Above the clouds

Most days I look up to admire clouds, find interesting shapes, and enjoy sunrise and sunset.

These photos were taken from the window of the plane. The first one looks like a bear climbing out of the water (clouds) and the others were just ones I found interesting.

The second and last pictures are of the sun from different angles and points of sunset.

Magical skies

Eyes flicker open

Will the morning colors be putting on a show?

All day I glance skyward

at the wisps

at the billowing puffs

at the myriad of shapes

always putting on a show.

Setting my imagination free.

And then, evening colors.

Will they bring another dazzling display?

Brainard Lake at Sunset

As the weekend winds down, those of us who want to squeeze the last drops of fun from it enjoy the sunset as we look for moose. Tonight there were none, but the magnificent sky, wildflowers, and a lone duck in the lake were enough.

Lucerne Sunset

This is a “throwback” from three years ago as it came up in my Facebook memories. There is beauty everywhere you look in Lucerne. But the magical moments as the sun sets reflecting on the water is otherworldly. Combined with the leafless trees and the purple gardens, this is a sunset I will always remember.

Sunset

My last night on the gulf coast of Florida provided a magnificent sunset. Looking forward to waking up to my spectacular sunrise in the mountains tomorrow.

Mother Nature is a bit of a show off. 😎☀️🌴

Views over Sarasota

These photos were taken from the Westin rooftop in Sarasota, Florida. There is a 360 view. The rooftop has a great pool on one side and a bar with a variety of seating options on the other 3 sides as you walk around. It was a lovely evening as day faded into night. No matter the lighting, it is a beautiful view.

Fishing at Sunset

Just as the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico, the pelicans glide over the water near the shore. Back and forth they fly, as they swoop like an acrobat when they spot fish below. With precise skill, diving when they spot fish below. I’m not sure if they enjoy their dinner as much as I enjoy watching them. As they sky darkens, they fly away from the beach, returning the next morning for “the catch of the day.”
