We have been living here in Sierra Vista for almost a year now (October 3rd will be one year) and one of the things that I like most about living here is the sky. I’ve always been a sky watcher and the wide open spaces here really make sky watching so much easier. Last week I posted a picture of the clouds obscuring the mountain behind our house. The very next day I took this picture:
It is almost as if you could just reach up and grab one of those clouds! I never get tired of watching the interplay of the clouds with the distant mountains, either obscuring them or casting interesting shadows. And when there are no clouds, the sky is a beautiful blue. Arizonians like to claim the blue sky for their own, but I’ve noticed the same pride in their blue skies by North Carolinians, Alabamians and Floridians.
Here are some more “sky” pictures that I’ve taken in the year we’ve been here:
