UnSkywatch Friday

The past couple of weeks the sky has either been crystal clear or a dull grey.  In either case, there hasn't been much to photograph and I didn't really want to pull images from the archives and post them.  So, I pointed the camera and the world around me in one of my favorite places.  A couple of miles from our house is one of seven small lakes in the area.  I like going to the spillway, by the dam, from time to time just to watch the water wind through the rocks.  Of course, when we get cold weather and snow, there is the opportunity for some really nice images.  Since Christmas, the weather has been extremely cold and we have gotten some snow.  Here are the results...Ice water!

Hopefully the sky will provide better opportunities for photos this coming week.  Until then, happy skywatching all.

As I begin this new year I have given some thought to resolutions.  Most of us at least think about making some sort of change in our lives each year.  We want to lose weight, get in better physical shape, change our wardrobe, make new friends, etc.  We look at our lives, then we look at the world around us and we decide what adjustments we need to make in order to live better in this world.  For the Christan that has become our greatest problem.  We have adjusted to this world.  The truth is our home is a place prepared for us by our Savior and one day He will come again to take us home.  Until then, we are to be salt and light in this world.  It is our responsibility to live a life that honors and glorifies our Creator and not simply to adjust to the world around us.  So, with that said, "I don't want to get adjusted,"


  1. Love the shots. Wow, that's impressive.

    I've not heard this song before. You know, I don't want to get adjusted either.

    Good luck with your weight loss. It's a tough thing to do.

    Have a blessed day. ☺

  2. Fabulous photos!
