SkywatchFriday 2023 | Week 3

“I think it happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realise that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. And so you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”

—Nicholas Sparks

Some days, thoughts like these leave me with mixed feelings. These are the times when the sky tells me: ” Do nothing. Learn to accept what is beyond your control and let go.”

Letting go of nice things and the not-so-nice things are equally important. We learn so much about life from hindsight. From losses we encounter and the joyful times as much as the pain from the people and our interactions with them through the various stages of life.

And at the end of every single day, we realise how every thing we encounter alter us and help us grow even if in a tiny way, from the person that we were, when we had opened our eyes that morning.

Life continues to be the greatest teacher of all.

Sharing today, a few sky shots from the week, captured on the go.

The rains have gone for a while now, but the winter mornings are very foggy. Of course, later in the day, when the sky clears up, we are blessed with sunshine for the rest of the day. The sunsets have been quite colourful and spectacular lately, especially, noticeable after a rather long spell of grey since the past few months.

On most of the days, the western skyline is at it’s best at dusk, so, no matter how busy I happen to be, I grab a few mindful minutes to myself, just to be one with nature and the sky. Occasionally, a family member also joins me to enjoy the views, as we savour our cuppas before we head back to our respective chores.

It’s the clouds that add drama to the eastern sky!

Foggy mornings when the sky vanishes from sight and later reappears again!

Can you spot the Moon close to the contrail?

That’s all for today. Will be back next week with another sky photo edition. I’ve pledged to be regular at this now, so will be posting every week. If you’re stopping by after a long time, do catch up with the previous Sky photo posts in the link below.

Until then, wish you a wonderfully relaxed weekend. Stay safe and take care!
