The Sky

I was out with a friend from work the other day and it was beautiful outside. It was sunny, there was a cool breeze, and we were standing under this beautiful tree. So of course we had to take a picture, to capture and share this gorgeousness that was nature. And while doing so she told me how she kinds has this thing about the sky. She said that in almost all of her pictures, she tries to get the sky in there somewhere because she is so in love with it.

It made me think about how I felt about the sky myself. Now, while I don't have the affinity for capturing it as much, I realized that I do love it too. Every time Nafew and I go out, and when he asks me where I want to go, I tell him I don't care as long as it has a good view. I love watching the horizon, where the sea and the sky meet. I could just sit there staring forever. If I was as good a photographer as most people appear to be these days, or if I had an amazing camera to capture those moments with, I'd probably have a lot of pictures of the sky too.

I came home that day and went through my sorry excuse for an Instagram account and noticed I actually do have my fair share of pictures that captured the sky. So I'm posting the few passable ones with you guys in hopes that there are more people out there that think like my friend and I.

Even when it is frightening, it's still stunning!

One other thing that makes me extremely happy is the moon. regardless of how small it is, or the mood I am in when I see it, it never fails to cheer me up. I have tried to capture the beauty of the moon several times but it always comes out horrible so I've stopped trying. I'd rather enjoy watching it than trying to photograph it and failing.

What's YOUR favorite thing about nature?
