Clouds

It is no secret that I love watching the sky.I find so much beauty by simply turning my eyes to look to the sky. We don't need to travel far to see the beauty in the sky.
As I do slide shows in various places,I am always encouraging people to look to the sky for a never ending source of beauty.


Cloud patterns change constantly,so one has to be quick to capture the moment.


A setting sun,water and clouds,combine to make a lovely scene. Some people go to the ocean to see sunsets,and I am sure that would be spectacular,but since I don't readily have that option even a small marshy area will do.


As the sun tries to peek through a small opening in the clouds,the rays burst forth.whenever the sun is shining,the sunbeams are around,but we don't see them unless there are some clouds.


As I was watching the sky,waiting for that perfect sunset scene,I noticed this opening in the clouds.
I loved it and was so happy to be at the right place to capture this moment. 


The perfect sunset I was waiting for did appear.The sky was dotted with just enough clouds and the colours were amazing.


I got many pictures that evening and went back home rejoicing. Not every photography outing turns out this good,but this was a winner in my eyes.

The words on my heart that evening were:
Oh Lord my God how great Thou art!

  15. Totally agree, Ruth - and without clouds, sunsets just wouldn't be as colourful or dramatic. Love the marsh shot above all.
