SkywatchFriday 2023 | Week 1

The sky is still amazing even when the clouds are grey.

—Anon

As a dreamer, every time I’ve longed for a better place, I’ve looked out at the sky, no matter where I am. The soft morning light as the day breaks has felt as comforting as the soothing essence of petrichor after a fresh downpour, or the dazzle of a glorious sunset on the evening sky—to me, these have all been ways of Mother Nature calling us back, every time we stray away into the madness of our gadget-driven regimented lives!

For some reason, as an eternal optimist, I always thought that the sky has been a reminder that all things are possible, no matter how impossible they seem to be at the moment—almost like a promise for new undertakings, it has been like a blank slate given by life to craft our life story. Don’t ask me why or how. It was always like that, for me.

Every time one needed a touch of inspiration to reignite the fire in one’s soul, one need only to have looked up to the power of the sky. It’s been a life-long passion to grab sky shots—one that has sustained me through the rough times, granting a happy respite from the mundane and filling me with peace and calm within.

It’s the very first #SkywatchFriday of the year and I’m pledging to post as regularly as possible with my fellow sky lovers because, all said and done, a joy shared is always doubled!

See you next week with another edition of sky photos.

Until then, have a blessed week, stay safe and be productive but most of all, don’t forget to snatch a few mindful moments in the presence of nature. That bliss and quiet is an absolute must. Your heart, body, mind and soul will thank you for that.

  1. Good to see you continue posting pictures for the skywatch. While still a person who loves watching the stunning sky scenes, I have stopped sharing pictures on the blog. Hope you are doing well, Esha. Happy new year.
