Lovely. If you hadn't said anything about the circles, I'd have assumed it was dirt on my computer screen.

It's a great photo and the sky is such a piercing blue! These round circles are known as lens flares caused By the sun... happens to me a lot! Sometimes they can make a photograph look quite nice! It doesn't look bad at all!

Beautiful! I still think the Flag is one of the most beautiful things to look and reflect on. The Flag against the blue sky is amazing!

The American flag always looks beautiful with a clear blue background.

Thank you for the reminder that Flag Day is Saturday. "Louis" will put one out over the balcony. It will probably attract flak from the denizens of the People's Republic of Berserkeley....funny how they've all got "Practice Tolerance" bumper stickers on their cars, but tolerance is the last thing they practice if you disagree with them.... End of mini-rant.

"Louis" being an early riser, caught San Francisco waking up. Louis attributes the camera shake to (A) it was still early enough that "Louis's" caffeine meter was not yet out of the red zone and (B) the lack of a tripod for a shot like this....

No doubt here the sky is really blue !
If we had a flag day over here that would look very poor, most of the people don't have a flag, I don't know anybody who has one, and it's the same in other European countries. Flags only show up when there are football (soccer) games then you can see them with the supporters of each country.

Oh that sky is so nice and blue! I love it when it looks that color. The flag gives this photo a perfect look. Nice shot!
Mine is up. Unfortunately the sky is not so lovely here in WNY this morning.
