Almost Wordless Wednesday: The Sky Is My Ocean

We don't always have the beautiful ocean outside our windows, but we do always have the sky. So sometimes the sky is my ocean. All photos taken this month just outside our front door looking east.

  1. Scrumptious, Robin! As I've observed before, I love the way your let the sky dominate the frame.
    Speaking of the sky as ocean, have you seen those NASA images of air currents carrying different things, like dust or smoke,moving all over the planet over time? I think you would appreciate them.

  2. Beautiful skies. I wonder how many of your neighbours were aware of the free show outside their windows.

    1. John-- It surprises me how most people never look up. I try to encourage the neighborhood kids to take a good long look around in all directions.

    2. Yes, I used to lead groups of walkers in the English countryside. Quite frequently I'd see dark clouds approaching and suggest that it might be an idea to put waterproofs on. "Why? Do you think it might rain?" someone would always ask.
      Speaking of looking up I looked this up because I thought it might amuse you both - A Haiku by John Cooper Clarke:
      To convey ones mood
      In seventeen syllables
      Is very diffic

  6. You do seem to have the most interesting skies. I love the idea that it is your ocean. I do miss the ocean here in the Ozarks and will try your method as a substitution. Thank you.

  9. With a little imagination Picture #3 looks like water to me. Enjoyed all. Thank you. I look up very often -- started as a kid with cloud shapes and then as a a middle-ager looking at birds and now entering my 60s I'm still birdwatching and sometimes look up just to help ease "the blues"of life. Glad you're encouraging the kids to look in all directions - for the beauty and for situational awareness. Kim in PA

    1. Kim-- Sometimes I wish I had a tower so I could look in all directions. The vastness of our beautiful planet and skies soothes in these anxious times, and yes "the blues" of life.

  10. I share your fascination with clouds and am fortunate to live in an area with a large hemisphere to enjoy them. This week I saw a rather unusual display. A long band of clouds that appeared as vertical stripes stretched across an otherwise blue sky. Beautiful!

    Your post about the visit with your Mom was so bittersweet. Our human condition. Best to you and Roger.
