Walking on the Clouds

“A pessimist only sees the dark side of the clouds, and mopes;
a philosopher sees both sides and shrugs;
an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all–
he’s walking on them.” ~ Levinson

Last weekend I was able to get outside and enjoy some beautiful spring weather as we worked on a home-improvement project. I couldn’t help but snap a few photos of the lovely blue skies and white, puffy clouds that graced the sky that morning.  (Yes, I had my small camera in my pocket…I told you I was a photo freak!)  As I was scrolling through and editing my photos from the weekend it dawned on me how many times I had taken photos of the clouds in the sky.  The more dramatic skies appealed to my shutter-bug nature, of course, but even the clear blue spring day pictured above was enough to pause me in my tracks.  I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites with you today…along with a few quotes about clouds as well.

I know they say “keep your chin up” but be sure to keep your eyes up too, you never know what you just might see.

Silver linings,

    Are any of these with the new camera? The pics are gorgeous!

    • Hey Cat! No these are a collection of several year’s worth of cloud photos, the newest (at the top) was a few days before I got the new camera. Maybe I’ll catch some nice clouds this weekend!

  3. Beautiful photos! I love number 2 with the sun trying to come out from behind the clouds.

    • Thank you! That one brings back a wonderful memory of an early sunrise that I couldn’t resist taking photos of. I was totally late for an appointment but haven’t ever regretted taking the time to capture the beauty. 🙂
