There is a routine to my days and generally it begins from the moment I open my eyes and look at the eastern sky from my caged balcony. I try to squeeze out my phone through the gaps and click the wondrous sky to my satisfaction. With the birds chirping, crows cawing, a gentle morning breeze caresses me. I soak in the wonder called sunrise and let the energy flow into me. My day begins and it’ll be an awesome one for sure, says my heart.
This morning was no different. But I stood in the balcony for a long time, gaping at the wonder high above. Here are the pictures, when the sky makes its statement and makes the people to look above and go wow at the nature that is bigger than anything else.
Have a wonderful day!
When the sky is the drawing sheet
Upon which the patterns are drawn…
Crayons were used for this
To create a different effect…
The crayons so white
On a blue sheet
Creates those white cloud patterns
By spreading the wax
With the thumb…
Isn’t it how this picture was created!?!
Many thanks to the dear person who sends me pictures of the cloud and sky, all the way from Scotland ❤
Watching the sky, looking for shapes in the clouds started as a mere pastime, which has turned into an obsession now a days.
Have you seen those cricket batsmen looking up to the sky as they enter the ground to bat ? They pray for a good innings score for them or for their team.
Whenever I sit in the car heading out to work, I also look up to the sky, to my front, side, back, actually all possibilities. But my only reason for looking is to catch a glimpse of a beautiful pattern or even a clear blue sky. I love watching it.
Today, has been gloomy so far. The sky is a dull grey. I don’t know if it will rain or not. But here I am trying to post some amazing patterns from my archives, which can make me feel happy and energised in an instant.
A picturesque field, which makes me wonder if its a painting!
When man made structures and God-made coconut trees form a perfect shadow to the beautiful sunset!
Somehow this leafless tree looks so damn good against this backdrop…l love it!
Linking this with Skywatch Friday 🙂
After a week of good work, I feel these sights are little rewards from above to make me happy 🙂
The love for clouds is nearing crazy levels and my eyes feast on the colors and patterns in the sky, whenever I am out. After I installed Instagram, I started clicking those wonderful pictures and started sharing them too. This is my first entry to Skywatch Friday, in an effort to meet people of similar enthusiasm for the beautiful skies!
Partly cloudy day
Gave some rains in the evening
And when it was time for sunset
I waited with bated breath
For an orange sky and great patterns!
Before that orange takeover
The patterns kept changing
So fast and so beautiful
That I was absolutely glued
To the sky and western sky alone!
A big white cloud
In the sky
Is no fun for sky-gapers
Like me 😉
Help was requested
This big cloud situation !
The coconut tree
Offered to help
Used its green branches
In the wind
And there by in the patterns
The resultant effect made me
Jump in glee !
First comes the blue
Everywhere in even tones
Spread far and wide
To match the shade
With that of the sea !
Then the white is mixed
In a big tub
The Artist uses a sponge here
Dabs on the white
Then does a little circle
With the hand
Voila ! Creates a cloud pattern !
Patience is the key
The sponge may be wind
The white is cloud
Creating such circular patterns
As though done with a sponge
Just like in an arts class
Except that this Artist
Is World class !
Oh my !! Its the winter skies
Brilliant with cloud patterns
And beautiful hues
That take my breath away
Every morning, day after day
And then the sunsets too !!
As I stand in wonder
In that balcony of mine
My mind calms and the soul wakes up
Its this moment that I wait for everyday
That keeps me going the whole day !!
Then it hits me…
This moment needs to be captured
In lens too.
So that I can tell all those people
Of the amazing sunrise that started off the day !
And so the fingers dance over the tiny keyboard
On that outdated mobile
Without any filter
Of course, on Instagram 😀
Oh yes…it’s out there for the world to see
The sunshine pics and my happiness !
Its a routine now, everyday…
What else to call it ??
Addicted, I say !
Nature’s way of drawing patterns – in the sky and in water too 😀
