Perfectly Framed Sky

 


It poured rain here early yesterday morning. After work, I went to Walmart because gas was cheaper there than anywhere else in town. Some of their trees are starting to bloom so I drove down the parking lot, parked with these trees in front of me to get the clouds building in the lower background. At first the dark clouds reminded me of mountains. Then I saw this view in my camera and knew I had a perfectly framed sky. I know they are a bit on the dark side, but I like them that way. I did not lighten them up. I also stopped to take pictures of flowering wisteria which makes the area look like it should be named Wisteria Lane. Now those shots I did lighten up, but it made them look washed out. They had a bit of sky in them, but I felt this was one of my best shots this week.

Once I loaded the picture, the clouds remind me of waves on the beach.

I love how you have framed the sky with the trees - looks great.

Because "my" mountain has been covered in snowy clouds all day (even though our flowering trees look like yours), I thought "mountain" when I saw your perfectly framed photo.It IS, and also beautiful.

I like what you said R & J... "a thinking sky". I was happy to be there too. Thanks, Sandy. Yes, timing is everything. I may be late but I see to have good time where photography is concerned - thank goodness. Thanks, Raven. I loved how I framed the sky also. Glad you could see "the mountain" also, Louise. Thanks. Yes, Paulie, I lucked out on this shot. I'll drop by shortly. Hi Nancie! Great to "hear" from you! You are very welcome for the prayers & encouragements. I understand perfectly that you are not able to blog regularly but I am tickled when you can visit me and comment. Just seeing your name, makes me smile and go, "It's Nancie!" Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. You remain in mine also. I hope & pray you find energy so you won't be fatiqued. Pacing yourself is good thing. A lesson we probably all could learn from you. Take good care of yourself. I hope you have great weekend too. Thank you all for stopping by & commenting.
