Can you believe the clouds in these photos? They absolutely kill me. Were I to name one activity that single-handedly demonstrates the enormity and the grandeur of our universe, that activity would be gazing and photographing the sky on gorgeous, cloudy days. At times, my breath is literally taken. These photos were captured near Manito, IL, during my recent trip downstate. A wonderful, rural escape.

  2. Gorgeous! There is nothing that I love more than a big, beautiful, open expanse of sky. It makes me feel so free.

    Thank you for the thrifting news! I am hoping that with spring will come spring cleaning and lots of treasures ending up in the stores for me to buy. I think I will go thrifiting today, actually. : )



  3. I do love a buttermilk sky! I saw some clouds on the way back from Granny's yesterday that made me wish I had a camera with me. There were wispy, feather-shaped ones and puffy ones right next to each other. Just beautiful. Love these pictures, Mally.

  4. Thank you! I love clouds in the country!
