Beauty


“One does not see anything until one sees its beauty.” Oscar Wilde

Welcome to
Sky Watch Friday, where bloggers from all over find the beauty in their own view of the sky.

A very early morning sunrise on the beaches of northern NSW Australia.

Finding your True North is a popular term in North America, along the lines of being true to your core
beliefs, a good theme for a project for the Creative Women group.

Hi Pearl Maple
Serene- Pretty composition with those trees.
(BTW, I adore pearls and see them so lovely in your blog header. I often use pearls in the jewelry I make.)
