Summer Photo Fun: The Sky

8-7-12 045

Continuing with a nature theme this week in Summer Photo Fun, let’s look up and enjoy the sky. It’s vast, it’s beautiful, it’s another expression of our Creator God. I’d say it deserves its own post in Summer Photo Fun, huh?

Remember how in my post Adjusting Our Vision: Battling Dissatisfaction Godreminded me of what I have? Where I live I may not have the mountains outside my door or even a garden oasis or the beauty of the woodlands, but I do have the sky. And it is amazing.

So please enjoy these photos I’ve taken of the sky—and let’s praise its Creator together!

 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.” Psalm 19:1-3

    Beautiful pictures! God is an amazing painter isn’t He?

  2. I LOVE them all, but for some reason #4 is jumping out at me. As for the last photo . . . it kind of looks like an angel with outstretched arms to heaven.

  3. They are all really nice. I like the second one best, though. The last one is a swan.

  4. It’s a reindeer!

    I love the sky. It’s always changing. Great pics. I see a duck in the last one. How cute!

  6. I love looking up at the sky and have a particular affinity to the fluffy white clouds. I love every single one of these pictures….my favorite is probably the second one with the drama of light and dark. Feels symbolic. Beautiful.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed my photos, Emily. Love how your professional photographer’s eye noticed drama and symbolism. You make me think and see a little deeper. Thank you!

    Cheryl– Excited to discover your blog!

    My favorite photo is the one with the trees gently hugging the bottom of the photograph. Beautiful!

    Hi Cheryl,

    Wow, neat colors in those sky shots too. My favorites are the diagonal two different blues, and then the photo third from the bottom. It looks almost airbrushed in.

    Have a great week,

    Jennifer Dougan

    Great idea and photos, Cheryl! The first photo’s cloud formation reminded me of an airplane.
