The . . . Skies . . . have it . . .

Hi, all!  Well, by now you know how I love the sky.  I love sunsets, sunrises, clouds, clear blue skies, the sun, the moon, the stars.  I should have been an astrologist, only I'm probably not that smart.  But, I do have a passion for taking photos of them all.  Through the years you have seen me post lots and lots of sunsets, because here in Idaho we have gorgeous sunsets.  So, I thought I would just share some of last years photos that I did not post.  

I lied, this was the sunset tonight, I just had to post it!





I'm so excited that the fire in the sky has returned.  I will most likely be spending many, many evenings looking, westward.

When we are driving, I love to look at the clouds.  I don't know if it's my sunglasses with UV protection or the windshields UV protection, but I always catch rainbows playing with the clouds. And fortunately, my camera sees it as well.

And, for your listening pleasure while you look at my rainbows . . . 






This one looks like a little angel, kissing the sun.


And, if you look very closely, right above the sliver of moon, you will see a star . . . so, the next time you find yourself gazing up at a brilliantly lit night sky, remember that the One who hung those bright lights calls you to shine as beacons of hope and life for all those around you.

Goodnight . . .

XOXO,

Barb

  4. Barb,
    Love your photos of the Iridescent clouds! I have never had the opportunity to see them for myself but my sister sent me some pictures of some that she saw a few years back. And now, I get to see yours....so beautiful. Maybe someday I will get to see this beautiful creation for myself.

  5. Awesome pictures! Back when I used to drive my son to school, I would take tons of sunrise pictures because each morning was so beautiful.

  10. Hey Barb....gosh, it has been a long time since I have visited. Life seems to be keeping me busy. Glad I had the opportunity to stop by here today. I love all of your gorgeous sky photos. Our Airman grandson is studying weather and he has been teaching me all about the colors of the sunsets and about the different kinds of clouds. You captured some beautiful shots with the rainbows colors surrounding the clouds. Hope your weekend is treating you with a whole lot of relaxing moments... hugs

  11. Oh my dear friend, I love these photos. The sun does look like it is being kissed by an angel. I loved the colors in the cloud. Your sunsets are beautiful. I need to sometimes actually go out and look at our sunsets more often. We need to stop and smell the roses. Your photos at least give me a moment of sweet reflection. How I love our Heavenly Father's creations; I just need to enjoy them more. Miss and love you much! Sending big hugs your way~
