Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Though the day dawned sort of overcast, it's supposed to be another hot day here in North Texas.  103 today, 102 tomorrow, then a magical cool-front is supposed to sweep into the area and cool us down to the mid-nineties.  Ok, that's not cool, but I'll take it. 

When I've attended that one class of photography school, the teacher/owner was a transplant from Virginia.  She commented on our beautiful skies here (note to self, when searching about something beautiful in this mostly flat, mostly tree-less area, use skies!)  This got me to thinking of some sky shots I've taken over time.  Most are from our lake lot and others (like the one taken on the cruise) are not.   Some were actually taken with my IPhone camera, some with my Canon Elph, and others with my new Nikon D3100.

Anyway, in no particular order, here they are.

These were a particularly spectacular sunset out at the lake.

Now these below were taken with my cell phone camera (thus the lack of true clarity), but the clouds and the colors are still amazing.

Now these (taken with my digital Elph, I think) were a lovely spring sky at the lake.

And this is dusk at the lake, one of my favorite shots because of the deep blue colors.

Storm clouds gathering in the East, again at the lake.

And another shot near dusk.

And this - another sunset/dusk picture.  Look at those colors!

Aren't they amazing!  You could almost taste them!

Peaceful and tranquil, a crane stands in the water  near sunset

More sunset skies.

Can you spot a theme here?  Lake=sunset=sky?  Cuz I'm asleep at sunrise, that's why!

And I'll end with these.  I know I posted them before, but this is sunset somewhere out in the Gulf of Mexico, on our way back to Galveston from Cozumel.  Gorgeous, truly gorgeous.

There's nothing like a Texas sky. Beautiful.
