Skywatch Friday: Cloudscape



"Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down.  And this is all life really means."
                                                                                                    Robert Louis Stevenson

The skies around here have been unrelievedly gray lately, so when this beautiful cloudscape presented itself last week, I went a little crazy snapping pictures.  :)

For more wonderful skies from all over the globe, visit Skywatch Friday.

I don't blame you, it can be so monochrome for too long, too much of a good gray thing! I love this photo, especially the lower right corner, with the bands of color.

Yogi said...

Great photograph. I really liked how you had the sun at the lower right hand corner and just let it light up the rest of the photograph.

Gail said...

It's nice to have a good sunset. It's almost light enough when I get home from work to go out and do some shooting.
