Winter Sky

When I wasn't taking pictures of the kids on their sleds, during my hometown sledding trip, I couldn't stop snapping photos of the amazing sky. It was a rich, cool blue and covered with wispy clouds and trails left from airplanes (which since it was a few days before Christmas made me think of all the people making their way home for the holidays.)

I don't think I really ever appreciated what a beautiful place I was raised in until I started traveling. I think seeing more of the world expands your idea of beauty. And you start to see how emotions like happiness make every place even more lovely.

I've arrived in Australia, trying to get on the right time zone and sweating while I look at this chilly photos!

The older we get the more we appreciate. Youth wasted on the young I guess is a true statement. Love that last shot with the vapor trail.
