Where's Waldo

Sky Watch Friday

Wally's in a solid red shirt today.
Where's his red/white striped shirt?

A photograph of an old shipwreck near the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon.

There is a beautiful sky and sunshine on the way!


Skeleton of a Once Majestic Ship
Typical cloudy skies but beautiful day
Click on the photo to look for Wally. ;o)



I certainly hope the adults got the youngsters all rounded up after the field trip was over. It looks like they were having a good time and probably didn't want to leave.

For other SWF posts,
see Tom's new SkyWatch site here.

No, this is not an official 'Wally' print. It just reminded me of that with all of the blue shirts looking alike and one lone red shirt standing off by himself.

The sky is beautiful. The ship skeleton is intriguing. Waldo is alone on the far right, looking at a sea shell and dreaming of pirates.

Love it!

great shot of your sky and beach :D

My SWF : The gateway to Heaven Thanks

ArneA said...

and the ship´s name?
cannot be Waldo?

Dewdrop said...

lol. I couldn't find Waldo... I noticed that this week. Mr. Linky was delayed and as soon as he was up there, kaplow! Tons of links.

fishing guy said...

Troy: I couldn't find Waldo, but the scenery is great for SWF.

Julie said...

Scavenging along a beach is a terrific excursion. The clouds in your photo just seem to keep rolling in. The boys look like ants around a dead caterpillar.

Mrs. Darcy said...

In Norway Waldo is called Willy. The books are very popular in my library :)!
Lovely picture!

Petunia said...

Love the title and the shot!
Well done!

It would be so cool to investigate the wrecked ship! What kid wouldn't want to be a part of such a class trip?

rachel said...

the contrast in this photo is just amazing! you really have some nice work! HAPPY SWF! (:

Kelly said...

The sky and beach are great! Looks very Hot!

dlyn said...

Great SWF shot - I would love to go and see that.

and for what it's worth, I don't have moderation or word veri turned on and I rarely get a spam post.

bobbie said...

Looks like fun. Very nice shot.

Carletta said...

God Bless those teachers! I never had to go on a field trip near the water - thank goodness.
Beautiful photo!

Tommy V said...

Very cool photo. I the old ship makes it special. I would like to see that.

Torsdag said...

This can be my fist top ten this week, like a scene from a futuristic story, yes I like it

Where was Waldo? The naughty boy! What a lot to see in this SkyWatch! It is a great photo! Love the ship's skeleton.

Have a wonderful weekend of beautiful skies!

Rose said...

Wow, fantastic picture...

Katney said...

We had a "Where's Waldo?" day at school this last year. Everyone wore stripes and two facultymembers were designated as official Waldos. Those students who figured out who was Waldo got to be the participants in the games of the afternoon. It was a lot of fun.

Leora said...

Last time I tried a 'Where's so and so' in a photo, the answer was, there wasn't any so and so! And I wracked my eyes looking. So, I'll just enjoy the boat and the beach.

CherryPie said...

Wow! I love this photo :-)

Ellyn said...

Great picture. Loved it. I love sky and water together.

~~Randi~~ said...

It think this photo looks like a painting - beautiful!

Carver said...

That's a beautiful sky and beach. It is often hard to get a group of children to leave when they are having fun.

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Wow! Looks like a paint:)

Jules said...

Wally is very popular in PNG but the kids here don't wear shirts very often so it would be hard to find him !!!!

Kathiesbirds said...

Troy, interesting as always, this one tells a story and you have made it more fun by envoking a children's book! That sand looks like I want to wiggle my toes in it! What a bunch of pirates scavenging on the beach!

CaBaCuRl said...

Great picture....shows so much.

Photo Cache said...

I wanna be here today. What a beautiful spot on earth.

babooshka said...

Wonderful scene, and yes what a class trip that would be.

chanpheng said...

Very interesting shot. How long has that wreck been sitting there?

My SWF is over here. Hope you enjoy the views from my part of the world!

Donna said...

Geez! How lovely, fellow Texan!! Wish I was IN the water!!lolol...happy night!

Luiz Ramos said...

Good post. Great shot.
But where were (Wally)you both?

Brenda said...

I see two guys with red shirts, one in a group and one over to the right by himself. It's a great photo!

Bob Johnson said...

Cool shot, love the clouds and the colors, can't find Wally, when I blew up the image got too pixelated,:(

alicesg said...

Fantastic. I enlarged and saw how beautiful the beach and the sea was with a lovely sky too. The ship might have been shipwrecked. Have a nice weekend.

Raven said...

Wow! Better class trips than I got to go on. Beautiful sky and interesting scene.

Tere {Blessings in Life} said...

Beautiful shots! Happy Sky Watch!

Fish Whisperer said...

Great shot of the sky beach and kids.
Have a great weekend.
Cheers

Lawstude said...

love the pic. vibrant colors. happy 08.08.08 day to you.

Isadora said...

The layers in this photo are utterly amazing: reflection, sand, water, wreck, sky, sky and sky

Louis la Vache said...

Neat shot! Dinosaur skeleton-like bones of a ship on the beach, great sky!

RuneE said...

The picture told a whole story, my Waldo escaped me. Maybe it is because I always loses things myself.

nice pic!!!

Ackworth Born said...

Don't know anything about Waldo (some cult character I presume!) but I do know a great beach-scape and this with those rolling clouds and the shipwreck does for me OK

Greyscale Territory said...

Such an unusual pic! Terrific colours!

Kerri said...

Oh, a lovely skywatch shot!

B. Roan said...

That is one amazing sky. I would enjoy a nice walk in the 'edge' of that water. Jaws you know! I hope you are surviving the heat. My friend in Dallas said it got up to 106 actual temperature. That brought back some unpleasant memories, especially the summer of 1980. Makes me wonder why I complain when it hits 90 here in middle of nowhere Illinois! I've only been gone 3 years. How soon we forget!

The Texican said...

Great photo. Brings to mind the movie, "Man in the Wilderness." Pappy

Intriguing photo!

happy weekend!!

Michael Palmer said...

HDR? Nice shot!

Craver Vii said...

Alas, the Black Pearl will not be returning to Tortuga... not in THIS state of disrepair! "Drink-up me hearties-- yo-ho!"

The blue sky near the horizon beautifully accents the fluffy expanse of cottonny goodness above. Nice shot!

Larry D said...

Great photo! Is this near Seaside Oregon? I might have been there once long ago.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Great post... again..:O)

Neva said...

Certainly does look like a "wally" print!

storyteller said...

My sister's oldest boy LOVED the Where's Waldo books (he's going to be 29 in December) and we spent many happy hours seeking the fellow. Interesting cloudy day at the beach … lots of textures to this photograph! I participated at Sacred Ruminations ... sharing sunrise on a cloudy day.
Hugs and blessings,

Sherry said...

I think I saw Wally. :) This is a great photo, love all the layers of light and color, and especially the way the blue is reflected in the water. The clouds look like waves in the sky.

willow said...

Oh, my, I am your 70th commenter! Hope I don't get completely lost in the suffle here. I actually thought of this shipwreck when I posted yesterday on the ancient chariot. I was also very intrigued by this ship just washing up on the Oregon shore like it did. I would have loved to have run my hands over the mellow old beams.

I enjoyed your comments over at Willow Manor today very much. Pop in for a cup of tea again very soon!

Willow x o

SandyCarlson said...

What a day at the beach. My old eyes can't see him!

Berit said...

Beautiful photo!!!

willow said...

I'm back again to tell you how much I enjoyed THB's "Boom Town" and the historical info behind the painting! Thanks for giving me the link! :)
