Arizona Skies

Foto Friday ChallengeArizona may be hot and dry, but, it does have amazing skies…  And, the sunrises and sunsets…almost make the heat worth it.  (I said almost!)  So, this week, I thought it would be fun to participate in Rebecca’s Foto Friday Challenge, because the theme was “Sky/Clouds.”  But, my problem was the opposite of Rebecca’s…all week there was hardly a cloud in the sky!  (I know, don’t you feel sorry for me?)


These particular pictures aren’t the greatest, and they certainly do not showcase the beauty that I have seen in the past…But, even though it didn’t work out as well as I would have liked this week, it did inspire me to think about how I will try to capture the next beautiful sky!  And, I guess, that is the whole point of a photography challenge




“Look at the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds, which are higher than you.” ~Job 35:5




This is an older picture. (If you’re from around here, you’ll already know that, because cotton isn’t in season anymore.)  But, I love how the cotton sort of resembles clouds!




For more (and better) pictures from this week’s Sky/Cloud Challenge, go visit Rebecca over at Renaissance!  And, if you have some great Sky/Cloud shots of your own to share, be sure to link up and join the fun!


  1. Indeed, that is precisely the point! Love the cotton…I would love to see that firsthand.

    Your sky pictures are so blue….I imagine there is a lot of sky in Arizona 🙂
    I am kind of hemmed in by a narrow valley and mountains. I also really like the cotton field. I have never seen one in person… pretty with all the puffy white balls of cotton.

  4. Love the verse…I shared that same one with my cloud pictures! Pretty sky and clouds.

  5. Love the wispy clouds in the first two–so pretty!

  6. Oh, so that’s what blue skies look like. I’ve nearly forgotten. We’ve had some pretty overcast skies in these parts lately.

    Glad you could joint the Foto Friday fun!!!

  7. You did a great job! I love the cotton. 🙂

  8. Where can we find the cotton in Az? We’ve seen it when we were stationed along the East Coast, but not since we’ve been in Az.

    Love the wispy clouds. Az has some beautiful skies.
