Friday Finds

Fall has arrived and bringing with it many changes: the daylight hours are shorter, the air is becoming slightly cooler, the leaves are changing colors, the squirrels are storing food, and the birds are flying south. Of all the changes that fall brings, I find myself most amazed by the skies.

The atmospheric changes are creating the most gorgeous skies of blue. When a few white puffy clouds are added it's breathtaking. I find that every time I go outside I step off the porch and look up. Sometimes I find shapes in the clouds. In the image below do you see a blue heart in the small cloud near the center. 

It isn't any wonder that my favorite color is blue. 

I read that the color blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. I agree, all it takes is one look at the blue skies and I feel a sense of peace.

My wish for you is found in the words of Ella Fitzgerald...

Blue Skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see

  1. Cathy I clicked on this link several times yesterday just waiting for it to go live so I could tell you how awesome these cloud images are. I love clouds.

  2. Hi Cathy ... oh those deep blue skies and puffy white clouds ... amazing! Hope you have a "blue sky" kinda weekend!

  3. Wow, great clouds! Love that color spectrum in the clouds of your second image. Stunning!

  4. Fabulous clouds, every one, but I agree with Carol Hart, that second one is very special. What a great phenomenon to capture!

  5. Breathtaking shots, Cathy and what a deep blue sky! My favourites are the second one, surreal beauty, and the last one which looks like something extraterrestrial!

  6. I love these sky pix, Cathy! There is something so soothing about looking at blue sky. Happy blue sky weekend!

  7. Wow! Just wow! You've had some amazing skies this week. Beautiful.

  8. The sky is blue, the clouds are soft and white, so lovely combinations!

  9. Happy, happy blue skies! Nothing lifts the spirits in the same way. Love that unusual rectangular rainbow, caught in the middle of that cloud. Beautiful!

  10. Fantastic sky captures. I love blue skies too and more so when they have a few clouds in them. Loved the little heart and the rainbow in the clouds.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
