Sunshine to Clouds

Over the years I have gathered a lot of pictures. I keep them, because for one reason or the other I like them. When I share these pictures, I am trusting that someone else will like them as well.

This tree has been photographed at many different times and seasons. I love it's shape and that it stands alone, away from the competition. When you closely, it is actually a cluster of three trunks, but working together, they form one beautiful tree.


It comes as no surprise to any of my followers that I love watching the sky. It is an ever changing display. Some days the sunset is amazing and on some days there is other beauty.

I was out there hoping for a spectacular sunset, instead what happened is that I got spectacular cloud scenes.


These clouds were just amazing. Yes, they looked angry, but did not deliver any storms.

 As the sun was setting, the clouds just got a darker, more defined look to them. I was loving every minute of this.

Something To Think About:
Your faith in God today is your lifeline to His heartbeat.
Faith is the hand that reaches up and takes hold of God’s promises 
and gathers in the spiritual treasures that are found in Christ.
Faith sees the sunshine of God’s face,even when there are dark clouds all around.

Ruth, your sky photos are not only gorgeous but powerful. As I am writing this we are have a wicked thunderstorm! The thunder is booming and the lightning is flashing. It's dark, windy and pouring down rain. I must go and check on Mom, she is afraid of them-insists on closing the blinds and unplugging everything in the house.

Spectacular as always!!
You really do have an amazing eye and talent with your camera.
Where you live certainly has some awesome cloud coverage.
That tree with three trunks makes me think of God~ Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three in one working together in our lives.

Thank you for sharing your beauty with us,I never tire of my visits here with you. :-)

Beautiful wise words to think about.

Happy day to you~
