These are my latest “Canadian skies pictures” I took earlier this summer. Beautiful sunsets, shades of blue, purple, pink and white and some beautiful — and unusual —  clouds.

  1. When I was a kid, I would look at the skies when I got bored at home. I used to have a yard where I could just layout and look at the skies forever.

    I miss the skies sometimes. I feel that in this hustle and bustle of a city and life, I miss out on how amazing the sky really is. To me it points towards something greater, indeed an interesting array of colors.

    Great post, great photos!

  2. I love pics like this. We have some really beautiful skies in the spring, but it’s pretty dull here in the summer. Just blue all the time….

  3. They are beautiful photos. I can’t get my camera to take pictures like that, it is useless (or I am!) as soon as the light goes away.

    Actually I could take much better pictures with my old analogue camera, but nobody uses film anymore do they? Now I am giving away my old school tendencies…

  4. Wow so nice photos! You are truely amazing photographer.

    One question- You had put up similar kind of photos some days ago right? Or its just my imagination?

    Hey Zhu!

    Girl, your ability to grasp the magic of the skies is incredible!
    I have only one word to describe this photos: Superb!!!

    My favourite pic is “Blue Sunset”…what a beautiful tone of blue (it is almost like indigo, isn’t it?)!

    Well done, darling! 😀

  6. @bluefish – I try to take it with me as much as I can, I missed too many great pictures!

    @Shantanu – Thank you!

    @Linguist-in-Waiting – Nothing special… just a digital camera, no flash.

    @Jemima – I have bigger version if you like!

    @kyh – Thanks! It’s just a small digital camera I bought a couple of years ago… Kodak.

    @Aiglee – I know, aren’t sunsets beautiful here!

    @Scarlet – I’d sell them to a magazine, but I haven’t heard from them yet 😆

    @shionge – Glad you enjoyed them!

    @sir jorge – France doesn’t have these kind of skies, it’s grey most of time… I really started to look at the sky in Canada.

    @CM-Chap – Thank you!

    @Seraphine – Night skies are wonderful too. I’ll post some pics later on.

    @diesel – Well, right now, I’d love to see blue – been grey for a few days!

    @johnada – Pessimistic you… That said, come to think of it, I saw some weird circular things flying when taking those pics… 😆

    @expatraveler – You must have some great sunsets by the sea as well.

    @Seraphine – White clouds are just bad weather for UFO.

    @Liz – I use digital and no complicated settings… just lucky!

    @Annie – Yes, I did. If you click on the “sunset” tag (or snapshots) you will see a couple of other “skies pictures posts” 😉

    @Celine – We are blessed with great skies here!

    @Ulquiorra – The plugin wasn’t supported in WP 2.6 apparently… gave me troubles, had to remove it.

    @Max Coutinho – Thank you for the praise!

  7. Hey Zhu, I am such Dumb*** I should have tried that tag to find out more relevant pics 🙁

    I liked all the pictures there. You are marvelous photographer!
