Those who know me well, know that I have this ever lasting obsession with the sky. No matter where I will be, I will often have my head tilted back to the sky.
There’s something about the sky that makes me want to sit down and just take it all in. Especially when it’s around dawn or dusk, I adore those parts of the day. The early brisk mornings, where the light has just barely started to touch the trees and the world around you is still asleep or those early sunsets in winter; where everyone in the train commuting home is sitting with their heads bent down reading the newspaper or focused on their phone and I feel like I’m the only one in the whole train who is seeing the beautiful sunset that is happing just outside of the carriage window. I like to look around in those moments sometimes, wondering how noone can see the beauty of nature right there. How there is noone else in the train going “oh wow that’s beautiful” and put their phone down for a while to just watch the outside world bask in the last rays of sunlight. Then I’ll shrug and go back to dreamingly watching how the sun paints the sky in many different hues. I also love that time when the sun is already down and you can see the sky becoming different hues of blue.
Imke got us a small but very good camera for my birthday. The pictures are amazing but what made me especially giddy is how well the pictures of the sky taken with it turn out!
So today, I’ll share with you some of the skies I’ve seen and photographed here in Ireland. Some are not high-quality because they were taken with my phone, but I wanted to show you the different faces of the Irish sky 🙂 Personally I enjoy sunny weather but the sky lacks depth without any clouds in it whatsoever, the same way a completely grey sky lacks depth too. It’s the contrast and different hues that catch my attention most.
