Thematic Photographic 342 - Sky

Fire in the sky
London, ON
June 2015
I'll make this week's theme super-simple: I've been pointing my camera up fairly frequently of late. I'm not entirely sure why this is the case, but the sky has always been a reliable source of inspiration whenever my shutter finger gets twitchy.

In this case, the kids noticed the sky's especially intense cast as sunset approached, and grabbed their phones and ran outside to try to capture it. Like the ambling father that I've become, I followed them out and in between shooting we tried to figure out why this particular evening's sunset was especially dramatic.

We never did figure it out, as there were no nearby wildfires and there hadn't been any recent thunderstorms in the area. But whatever the source, I'm glad our little folks were curious enough to follow their gut and try to capture the moment.

Your turn: Point your lens skyward, take a pic of it, share it on your blog or website and then leave a comment here letting everyone know where they can find it. Visit other Thematic participants and feel free to return later in the week if you have additional pics to share - we encourage that sort of thing. If you're new to this, head here for more details. Otherwise, have fun with it, and happy shooting!

Now that's the best kind of shooting, so could that they took time to notice and call you into their view! It's like a most beautiful sky on fire! Here's mine

That's a good idea, Carmi. It will be from an iPod Phone though, as my camera has been stolen. I have not had the best luck capturing beautiful sunsets. Will try it.

Is it a bird? It's sure not Superman. Look what came floating by. http://bit.ly/1MpFkdt
