Looking To The Sky

Oh the many lovely sights I see, just by looking to the sky! 
Sometimes we look all around us and see the turmoil and trouble on this earth, but when we look up we can see beauty, put there by our loving God and it costs us nothing to see it.

The scene below, was somewhere just inside the Manitoba border, on my way home from Alberta. A roadside stop, to refresh and move around a little, also gave me a chance for some pictures.


Evening often brings with it a lovely sunset.A few clouds usually add to the beauty.


I never get tired of seeing the colors of the sunset.They can range from the softest pinks and lavenders to brilliant orange and fiery reds.


The colors often intensify just as the sun sets.


Not all beauty is seen in the sky.This lone tree, near the Pembina Valley,just begs to be photographed in various seasons and light. I like the contrasting yellow of the Canola field in this shot.Yes,the black spot was a bird flying through just as I pushed the shutter button.


Something to Think About:
Knowing the future is uncertain; 
knowing the One who holds 
the future is a sure thing.

    This is so true:

  2. Beautiful sky pictures. I look to the sky for changing weather and sometimes I'm right, sometimes not. It's endlessly fascinating. Diane

  4. Gorgeous sky shots...I can never get enough because every sky is different than the next. The clouds here recently have been stunning even though some were storm clouds.

  5. Those canola fields certainly do enhance a photo. That last shot of the tree is beautiful, as are the sunset shots and the image from the rest stop. You have a good eye.

  8. Great post, Ruth... I too enjoy looking at the sky and taking sky pictures. I love it especially when it is full of COLORS....

    I have that problem when we hike... I am so afraid of falling --that I am continually looking down.... I guess that is why we stop so often --so that I can look UP and get that good sky picture.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
