Alone with the heavens


“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.” Anne Frank

One of the many beautiful beaches in our area on a crisp winter’s day. Off season is my favourite time of year to walk the beach, you have it almost to yourself excep for all those million & one thoughts you never have time for anywhere else.
Be sure to check Wiggers World for links to all the other SkyWatch participants. It is an amazing collection of photos from around the world.

The most interesting thing I discovered about SkyWatch from simply watching what others were posting, beautiful skies start appearing in your own day. In the middle of the average day full of hectic deadlines and traffic jams, your mind starts to frame up shots of sun light dancing on the clouds. We all know there is beauty in the everyday, sometimes you simply need to be reminded.

So true and what a beautiful photo. My favourite beach time is in the winter too, the wilder and more deserted the better for me.

I so agree with you on this.. I also notice more shots or just the beauty of other things as well.. thats the way it is with picture taking and blogging.. If Sky Watch helps that along then .. great.
