Big Skies

These are some of my favorite images because the majority of the picture is sky, especially the ones taken in Scandinavia.  That’s one of the things I was struck by when we were over there…..the skies seemed more immence than usual!  You couldn’t help but fill most of the frame with it. When the sun permeates the clouds or reflects off of them amazing things can happen.  One of the best times to see wonderfully colorful skies are in the fleeting minutes just before and after the sun rises and sets. Be warned; however, it doesn’t last long, so be prepared!  I hope you enjoy looking….click on each image to view them larger.  Don’t forget as you’re hustling about your busy lives to slow down and look up once in awhile…you just might see a big beautiful sky you might otherwise have missed!   To receive an e-mail notification of my posts you can subscribe by entering your e-mail address on the Home page of my website.  Have a good week.
