inspiration: the sky from my bedroom window

Every morning I open the curtains in my bedroom so the sun will help Simon wake up. For a while it was dark when I did this. But with the time change it has been getting light out while I'm still at home and every morning right around 7:10 the sky is amazing.

11/21 - do you see that jet stream?
I mean truly honestly amazing. Shockingly so. I am still trying to figure out why the sky is such a revelation to me, when it has been around my whole life.


The night sky is pretty great, too. I guess.


 I am completely awed by the difference in cloud structure, color, quality of light, and mood within a span of a few days. These skies only exist for a short amount of time, so unless you are really paying attention, they are easy to miss. If I wasn't such a slave to time, I would wake up with the sun every morning and take a picture. A project for winter break perhaps.


  1. Wow. That first one is totally a quilt.
    Beautiful! And I agree - the midwestern sky is a wonder.

  2. Amazing photos, Kim. We never get bright oranges like that here. Is it from smog or what's the deal? I hope all is well with you and Simon.

  3. Hi Patrick! Yes, I think the colors are a product of air pollution.
