Interesting Skies

We've had a variety of interesting skies over the past few weeks.

This is a beautiful sunny afternoon, looking over the valley toward Old Baldy.

And then there are the rare mornings I'm out of bed (briefly) at 5.30 for the sunrise.

And yes, the 'Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning' came true - it rained all afternoon.

More recently we had a sunrise like this.  I think it's the smoke from Saskatchewan's forest fires.

And at times we have too many days like this.

But they're balanced by days like this.

And then one night I tried to catch the Northern Lights.  We never did see them, but I caught this neat sky shot that I was quite pleased with.  I think I'll be trying more of this!

  1. Awesome sky shots. You're lucky that you have some open spots and not like in a city where you get more houses than sky.

  3. Pretty impressive stuff. Loved the first one in particular. If I get a good skyshot, it's accidental.

  4. Your pictures are amazing! These sky picture brought me a great deal of encouragement! Thank you for your kind words on my blog and for sharing a bit of your story. I found the post about William and my breaks for you and your family. Hopefully we can encourage each other across the miles in the days to come!
