Your sky shots are always an uplifting treat at the end of a week, and your quote about not being able to plan life is absolutely perfect!

Beautiful images, beautiful words - as always. Love those golden sunsets, especially.

Rita said...

Sylvia, sorry to be so slow returning your visit last month. I'm still trying to play catch up from my time in hospital.

Lovely captures all. But, the birds are my favorite. I always have a hard time photographing formations of birds in flight. You did a fantastic job.
