The Skys Have it…!

My last blog post…
A bit of ‘tongue-in-cheek’ satire,
was overwhelmed by the sound of crickets!
I guess I had better stick to photography and photography related subjects and steer clear of the satire…
(Right…me keeping satire at arm’s length is very unlikely.)

this post is related to a recent 12-day trip to Daytona for SpeedWeek…plus…

I will eventually get around to writing about and posting pictures from the races, but as I went through my initial edit, I realized how much I enjoy simply looking at the sky.


(I can’t help but think of the stories told about baseball pitcher Rube Waddell and his penchant for being distracted by a fire engine and leaving the mound, mid-game, to follow it… me…”Oh, there’s a race going on? Look at the clouds…!”)


As a photographer, the first thing that usually pops into my head when I see a dramatic sky is,
“What can I put in FRONT of that?!”
Then, other times, I appreciate the sky alone for what it has to  offer.
“The sky’s the limit”


The very blue images are from above the clouds with a phone camera.

I’ve posted about clouds previously, and I still enjoy both sides…over and under.
The other images are from the big track at Daytona, but have very little to do with the track itself…or racing…
Just skies…

Oh…I did find something to put in front of a sky…

  1. Thank you, RKP, for a very enjoyable, intuitive and interesting blog. I will miss it. Like you, I love all clouds and so I wish you loads of cloudy days and nights as you continue along your photography’s path. THANK YOU.
