The sky is one of my favorite photography subjects. I try to photograph every beautiful sunset I see, and I also try to capture unusual cloud formations at any time of day.
I see the sky as God’s canvas. Throughout each day he paints it anew, adding some very special touches when the sun rises and sets. Clouds chase each other around the horizon and reflect gorgeous colors at the beginning and end of each day. The weather changes the appearance of the sky during the day, too, as do the many jets that leave contrails. I try to capture it all as I have opportunity.
When I saw that the theme for this week’s #justforfun#1 challenge was the sky, I had to participate. I learned of this theme from Kim Johnson in her post describing the challenge. This is my contribution for Weeks 1 and 2.
I took this photo on the way home from a business trip to our former home in Newbury Park, California. As we drove north on the 101 Freeway, I could not help but notice that the sunset would be an especially memorable one. So I made my husband pull off the freeway in Ventura and head for the beach. It was hard to find a parking place, but I got to the beach just in time to capture the sun saying goodnight.
