Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
~ Rabindranath Tagore
The morning before our winter storm of 02/19/12 was sunny and gorgeous. But that afternoon the clouds rolled in. I saw this "saucer" like cloud and just had to pull out my iPhone and snap it! You can see a bit of the sunburst that I caught too. I think this type of cloud is called a Lenticular cloud - which you can read more about - HERE
And if you missed the detailed SNOWFLAKE shots I captured during our Storm - you can see those - HEREand HERE
My friend Karen - aka Happy One - knitted this dishcloth and sent it to me as part of a give away she had on her blog. I LOVE it! I am actually using it as a coaster and it is sitting on my desk.
Karen is one of the kindest people I have met in blog land. She has a Daily blog - LIFE IS Good - and also a Snapshots blog. She took THIS sunrise pic when out walking and it just takes my breath away.
More snowflakes captured with my iPhone and Olloclip lens. I have to confess that watching these amazing crystals drop onto the windshield and take shape - and then develop into other shapes was quite a spiritual experience. I am in awe of our Creator and this amazing Universe.
When the evening sky is painted Crimson by the setting sun, And the birds all cease to twitter, Knowing that the day is done, It is then we like to ponder And, forgetting worldly strife, Realize that love and friendship Are the greatest things in life.
Another iPhone pic! (I added the text of course) This was a chance shot ... I looked up.... saw the plane that looked like it was "flying to the moon" and thought - that would make a great skywatch shot! Taken 02-03-12.
Love to see pics of the sky? Check out Skywatch Friday - HERE
These were taken from the river bank through the branches of the trees looking out onto the New River at Bisset Park. I thought it was funny that I captured one goose running away from the other one. Unfortunately all I captured was the open mouth of the goose that was doing the chasing - but I think you get the idea :)
What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.
