Foto Story # 75-- Beautiful Skies

Thanks to a high schooler who also has an early morning religious class, seminary, I have been forced... er, blessed with the opportunity of being up before the sun rises. Tuesday morning dawned in radiant splendor! I could not believe how bright and beautiful the colors were. It is difficult to get him to class on time when I really just wanted to have him pull over so I get out and compose a shot or 20! The morning sky changes SO much faster than the evening sky. The bright colors quickly fade and are gone in a matter of seconds.


That same evening the setting sun put on its own display of colors. Evening sky usually gets more colorful as the minutes pass and the challenge is not the loss of color but the loss of light in which to capture the range of colors that have appeared.

May we each take a moment to enjoy the sky whether you are a morning or an evening sky the beauty painted there is calming and inviting.

How very pretty and what a blessing for you. It’s such a treat playing this meme with you every week. I have a little something for you today.

Great photo story! Actually brought tears to my eyes. My grandma's famous saying over the years is to 'always look at the sky, clouds, and sunset'...and I always do. :)
Gorgeous pictures!

So beautiful. So soothing and a nice reminder that there are so many things bigger than we are...and so many constants no matter what's going on in our own lives.

Fabulous pictures.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my hotel room and the array of pillows! It was a Holiday Inn but a fairly new one. I do appreciate a pretty bed and nice linens and his place had them to spare!!

We had a wonderful time in Florida and managed to get out just ahead of Hurricane Ida! Stop by again when you can. Blessings.

Honey Mommy said...

That first photo is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!!

I am usually up before the sun, but I rarely go outside! Perhaps I should!

I love that last statement: May we take each moment.... Too many moments speed by when we're too busy, or too distracted, or too whatever. We need to slow down and just BE.

Thanks for the reminder! beautiful photos - thanks for sharing!
