Clouds and Light – June 27th

20140627-140427-50667770.jpg

Because clouds and rays of light are beautiful! This is beautiful. I remember standing in the parking lot at the park and just being stunned by how beautiful this was. I enjoy clouds and bright blue skies. I can remember that when I was younger I would just stand there and snap shots of them like crazy. Thankful to live in a place where there isn’t to many tall buildings that block the sky.

Have a blessed day!

Yellow and Purple- June 5th

20140605-085715-32235576.jpg

Last night I was awakened by the sound of hail pinging off my windows. The lightening was like a strobe light, constantly flickering but not so much thunder. That for sure means summer is here, those are summer storms. But as I was snuggled up in my bed it made me thankful for a garage and my home and a comfy bed. I wouldn’t want to be out in a storm like that. And it made me think about all the people who are out in a storm like that, wherever they are. God, I hope you kept them safe last night…

I snapped this photo last weekend at the local butterfly garden. This beautiful yellow-green butterfly on a pretty purple flower. Enjoy!

Also, I pray you are safe today, we are expecting storms here, I can already see it moving in. So stay safe friends!

Have a blessed day!

Raindrops on Daisies – June 4th

20140604-094404-35044529.jpg

I snapped this photo over the weekend. We have been in a weather pattern where we have had pop-up storms everyday. And this particular day it was a good old fashioned gully washer. These beautiful daisies were in a planter outside of a store I was in at the time this particular pop-up storm happened. I really love these flowers, and they are especially pretty with raindrops on them.

Have a blessed day!

Flags and Blossoms – April 29th

20140429-090814.jpg

This photo took a patriotic turn, wasn’t meant to, but the pink blossoms against the blues sky, and the flags blowing in the wind made for a beautiful picture. Snapped this photo over the weekend, on Saturday afternoon. Before Sunday brought storms that devastated many areas close to where I live. It is that time of the year. I live in such a beautiful place, warm and green. But right now we all listens to the weather reports a little more and watch the skies a little more. Wanting to be prepared for whatever may be thrown at us. We had rain with sunshine yesterday in the early evening. It is what it is. Sometimes you get rainbows and sometimes you get nickel sized hail. If you think about it, maybe say a prayer for all those who suffered loss on Sunday and Monday. And hoping that wherever you are you are safe.

Have a blessed day!

One More Rainbow – April 4th

20140404-092230.jpg

Had to share on more photo. I captured this with my iPhone and that cool panoramic setting. I captured the entire thing! Posted this to the weather Facebook page of our local new stations yesterday too!

And just when I was talking about hoping that something would happen to make you stand in awe yesterday, God drops this! Stunning!

Have a blessed day!

Perfect Light – April 3rd

20140403-112552.jpg

Sometimes you snap a photo at the right time. Perfect lighting or reflection or action shot, and you just know. This is one for me. A little bit of comfort as we wait patiently for some strong storms that are expected today. There was already a tornado this morning in St. Louis, praying for all who have damage to their homes or cars. That’s the only thing that is not the best about living in Southwest Missouri, storms. And we get some bad ones, so you might say a prayer for all who are under warnings or watches today and tonight.

Have a blessed day!

It’s Supposed to be Snowing – February 26th

20140226-204904.jpg

So the funny story is I took this photo to prove a point. You know you can have those widgets or apps on your computer that tell you the weather. Well today the one on my work computer was wrong and I mean wrong!

20140226-205144.jpg

Please notice that it says it is snowing, but as you can see from the first photo it is obviously not! Hilarious! I do so enjoy technology at times. On a lighter note, it was beautiful and sunny outside today and that was nice. Takes great photos doesn’t it?

Have a blessed evening!

Sundog – February 7th

20140207-103549.jpg

This my friends is a sundog, it is a atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun. Or at least that’s what Wikipedia says. I only wish is was in a better place to stop and capture it better. So beautiful!

Have a blessed day!

Snow, Sleet or Rain – November 25th

20131125-081404.jpg

It’s out there, lurking…snow, sleet or rain…we are waiting and holding our breath. Mostly because if you know the first snow of the season everyone loses their minds or at least forgets how to drive in the snow.

This photo was snapped when the leaves were still on the trees, before they had fallen on the ground. I just loved how bright and red these leaves were and the red berries were so pretty. What can I say, I love the colors of fall!

On a lighter note, this week brings my second favorite holiday, Thanksgiving! I am so excited, so many things to make and enjoy. Getting to put up my Christmas tree and decorate the house, what can I say I like Christmas. One thing I will not be doing is standing in any lines on Thursday night or Friday! No Black Friday shopping for this girl. I think I am more of a Small Business Saturday girl anyway!

Have a blessed day!
