As some of you may know I am involved with a bird banding group. One of the things I like most about banding is the opportunity to seem common birds very close up. In almost all cases a beauty is revealed that exceeds the bird’s mundane reputation (keep going this does have something to do with the sky).
I’ve been thinking about the sky over the last few weeks – I’ve not been at work, so such things are possible, even encouraged during such times. And I’ve come to the conclusion that I may have missed the beauty in the more common, everyday skies that surround us. So, with this in mind I took this picture. The blue is an Australian sky to a tee, and the hint of cloud is there to remind us that the sky is full of water as well as light.
I still love the big showy skies of dusk and dawn, the drama of thunder clouds and sword rays of light. But where would we be without simple sky blue skies like this?
You can find more (and probably more spectacular) skies at SkyWatch Friday.

Enjoy the skies.
