Looking at the Sky - Massive yet delicate





Looking at the Sky on Friday reappears this week and the heavens beckon from us our cameras and  our attention...


I enjoy a fair-weather sky, especially after the heat and humidity this summer (to be gone and replaced by mid 70s temps this weekend). 


My subject is the lovely St Thomas Seminary outside Hartford. Resplendent in its Gothic architecture. Imposing and elegant, this granite structure fills the frame in sepia splendor...



However, as big as the buildings are, they are dwarfed by large fair weather clouds that seem to be descending upon the four spires atop the tower. 


Yet the blue predominates above and beyond the earth’s horizon. Looking at the sky never ever gets old. See more sky at Tisha’s meme...
