Beautiful Skies

This autumn seem to be a boon for skywatching. The sky seems more vibrant and alive and expressive. The sunsets on the other hand appear to be more dramatic. Thus I find myself always shooting at the sky. Just yesterday while I was out on an errand the sky was very dramatic after a day of downpour I was devastated that I forgot to bring either a small camera or my phone and got nothing on me to capture the sky.

The following however I took while on the drive back after our mini vacation. The first image is blurry but I love it. All are straight out of the camera.

On November first I had my camera with me so I was able to capture the cloudscapes. Honestly, I can't remember why I was lugging my small camera around, but I am happy I did.

  8. Those are nice skies. And to answer your question on my blog, it is actually very late for a first snow for us; I've seen snow the first week in September at our house.

  10. Well i love most the last photos because of the towering junipers or is it cypress? They always remind me of temperate countries.

  11. I feel your devastation (for not having any camera at cruical moment) ;-). photos taken are nice, sunsets ( I also like the 'blurry' one), the one with power pole and birds and I just can't get enough of blue sky and white clouds.

  13. A fine variety in this series. I like the darker, skyline emphasizing pictures while the sky versions have their own special beauty.

  17. I always have my camera around with me now. It's not one of those big-ass cameras anyway so it's very easy to carry it with me anywhere I go. You never know what's in store for you when you go out. :)
