Perhaps it’s because there are so many foggy days in springtime in Nova Scotia that each blue sky is considered extraordinary. We can’t take any for granted and each one is a wonder unto itself.
The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Reflected in the water, skies here make an impression both above and below the horizon line. Some days, the blue is mixed with grey, some days with pink.
The sky is one whole, the water another; and between those two infinities the soul of man is in loneliness.
~ Henryk Sienkiewicz
Right after taking the above photograph at dawn, I saw a young couple still in graduation dance attire drive by. Going to the beach at dawn to see the sun rise seemed like a fitting end to an already memorable day.
We all see something different when we look at the sky, projecting onto it our feelings of either loneliness, sadness, joy or contentment. Some of us look to the sky and dream hopeful dreams while others feel the weight of regrets and mourn past losses. Regardless of the land-, sea- or sky-scape, nothing matters as much as our point of view.
The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God shine through.
~ Edna St.Vincent Millay
