Same View, Different Skies

These twin minarets can be found atop a mosque down the street from school. I took photos of them on days when the weather was quite different ...

Gray skies ...

Cloudy skies ...

Brilliant blue skies ...

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.

Have a terrific Tuesday! Friendship blessings, Tammy

That is such a beautiful Emerson quote - especially for all of us who love taking sky pics, now I feel it's quite special!!!

OMG Tammy, what a gorgeous mosque! Those minarets are really amazing. Your pictures of them are just beautiful.
What a blessing to see such beauty everyday. Sometimes I crave to live somewhere with beautiful architecture.

Tammy said...

Amen sister! I always enjoy the morning sky on my way to work. Often times the sunrise is amazing, other times the clouds are in wonderful patterns. I love a stormy sky with lightning. Those minarets are very pretty.
Have a wonderful day.

The minarets are beautiful under any of these skies....I do feel a little partial to the clear blue skies though as blues and whites/creams go so nicely together.
