Sky Photo Project ~ May 19, 2017

Three picture collage, each with blue sky and clouds.

For my Sky Photo Project, I’ve mostly been taking one picture a day.

This past Friday, as I was walking home from the train, I took a picture. I noticed the clouds and light looked different even just a few feet away. So I took a couple more pictures — all within five minutes.

Nothing earth shattering. Just some blue sky and clouds. But it made me happy.

Sky Photo Project on Instagram

Collage with several pictures of blue skies with clouds.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I love taking pictures of the sky and tops of trees.

Even though the sky and trees are the same thing, they are never the same thing.

Especially the sky. There are so many variables. The amount of sunlight or moonlight. The shade of blue. The types of clouds.

I never get bored, because the pictures are always different. In fact, I get more fascinated the more pictures I take. It made me wonder.

How many types of sky can there be? What would it look like to take a bunch of pictures over time and compare? So about a month ago I started the #ljskyproject on Instagram. Sort of like my Virgo Season Photo Project. I’m still noticing the details.

This project could go on for quite some time. Which is fine. Because so does the sky.

Pantone Color of the Year: Sunset After the Rainbow

Pantone Color of the Year 2016

The rainbow that I captured last week was gone within minutes. I kept taking pictures though. This is the picture after the rainbow as the sun was closer to setting. The trees were cropped out, so the focus is on the color of the sky. Sanura commented that the sky was the Pantone color of the year. She was right! I hadn’t even noticed.

Instead of one Pantone color of the year, there are two! Serenity and Rose Quartz are the colors for this year, according to the company that has set the “standard for color communication and inspiration since 1963.”

Looks like they pulled these colors straight from nature. I wholeheartedly approve!

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

St Patrick's Day Rainbow

Just a little while ago, I was getting ready to grab something to eat and saw this amazing light peeking through my window. Like magical shimmering.

So I grabbed my phone, put on my sneakers and dashed outside. I saw the light. Then I gasped. I saw this rainbow over the trees. Wow! I almost missed it.

Plus, it’s St. Patrick’s Day! Well, what do you know? I haven’t been able to capture a rainbow in years. Maybe it’s the luck of the Irish! Sure hope that pot o’ gold is coming my way next!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you who are celebrating!
