Night Sky

Original photo by JE

Tempestuous clouds stretch and sweep above the sleepy streets of my home town.

Though the colorful beacons that light our world shine boldly throwing sparks into the majesty of night, their brash splendor cannot rival the subtle shades and intricate turning of this turbulent skyscape. Indigo, lapis and cerulean are marbled around one milky thread of denim blue as the clouds arch and roil, far exceeding and indifferent to the display below.

Contoured and defined the edges of these colors speak eloquently of nature's creative hand. Thunderous, yet playful, they strike my imagination like flint and spark my own creative fires.
