december skies.

december skies 2011


We've had some unusually non-rainy, clear sky days for this time of year. I'm almost afraid if I say it out loud it might start raining right this minute. But I'll take that chance. These were all snapped from my cell phone, most of them out the front door or the back door of our house, or at the parking lot of my favorite grocery store. It's been my latest cell phone photo obsession - the trees and the sky.  Naked trees against a bright, blue sky. Branches peaking out through ghostly, dense fog. A white contrail streaked across a the great blue yonder. Maybe I'm obsessed with the simplicity. Or maybe it's the limitless feeling evoked by looking up to the heavens.

{Taking the week off to spend time with my boy, destress from the craziness of the holidays, and gather my thoughts as we head into a new year. Enjoy the last week of 2011, friends.}

Love these pics! The collage together looks terrific. Maybe I should start focusing on the beauty of the trees and sky as opposed to our dead grass and no snow. :) Have a great week off spending time with your family.

Oh my gosh! I love this! I have always loved the way the sky changes each day. I really need to start taking more sky pics! This would look really nice printed on a big canvas.
