Simple Beauty

I continue into this new year with pictures from a warmer season.
Today I will feature a couple of sky scenes and some spring foliage.

I enjoy watching the ever changing sky. It may be grey and overcast, as it is today, or it may have some beautiful clouds as in this picture.

Thunderstorms may be looming on the horizon, but they are as gorgeous as can be.Those massive clouds hold a special attraction to me.I am already anticipating scenes like this which I hope to capture this coming summer.


From the massive thunderheads to the intricate detail of that early spring growth. As the new leaves unfurl, they carry such delicate beauty. The colors are fresh and new.


Hope, expectation and promise, are all wrapped up in these new leaves.


As I noted before, the colors are vibrant and fresh in that new growth. Just looking at these images makes me long for spring and those first signs of new life.

Closing Thought:
Praise God! Praise You, Lord, for the wonder of the earth You created.

  7. our world is indeed wondrous... and my favorite part of the wonder, is like your first photo. trees against blue and white sky.. to me nothing is more beautiful, not even mountains or water. at times I find I hard to drive when the trees are so beautiful against the sky... the new growth is so pretty and the last one is gorgeous
