Challenge #3 in the Colours & Shades: The World I Know series. Hosted by Stormcastle.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is all about the things above this world of ours - the skies, the clouds, the heavens, the moon, and the stars. All of you out there who are drawn to look up are invited to submit your best photo of the sky and anything in it - can be a wide angle landscape, or it can be an extreme telephoto shot of the moon. It can be a bird... it can be a plane... it can be Superman if you spot him.
