Sky Watch Friday

It's hard for me to keep my camera off the sky. Its splendor never fails to amaze me and I never tire of its kaleidoscope of color that changes from moment to moment.

Life itself is like that. Turn your back for an instant...and you miss something breathtaking, inspiring, lovely.

Turn your face to the day and meet - head-on - the beauty, the joy that awaits...

With your kind of outlook on life, I'm ashamed to complain about things. But your words were so inspiring that I looked outside at all the snow and drifts and saw it for the first time in quite a while in splender and beauty!

Thank you for the attitude change!

We have the same outlook on life, Lori. Beautiful colours in your shot - very Australian if I may say so!

The shades across your frame are fairly similar to my Sky Watch Friday shot from last week.

Hi,
A gorgeous photo.Yes, it's a great pity that sometimes we become so caught up in coping with what life can throw at us that we fail to see the beauty around us, which is very often in quite simple things.I remember standing at a bus stop once watching a spider spinning it's web, it was amazing! So fragile looking but so strong.Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera with me.

Your post echos how I feel exactly! Amazing that somebody else says the same thing as me. The sky is so beautiful and ever changing. You can look at it and just a few heart beats later it's gone.

Lovely sky shot :-)
