of San Francisco peeking out through the fog!

I didn't find you last week as I didn't get around too much because I was camping on your tall mountain.
