A walk in the clouds

“… not all those who wander are lost.”

~ J.R.R. Tolkien

When I go in my photo hikes, I spend my hours outside looking everywhere for something new, or interesting. I’ve knelt in wet leaves and lain prone in sand to get just the right angle on a shot. I’ve climbed on rocks and wended my way under bridges looking for a unique perspective on everyday things.

This weekend, I spent the entire day looking… up.

(Other than adding watermarks, cropping the first and last photos, straightening and resizing, no other editing was done to these images.)

  1. I’d love to run on that white sugar. Most of our beaches have brown sand.
    These sky shots look so summery. We are still waiting for warmer days, right now it’s sunny but not warm.
    Have a good week ahead!


  2. Love the clouds, and your perspective in them. These were beautiful Tara. It’s starting to get that way here, and I watch them on my way home from work… (I know I should be watching the road, but sheesh ;-) Thank you for some beautiful skies!


  3. As I just said to Unknown Mami on her blog we seemed to be stuck in grey sky land at the moment. I really hope looking up will bring blue skies and big puffy clouds soon.
