What fascinated me today was the sky. On the way home from work in the west was a block of grisly gray from high in the sky to the ground. On the east was a dust devil. That just seemed wrong, but what was really wrong was that I didn’t have my camera. So I got it out when I came home.
Fortunately for me, the sky stayed diverse long enough for me to get tired of taking pictures.
By the way you don’t want to plant eucalyptus trees too near your pool. They don’t clean up after themselves. I faced east as I took these first two pictures. Watch when I turn about 135 degrees.
Gray adds depth and interest to the sky, maybe even to one’s life if you believe the philosophers. As a hair color, and according to my fashion expert and co-worker, Glenn, gray should not be an option in my wardrobe either. But it looks nice if the sky is wearing a little of it – in places.
What made this evening particularly interesting was the next turn. Looking straight south you could almost imagine yourself in another world.
You should neither spit into the wind nor take pictures into the sun. But in the spirit of providing you all with an accurate recording today’s sky display, I did it anyway. If you live in the midwest or east, these skyscapes may not seem spectacular to you. But in this area if you have something other than dusky,cloudless, lifeless blue, you grab your camera and point up.
