Ailsa’s got her travel theme on at Where’s My Backpack?, and thankfully, it doesn’t have anything to do with stuffing oneself silly with turkey and mashed potatoes.
Anyway. The theme this week at Ailsa’s joint is sky. Big sky, open sky, cloudy sky, blue sky. As you’ll see, I tend to like sky with water. Whatever works. And so. With no further ado, I give you…sky.
This first picture was taken as the sun was starting to set and finally dipping below the clouds, from a hotel room looking over Seneca Lake toward the city of Geneva, NY. I always thought the colors in this photo were vaguely ethereal, and I don’t know why but I’m totally amused by the wind turbines in the background.
The next picture was taken much closer to (my) home. Like, in my home town. Like, I rode my bike here to take this picture. If you’re going to find a place full of bucolic splendor and fat, chuggy clouds, so you can catch your breath, this is the place.
Gary, Indiana, presents travelers driving along Route 90 with kind of a depressing, totally industrial landscape. The black cloud in the sky to the left of the photo just lingered…and lingered…and never dispersed. It kind of freaked me out.
The next photo was taken during a crazy-windy day at Grand Marais along the North Shore of Lake Superior. I like that the clouds here look like waves, almost. As it is on the ground, so it goes in the sky, too.
What sky shots do you have?
Enjoy the travel theme! See you ’round Ailsa’s place.
