Early Evening...Early Winter Sky......




....not today...we may well be having a huge winter storm....wind, rain and snow...these were taken a few days ago....
Here is Mother Nature's Abalone Shell....
.....iridescent mother-of pearl....
.....contradictions and dissociation of the blackness of her needles, her pointed fingers at Her Glory.
Opalescent beauty....
It is not her grandest sky, it is not a Biblical Sky with reds, oranges and flames of wonder.
It was a sky of such gentle beauty, simple loveliness.
A reminder that some beauty can be, and is quiet, gentle and unassuming.

Best

Very dreamy! We've been having the most magnificent sunsets here in Idaho lately. It really is a perfect ending to a busy day.

A perfect sky to look at - calm and soothe our heart and mind in the end of the day -
beautiful Ellen...
Here we've got rain every afternoon and I always like the smell of soil after that.

Gorgeous. I took photos of our sky here on Saturday before the snow came. Hope it's not too bad where you are! (and I haven't forgotten the scrapple--it may have to wait until January now, I'm afraid...)

That's my favorite type of sky. Your pictures are lovely. We only seem to get that type in December.
