Skywatch Friday: Negative Space




From May 23, 2012

You never know what you'll get on the beach at the end of the day.  The deluge here is the searing sun there.  The blue sky here is the storm there.  You can't know; you have to show up for it and see.  I like this unpredictability and impermanence appealing.

One wet day in Jacksonville this week was followed for me by a slightly humid but sunny evening full of gorgeous clouds--and I just loved it.  I woke up the next morning to the sound of the surf and lightning.  Aside from the sound of the ocean, the morning was silent.   Light held center stage, and I was happy to lie in bed and watch.  It was good.  I was alone, but it was good.

  6. Being alone definitely has its benefits in a number of ways -- being able to appreciate it is a gift! And your skies/clouds are gorgeous! Enjoy the moment, always!

  21. I often like being alone and watching the sky. These are tiny moments that transport us inward.

    The photo is awesome. I like the contrasts in it.

  22. I agree with you fully on the sentiments of the sea and the beach. There is nothing more rewarding than the sea and nothing so unpredictable and ever changing.;)) So enticing.;)
    Lovely shot.;)

  23. So gorgeous. (Picture and prose). The blue and the light we get in the Southeast after a storm is fascinating to me. (When it rains in Oregon, the sky is a uniform shade of gray.)
