Scintillating Sky.

Gone are the unrestricted views I once had at my disposition in the white house on the hill. I still recollect fondly the captivating light shows that from spring to autumn played out in front of my windows.

These days, wide planes surround my home and our house is nestled between others, hidden from view, lacking it as well.
However, despite these limitations - and to my surprise - the obstructed horizon can nevertheless offer subtle demonstrations of natural splendor.
Just like the other evening, when twilight enveloped our surroundings and the final rays of the setting sun illuminated the three dimensional clouds.

Camera in hand, I walked around the house, capturing the scintillating spring sky in every cardinal direction, reveling in this early "white night" sneak preview...

Beautiful sights indeed always await those who take the time to notice.

Hi, Dear,

the nature is always fantastic! You can be proud, that you are able to find so much satisfaction in watching all this.
Sometimes it's not easy for me to find the right words in English and I hope, you understand always, what I wanna say.
Those clouds are really a present of the sky...
Maybe you can make a poster of one of these pics and frame it.

Enjoy your weekend!
Love and kisses, Ines

You said it: Those who take the time.
I haven't always. Sometimes I run past a well known terrain and notice a hidden waterfall I didn't notice before. I am noticing trees blossoming this spring like I never did before. Maybe the endless winter made me appreciate more the spring.
Lovely pictures

Beautiful Skies, Zuzana Dear! It is good to find ways to appreciate the littlest things in life, isn't it? I've been finding the sweetest little wild flowers and plants to photograph and appreciating the fading light of evening.
Hugs to you,
