Eyes On The Skies

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared photos of sunrises or sunsets, so today seems like a good day to do that.

This was the sunrise one recent (very humid) morning.  In the next few weeks, the sunrise location will change, so we won’t have such a clear view.

The sunsets have been pretty nice, too.  Just as the sunrise location changes with the seasons, so does the one for the sunsets.  We don’t see the sunsets as well during the fall/winter months.

This next picture was taken “on the road”.  Motor Man and I were crossing a nearby bridge one morning just after sunrise. This cottage replaced one that washed away during a hurricane several years ago.

One of my Facebook friends recently posted a photo of a cloud that resembled a flying fish.  I, too, have noticed some “animal-shaped” clouds recently. I thought this one looked somewhat like a wild boar.

And I was undecided about the cloud in the center of this next photo.  My first thought (of course) was that it looked like a horse. But, then, once I uploaded the pictures to my computer, I saw a dragon. (He even seemed to be breathing fire…)

The sky is sometimes a busy place.  Do you find yourself looking for shapes within the clouds? It’s a leftover pastime from our childhood, I suppose.
