A new project in 2019 keeps my eye to the sky.

In order to enliven my interest in digital photography, I decided to simply photograph the sky for a new blog, and make a few descriptive comments.  It sounds pretty mundane, I suppose, but I've been amazed at the variety of captures I've obtained since the first of the year.  

The sky isn't hard to pin down, it's always available, and has a truly variable personality.  Sometimes I take my small point and shoot along with me in the car on errands.  It is easy to snap a few sky photos through the car window.  My little camera allows me to zoom, and even isolate areas in the photo and save them as additional photos.  

This new interest has given me a bit of boost through some of the more tedious moments of the winter we experience in the Sunbelt.  The more I focus on my hobby, the more opportunities seem to present themselves.  I've collected some interesting sky subjects morning, noon, and night, cloud or shine, twilight, sunset, and even that pesky January full moon as it hung silently and waiting for the big eclipse event later that night. 

I don't know if the sky's the limit, as the saying goes; but it certainly is a great starting point for a simple practice that brings pleasure and can be shared with others.  I've even met a few inland gulls along the way, who seemed more than willing to participate in my sky exercise.  

Take a look at if you please.  Excuse me....the sky is waiting!

(Have you ever seriously photographed the sky?  Did you find it uplifting?)
