My today's sunset 0150

Skies from my balcony

Deze blog post in het Nederlands (link)

What I love most about the place where I live, and what I most enjoy every day, is  the sky. From my balcony, I can see the sky from the East, where in the early morning the sun rises, till the West-South-West early where the sun sets on winter evenings. How marvellous is that?! I have a beautiful view outside all day long and I cannot stop photographing that sky and the tree tops, especially in October and November, when I have the best view on both sunrise and sunset. I’ve loads and loads of sky pictures by now, and I definitely will continue collecting them. That’s why I have stopped giving them separate names. They are all called “My today’s sunset” (or sunrise) with a number – and belong all to the same collection: “Skies from my balcony”.

For those who like to use stock images, you’re most welcome to go check out my unrestricted stock account at Deviantart, where you can choose from lots of my skies, and download and use them as stock for free. Just please keep to the very few terms of use 😉 . They make for a great background for photo manipulations or composites, as well as for quotes (as you will see in the second image I post today).  And yes, when looking at a sky like this, it’s not hard to become silent and thankful for all the good received today… The moment of sunset after a well filled day truly is the moment to give thanks!
