My plant babies are sitting in the back garden looking at me with those questioning plant eyes "Why haven't you tucked us into our beds yet ?" .. I keep promising that I will get to you little ones as soon as possible .. as soon as I feel a bit brighter .. so please hang on for me ?

I have been preoccupied with sky pictures I have taken .. I am head over heels in love with the sky as it is .. but there were such amazing clouds these last few days of August .. I was totally smitten.
When I saw this bottom picture I thought for some insane reason I had gotten ink on my lens .. but these are actual birds I shot in the picture .. the lighting was just right to show off mysterious black images ?
I feel such intense emotions when the conditions are so dramatic (to me) .. I want to capture everything I see.
I also want to illustrate the whole picture with the closeup shots I find inside the clouds .. I leave tips of trees .. parts of roofs .. and long shots so you can see for yourself what I see in the sky as a whole ?
I'm sure the neighbors in the houses I use as a mark point .. well I'm sure they think I am totally insane on the deck in the wee hours of the morning shooting away .. but hey .. I can live with that for these pictures.
See how the sun reflects ?
The clear pure patches of blue are beautiful as a foil against the smokey smudged clouds.
Then in the middle of the smudged clouds that aura of illuminated light ... so beautiful !
Can you see where this came from ?
The soft soft smudges of light in behind the clouds are amazing .. were amazing to see I should say ? .. it was so quiet that morning .. it was like having a meditation moment .. cool and soothing.
I call this an "innocent sky" pure blue with white wafting clouds.
This last one reminded me of the Netherlands .. we lived there for four years and having seen so many Dutch paintings .. this sky is remarkably like the ones illustrated in the cold gray winter sky of Holland .. but beautiful all the same .. the small bird flying out from the clouds near the bottom, is a wonderful touch to it all.
That morning was one of my most favorite : )
