Pieces of the Sky

I've been building up a collection of sky photos for a while now, and since I have a blog, I thought why not share them here? 

Although I'm not a photographer or anything, I think most of the pictures (or at least what's in them) are gorgeous, and I'm excited to be able to share them with you :3.

Cloud cover (while driving...obviously)

I regret not having the stroke of brilliance to *video* this, as watching the clouds creep over and waft through the sky was incredible! Still, I'm happy about capturing a tiny piece of the moment.

Sun burst...again

I really like the hope, possibility, and freedom that these two pictures convey. It was difficult to get the shot right, though, which I why I took two pics...and I still don't feel like I really captured it. *sigh* oh well. I tried. 

Rainy day sky

Rainy days frequent Alabama summers, which throws off my groove. But I like the idea behind a big gray sky--it seems so peaceful and certain about the future. It has a grace about it that is open and submissive to change. 

Dusky pink sky
Dusk is one of my favorite times to take sky pictures because of the hues--peach and peony and lilac look lovely together, don't they? It makes me so happy ^_^

Moon at dusk

Ahh! This picture is so cool!!! Well, it could've come out better--it looked about 10x more fantastic in real life. Still, what a great moment to be alive to see :)

Night skyline at Vulcan

City lights are fantastic. The best ones that I've ever seen (other than Tokyo, of course...but I've never actually been IN Tokyo, so...): Quebec. The buildings were the prettiest shade of green because of the aged copper, and the lights were everywhere. It was breathtaking.

And finally--I tried to save the best for last!--here's a picture of a double rainbow!!

If you look closely, you can see the double rainbow!! I didn't have my phone on me when I saw this, but a friend of mine did, so she took a picture and was kind enough to send it to me. Thanks :)!

Well, what did you think? Beautiful, right?? 
I hope you enjoyed these pieces of the sky!


  1. Oh they are gorgeous Lynanne! I love the first pink one. Great job on em.

    1. Thanks Anna!! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the pictures :). I really like the pink one, too...I just also really like the moon one (I remember the sky that day when I look at that one, so it's kinda nostalgic)...and the rainbow. So you see my dilemma in trying to settle down on a favorite lol
