Mornings and Nights ~somewhere else

I'm a sky watcher.
No matter where I am- I always catch myself looking up...head in the clouds I guess you could say.

This week I'm in Arizona.

No...I am still being loyal to my Canadian (cold)~~
but felt the need to absorb some warmth before winter really begins.
~~~~~~~~~

This was the sunrise which greeted me
as I  opened the hotel door early yesterday:

This was the sunset~ (or rather, Moon~rise), 
coming back in from my hike last evening:

No matter where I am....{cold or warmth},  the sky holds incredible beauty.
~~~~~

It's really not such a bad thing to walk 
around with your head in the clouds.

Wonderful scenes, Dawn. Both of them. A change of scenery is good for anyone, however much you like your home.

I'm a cloud spotter now. I don't belong to that organization, but I have my head in the clouds for sure. I missed clouds so much when I lived in Los Angeles. For some reason, clouds are few and far between there. Then I moved here, to the desert mountains, and now my head is always in the clouds. Love it!

Clint said...

I too love the sky---the colors, the clouds and the shapes and shadows that are in constant flux. And at night, more change and stunning panoplies...

From one Canadian girl to another lucky warm girl it is cold here. Beautiful shots. I always look up too. Have fun enjoy. B

Oh, you'll be missing all the rain and the snow.

Rick said...

Yep - catch myself doing that all the time now (drives my wife crazy when we're out for a walk and I keep saying - "wow, look at THAT sky !").

Beautiful shots, Dawn - and don't blame you for warming your bones before winter !

Hilary said...

Too beautiful. We miss too much by not looking up once in a while. Enjoy the warmth.

Michael Manning said...

I feel that I miss something if I don't check out the sky at night! Great pics!!

Alan said...

Never mind having your head in the clouds, it sounds like you got your entire body up there too, to fly to Arizona. I'm impressed! Hope it was worth the trauma. I'd say it was just for these two pics...
