The Skies Today

The sky beckoned to me twice today. Midday and then again this evening.

Midday skies, just ominous looking.









This evening, the sunset was just so colorful and after a grey day a little color was like eye candy.

These were taken toward the sun.


These were on the other side of the house, away from the sunset.

This orange and red drew me outside this evening. I miss the southern falls.The full color show was just a favorite of mine. I used to look at Alaskan falls half empty and only see the brief yellow birch leaves in the fall and sigh and miss the color show. But for the color show here you have to look down at the ground, and when you do you see red.



  1. So beautiful. I need to change my view with the change of seasons. I enjoy fall just not the shorter days. But I need to look for the good in it all. Looking at the glass half full. :-)

  2. Hi Melissa, Sorry I've been a bit out of commission lately, but I'm trying to get back to visiting. Beautiful AK. We don't have a lot of fall color near our place either -- mostly pines & birch too, but I do love our drive to church with lots of colorful maples. We had a rather odd sky Friday with one big gray cloud over our town surrounded by blue sky. The cloud rained huge drops upon us - just slow, big kerplops and then a few pieces of pea-sized hail, but it wasn't even storming -- very odd. Heavy frost this morning though. Have a lovely fall. Usually I hate seeing summer leave, but after this past very hot year, it's a welcome relief. :)
