One of the things I enjoy most about travel is the chance to experience a brand new view during very normal moments. I’m sure most of us have been disappointed by a sub-par hotel room with an uninspiring view of the parking lot but I don’t take pictures of those mistakes… I do however take pictures of wide open skies and landscapes in new-to-me colors.
One mile from my home, in any direction, the view is pretty much guaranteed to be dominated by trees. As my ideas for this post started to come together I stepped outside to take a few photos trying to find the sky through the trees.
Don’t get me wrong, I love trees and the shade they offer but every once in a while I really want to see an open horizon.
John, Ryan and I spent last week away from home for a long awaited family vacation. Thursday’s forecast was for a very hot day but we woke up early and drove to my Aunt’s house in hopes of a short hike before the heat sent everyone indoors. Our reward was finding ourselves surrounded by new terrain and uninterrupted views of bright blue sky.
Open sky is something I always look for when travelling, what is on your list?
