"The sky is the daily bread of the eyes."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Winter is easily the best season to direct your gaze upward. You can expect vivid sunrises and sunsets, clear blue skies, impressive cloud formations, and crystal-clear twinkling stars at night. These are glimpses of beauty in the midst of a season generally considered to be bleak and unlovely (unless there is snow, of course!). As we approach winter, here are a few of my recent sky photos to inspire you to look up and appreciate the heavenly views:
