Looking Up

"The sky is the part of creation in which nature has done for the sake of pleasing man. "John Ruskin

Here are a few of my favorite sky pictures from the photo file. When the snow is dirty and gray, and mud has replaced ice in the driveway, there is always hope of finding beauty by looking up. Even if the skies are gray, there is a sense of calm as the gray envelopes you. Neutral shades have a beauty also.


  1. Does it seem at this moment, that that last shot is something out of a movie, something that you and I might have lived once, but not recently?

  2. "neutral shades have beauty also"

    so true. nature, at least, seems to have mastered that art...

  3. What beautiful pictures! I'm enjoying browsing around your blog. Thank you for stopping by My Own Velvet Room. Nice to hear that you recognized the title of that wonderful book!
