“I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.” ~ Mike Tyson
This weekend we asked our readers to look toward the heavens and tell us what they see.
As for myself, I can be found on many an afternoon curled up on the kitchen sofa, looking out through the window, a cup of tea in hand and my attention focused upon the skies.
I am easily mesmerised by fluffy white clouds as they drift on by. Routinely, I look for half-hidden faces and the peculiarities within the shapes.
The dark menacing ones with their innumerable shades of grey fascinate me. At other times I’m captivated as the sky amasses a diversity of hues. No doubt about it I am a hopeless sky gazer.
The jet streams never fail to grab my attention it really is eye-opening to see how busy the sky becomes. I almost expect the tiny dots to collide at any moment, though in actuality they are probably miles apart.
Taking a morning walk around a local lake back in 2017 the engine noise from the nearby airport runway alerted me to an imminent take-off, and with my old Sony Alpha 200 With its long lens attached, I captured a cloudless sky and an aircraft en route to Malta!
October 2018 and another walk around the lake, this time featuring an angry looking sky.
The clouds above the wind turbine on a neighbour’s farm remind me of snow.
The above two September photos were taken only seconds apart. Looking out from my bedroom window I zoomed in on a perfectly shaped full moon, and walking across the landing onto the balcony I enjoyed a beautiful sunrise.
