I realized a bit ago that I have for too long taken the sky for granted. When I started becoming more interested in shooting my world, I started to really take a look at what I saw. What I saw, what I see often amazes me. What a wonderful view the sky has to offer us. From the clear blue day to the dark stormy nights, she dresses herself in breathtaking wardrobes. Essentially, I started looking up and paying attention. Try it sometime.

Thanks jcalberta. 🙂
I’m with you on this one. Great photos.
Thank you Julie. 🙂
I often think that skies are the most important part of a photo. No matter how much is shown in the photograph, the sky lights the scene.
I agree 110%

I love the photos.
And thank you for liking my poem “Itchy”
You are welcome Yoshiko.
The New Jersey sunset photo is beautiful. Now more than ever. Beautiful post as well.
Yeah – looking up now and then is a wonderful thing. Thanks for taking a peek at my skies. Yours are beauties.
The pictures of the sky, shows a natural beauty, with impressive appearance.
Nice looking pics.
Love the sky photos.
Thank you Igg.
Thank you for the like of my post “Last Rose on the Block”.
We take so many things for granted. Thanks for remembering the sky for all of us! For so long I’ve mused at how we try to paint the sky, but the real deal is the real deal! Keep on looking up!
Being aware of surroundings opens up new pathways to our minds and hearts.
I love the light, the life – the love of life – thanks 🙂
Thanks so much. Glad you like those.
I’m all about sky. Gotta have some essence pf blue in my personal vista to keep my happy going. Thanks for stop bys with my NaNo.
Be-uit- ti- ful. 🙂 And thanks for the like.
Welcome Red Toenails & thanks.
Well let’s have a world sky day then! No seriously, not many people do appreciate it enough. Once I taught a meteorology class in H.S. The atmosphere is one wild place! I’ve seen on some photo webinars a lot of people who ask where they can download sky images (for compositing into their boring sky pictures). I’m amazed at this. Why wouldn’t you want to shoot your own skies? Nice post.
Thanks so much. Glad you like it and agree why wouldn’t one want to shoot their own skies?
Come to the dark side Seth, the night sky awaits http://www.twanight.org/newTWAN/index.asp.
A spectacularly picturesque part of the world you inhabit … !
Thanks! 🙂 Glad you like the photos.
Fabulous light and colour
I actually lived in Dayton for almost 25 years, but I grew up in Seattle, and one of the things I notice wherever I am is how different the cloud formations can be. Great photos! The light is beautiful.
Thanks color musing! 🙂
Hi Seth – Thank you for stopping by my blog. Love the sky series. I also like the cemetery scenes. I happen to like to wander through them, read the headstones, imagine the stories.
Love these sky shots, Seth. What a gorgeous array of colours.
Hi Seth, thanks for tuning in again! It’s a pleasure to have you as a reader. I, too, am a huge fan of skywatching. I believe it is excellent food for the soul. At one point, while I was living in NYC, I remember sitting in a cab heading south toward downtown. Something possessed me too look up! Massive, Gi-normous cumulous clouds spread throughout clear skies… like white giants marching across to the west. 🙂 I realized then, that I forgot about the sky and had been looking down too much. Now I look everywhere! Lolll. Cheers! Thanks again.
Thanks Felicia. I am glad I’m not the only who notices the beauty of the sky!
Oh you’re definately not! But even if you were… then that beauty would be all yours!! Cheers.
Amazing! Thank you for sharing!
Your photography is amazing, Crystal clear and startling beautiful.
Thanks heartafire! Glad you like.
Thanks so much ltownsdin.
I like the above photos. I’m someone who loves to see scenery. 😀
Thanks so much Yoshiko.
You are welcome, Seth.
Nice. I especially like shots 2 and 5.
Long ago, I had a photography class in college. But my expose on clouds was a failure, I just couldn’t get them to do what I wanted. 🙂 Very nice photos.
Since the regular “like” doesn’t seem to work, let me just tell you here: excellent photos. I like them a lot.
Best regards from southern Texas,

Our powerful sky’
Inspires artists and poets,
Ruins outdoor parties,
Provides cover for romance and crime, and
Helps us continue to breathe.
I vote that we keep it!
Nice jackcurtis. Thanks.

Love your skies Seth ! Looking upwards is more often than not rewarded in some way or other … maybe not quite what we want every time, but with a camera at the ready there’s plenty of chances to capture the essence of theday day .
Thanks Poppytump. I agree.
I grew up on the plains of New Mexico, where the sky really does reach out and touch the land! I love those big wide open skies! Good pics!
Thx little birdie.
The untitle one with the fishing lure white clouds is very nice.
Thanks! Glad you like that one. 🙂 🙂
Gorgeous photos! I can’t resist a beautiful sky, either! (Or a cemetery, particularly an old one in Europe!) I especially love the painterly feel of your banner photo of the red barn.
Wow, super-duper amazing! Thanks for sharing!
This is such a lovely series! No taking anything for granted!
