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.)

  3. There’s just something about those clouds at Beasley Park that keep me going back to that photo. Lovely.

  4. 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!
