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,

Lynne

    • 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. 🙂
