Low Horizons & Big Skies


I’ve always been a fan of low horizons … especially when the sky is interesting enough to deserve the extra attention. If you follow this blog it’s likely you’ve seen some, mixed in among my landscape posts. Here are a few recent images with skies that attracted my eye. I see them as giant canvases that Mother Nature has painted for us to enjoy. Like abstract paintings I find the shapes, patterns and colors very appealing. Standing before them and soaking in the panorama is always rewarding. The views feed my mind, body and soul! And, I’m grateful for the opportunity to experience these beautiful moments with my camera!

  1. Mother Nature may have created it but you captured them forever. The mountain ranges are beautiful but I would just love to be lying in that green pasture looking up at that incredible cloud display

  2. Beautiful shots and interesting subject matter.

  3. These are lovely shots, Denise, and your words about Nature mirror my thoughts exactly. “I see them as giant canvases that Mother Nature has painted for us to enjoy.”
