I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

The sky is the Limit

  • I always enjoyed looking upwards to learn more about the beautiful skies.

On certain days the color of life changes and I have noticed the beautiful skies.

My intentions to capture the wonderful sights got me excited.

I did not waste any time and went outside to get the intriguing colors on my camera.

On different days I have experienced different colors so naturally.

  • It is a natural sight and eye-catching too.

My experience led me to many unique challenges but photography never only recently came to mind.

I found the interest in capturing such beauty of life from within. My alone time is not wasted in any way.

I choose not to sit back and feel alone.

I have an agenda and that fills my days with happiness and great experiments.

The click of a camera has given me new ideas and new points of life.

I feel such photos opened my eyes to another kind of life of nature and its beauty.

  • How often do you ignore a beautiful sunset?

  • Do you ever pay attention to a lovely evening sunset?

I learned that that little moments can make me feel most happiest.

By just taking in what I see with a light breathing I have noticed what life has to offer me.

I enjoy any small moment in regards to such life and beauty. It makes me feel good and joyful.

I don't ignore the nature that surrounds me. Whether on a snowy day, or a rainy day, I fulfill the moment with a smile and with god's gift.

The environment is god's gift but often ignored and not taken care of.

I like the focus of new and old moments it allows me to see how much I can feel me and appreciate what I have in my life.

Simple things matter the most to me and makes me most happy.

  • How many of you feel happy with a simple attitude in life?

Skies are beautiful if only seen that way.

I have seen many kinds of shapes formed in cloudy or clear skies that make me wonder what life is about up there.

Just a wonder or thought occasionally that never gets out of my head.

Colorful skies or dull skies the interest can be worthwhile if you pay attention to another part of life.

The moon brings out what you don't always notice.

  • Do you enjoy the night out and look up at the shiny stars?

It is a common note of romance watching the stars for many couples.

Star gazing gives you brightness in thought and shows you courage about the next day.

  • Will it be sunny or not?

  • What got me interested in the sky color?

I recently saw a magnificent color and had to get this on camera.

I was amazed by the color and clear beauty of the appearance.

On summer evenings I have noticed many ongoing satellites passing through and that is another interesting aspect of the sky for me.

I watched these lights go by very fast and assumed it is a satellite not really sure of what to make of these movements.

The night activity has got me thinking about other features of the lovely sky.

The moon in features has such a unique appearance on certain days shows brightness when full and that leaves the night so peaceful.

  • What do you believe in about the moon?

  • Any superstitious thoughts?

  • Do you believe in myths of the moon and skies?

Life has shown me more than great challenges it has also shown me peace and security.

I have a great mind about what I do and take part in.

I enjoy watching what I can learn form and hope for a better outcome.

My positive thoughts stay with me as I look up and see another way of life.

  • Are you a star gazer?

Gazing up at the stars can make you feel like an astronomer even if you are not.

Stars do have an impact on your thoughts if you pay careful attention to what you see.

It is an incredible experience when all works itself out.

The star gazing, beautiful sunsets, and what goes on by at nights through the busy skies can leave thinking more about that sky life.

  • Do you think star gazing is not for you?

Gazing at the sky can make you feel a personal kind of ego.

I felt connected to life to a fresh and natural state of mind.

I feel relaxed when I am connected to reality.

You can feel taken by such an experience.

An intensified feeling for life from the sky and so amazing.

When you position yourself like you would when meditating, you will realize how much star gazing can make you feel most comfortable and free.

A normal way of breathing and avoid straining your eyes. Be focused but more with relaxed eyes.

The more you take part in this clear activity the more you can become involved with reality.

Do you ever bother looking upwards at all?

When I see the occasional plane pass by and when I notice stars in the sky I gaze up to see the different features. One often ignores looking upwards.

I find looking upwards for me is a relaxing feeling.

  • Do you sky gaze for a long time?

  • Do you look upwards only to see the fog or the tall buildings?

  • Do you find sky gazing boring?

The sky is so beautiful and lurks over you.

An extraordinary work of art from the sky with delicate scenes.

You need to look at the sky properly with a clear mind. The quick glances you sometimes give upwards are not as good.

  • What does the Moon do for the sky?

The Moon shows great brightness and is shows percussion dramatically.

If you understand the sky and the appearances you can feel humility. When looking upwards you tend to feel the greatness of space.

Space gives you a side of that you did not know or that you have had in you an aspect which you fail to acknowledge from the sky.

  • Why I chose to write about the sky?

I have noticed the many features and had captured a once in a lifetime experience.

I don't see such colorful skies in the winter evenings. I wanted to share my experience here it could just allow you to open your mind to sky-gazing.

I often let my imagine run away with my feelings about the distance of the stars, the moon, and the earth.

Great imaginations, and great experiences showed me more than what I had expected of the sky.

There is nothing like enjoying what you do and loving your experiments, or hobbies.

I found sky-gazing to be my best pass time during the summer evenings. Clear skies with countless stars, and to keep me gazing upwards.

If you are not expecting anything from the sky traffic, or from a wonderful imagination then don' look upwards. You won't feel the same as I, or an astronomer.

What you observe with the naked eye can fulfill your special time.

You will be able to see upwards with a better meaning, and understanding if you give it careful thought.

The dull sky and the blues skies do have something to look up for and that can make you a whole new you.

  • Have you tried sky gazing?

I enjoy what I do and sky gazing is one of my best moments, especially on a beautiful summer evening.

I don't ignore the natural moments it is these moments that give me such great and new pleasures in my life.

A new of pass time for me usually when all is quiet and peaceful I take the opportunity to have my time.

      I love where I live. The Arizona skies have given me wonderful sunsets I have never seen anywhere else. And during the night, since we are away from the city lights, there's a blanket of stars that is simply amazing.

      Mona Sabalones Gonzalez 3 years ago from Philippines

      As a child I loved sky gazing. These days however have been so horribly hot that the last thing I want to see is the sky. Maybe I have it all wrong, and I should take time to look up, no matter how penetrating the heat. The sky will, after all, always be what it is. Great hub.

      As a naturalist I must say how much I agree with your wonderful insight to nature. 'Does anyone bother to look up?' you have given many reasons why one should do. Excellent work. Voted up ,interesting,beautiful and useful. Your photographs are stunning.

      I am a sky gazer for sure. I love to watch the clouds form and pass by, and there is nothing more spectacular than a beautiful sunrise or sunset.

      Watching the sun set and watching the sun come up are two of the best performances we can ever witness. I rarely miss either one. Your pictures are very beautiful. Good to read your hub. I'm trying to catch up on everyone I have missed in the last two weeks or so. Voted up and shared.

      Hi DDE, Beautiful sites that you've captured I must say. It shows me that God is showing you His creative beauty to share with the world and that He's watching over you in a beautiful way. You have the right attitude about things. Keep up the good work and writings. I look forward to reading your hubs :-)

      Yes Devika, I am a sky gazer too. From when I was a little girl, it was called day-dreaming sometimes. Sun-sets I was usually to tired from working all day in the cotton fields, sometimes even to tired to eat.

      Your pictures are beautiful.
