Looking to the sky

When the sky is looking good, I know it’s going to be a great day to do some photographing. Trouble is, here in the upper Midwest, the sky can change very rapidly. Case in point is this photograph of Cana Island Lighthouse in Door County, Wisconsin.

Just a half hour before this photo was shot, the sky was completely gray and it was snowing. In October, no less. My wife and I arrived at the lighthouse, and by the time I had found a spot to set up the camera, the snow squall had moved out over Lake Michigan and provided a dramatic backdrop to the light tower.

The sky provides constantly changing moods and you never know for sure what you’re going to get on a given day. Sometimes it works out if you take a chance and are patient, sometimes it doesn’t. Life is like that.

Deep thought: Speaking of the sky, the Bible says that Jesus lifted his eyes to heaven when He prayed. So how come we bow our heads and close our eyes?

Great photo. I wish the skies changed as quickly in the UK.
