The Skies Above

It's been a few weeks.....but it's time to get back in the saddle with the 52 Photos Project.  This week's meme is The Skies Above.  When you look up in the sky, what do you see?






There's tons of sky photos stored on my hard drive.  The only hard part - finding them!  But when I came across this image, I knew it was the one.

This image was taken many years ago in my husband's hometown of Yankton, South Dakota.  One night at sunset, a thunderstorm rolled in over the Missouri River.  My sister-in-law and I happened to be walking along the riverbank and were lucky enough to witness the sky turning these fabulous colors.  And I was fortunate to have my camera with me.

For more creative shots of the sky check out the 52 Photos Project here.

  1. Wow, what a beauty! I love South Dakota, though I'm more familiar with the western rolling hills around Lemmon. That's a photo treasure!

  2. That is one incredible shot of nature at work. I love how the sky and water are almost seamless.

  3. It is hard to believe that a day can be so clear and bright and for just the briefest of times you get this slam dunk of saturated warm color. Just gorgeous!
