I haven't been posting much on Skywatch Friday lately, but this single meme has changed the way I look at the sky--and increased exponentially the amount of time I spend paying attention to what's going on above me. I couldn't possibly be more enthusiastic about the team and its efforts--thanks, as always.
A couple of weeks ago, when the weather was rather "interesting" (read nasty and brutish), I looked out my window at a golden evening, with apricot-colored light glowing against a solid background of cloud. The cloud cover persisted for the next twenty four hours, but began to break up just as it started getting dark.
I love the bare branches of trees against the sky anyway, but the changes from evening to evening are worth watching.
The sun broke through enough for a sunset--albeit obscured somewhat by bare pecan trees.
The opening shot reminds me a (very) little of Caspar David Friedrich's paintings evoking the sublime, like this one, Abbey in an Oak Forest:
That's it for now; Thanksgiving breads are in the oven and I've got to keep an eye on them. My daughter's cooking this year, and all I have to do is make the dinner rolls. Talk about sublime!
