Changing Sky

Happy New Year's Day!

Today is theme day for City Daily Photo Bloggers. The theme is Changes.

I selected this dramatic photo I took in Sedona as a storm rolled in to remind everyone that we all face the changing sky of storms or blue sky, analogous to how we live and handle each day.

The duality in the photo corresponds to daily life.

Sometimes life is stormy and challenging, and sometimes life is calm, beautiful and fun.

I wish you the very best for 2010. You can handle the changes of the big sky of life. Happy New Year!

I love seeing Costa Rica and then Arizona. Did you consult with each other before posting? The changeability of nature: the sky, the wind, the rocks, the sea...always changing...and you are always ready with your camera to help us see and appreciate the changes. Thank you.

What a wild and crazy sky over those wondrous red mountains. So dramatic. Once again, Happy New Year, Julie xxx

Brattcat,

In answer to your question, Julie and I usually do not consult with each other before we select our posts. Also, we both like to line up our posts in advance, when possible, so we usually do not know each other has posted until we check our computers in the morning. If there are similarities, they are coincidental.

An exception is that we will sometimes discuss or seek input regarding what we are considering posting for Theme Days.

Beautiful photo. I enlarged it and it felt like the storm was going to slide right out of the computer screen.

Storm clouds and blue sky together - just like life. May blue skies prevail for you in the new year!

You nailed this is so many ways, Julie. Yes the sky is a perfect metaphor for life. In 2010, may yours be blue with a cumulus cloud or two for interest.
