The sky.

 I'm not sure whether there is more sky here or whether I just notice the sky a whole lot more because there are so few buildings in front of it. Every day I am busy noticing the sky. And maybe during the summer it will look similar every day, but it sure looks different all the time at the moment.

One evening I was out hanging-out/bringing-in the washing and felt I should grab my camera and take some shots. All of these shots are views from my clothesline. I'm not a huge fan of doing the washing generally speaking, but I'm becoming a fan here.


Then Tuesday this week a storm cloud was rolling in. We are living in a rain shadow so we don't get as much rain as other areas around here. I'm not sure what I thought that meant, but we have had lots of days with rain since I moved here. The contrast in the sky, so blue on one side and so dark on the other side was astonishing. Perhaps this photo doesn't show it so well. We have had rainbows and all sorts this week. I'm pretty sure that my craft blog is not really the place for these photos, so I'm thinking of making a photo blog. I like the idea of taking a photo every day and recording this place, this life I'm living. 

There is making going on here at the moment though, so I'll be back tomorrow with more crafty photos!

Country skies are always fascinating...its because you arent distracted by anything else and you can see huge expanses of them. Nature really does know how to grab our attention if we let her.

Lovely pics Kris!

I'm with Dee, I love seeing the photos that are part of your life. You will have some lovely night skies up that way as there is less light from the city.

I love, love, love big skies! Yes, start taking a picture a day, standing in the same spot, same camera setting, how interesting to see the changing light and weather.

Whatcha making??
