Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Sunbow for SkyWatch Friday~

Be sure to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at:

Sunbow~ what else to call it, for I do not know...  The sun was coming up over the trees and while I was enjoying the beauty, suddenly over to the far right of the sunrise, these lovely colours began to slowly emerge.  They were very much like the colours of a rainbow, though more subtle, as well as there was no rainbow, no rain, no nothing, just this little area of beautiful colours arranged just for the taking of the moment, and I did~


  1. Very pretty! Sunbow is the perfect word for these little pocket rainbows!
    I have only started to see them in the last couple of years here in So Cal. . I don't think they used to be a common as they are now.

  2. Really awesome captures, Mary! I don't think I've seen one of these before. I'll be on the lookout not! Happy SWF! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  3. What beautiful skies with that splash of color commanding attention. My eyes go right to it in every shot. Great photos.

  4. Hi! These are amazing pictures... The clouds of different shapes and swirls...the sundog ~ so amazing...
    I really enjoyed your other posts. What beautiful nature photos you have here. The one of the hummingbird in mid flight enjoying the nectar from the red flower is amazing. Do you mind if I post that in my sidebar with a link back to your site? I want people who visit me to see this extraordinary photo!
    Thanks for stopping my too! ~Maria

  5. How lovely your sky photographs are! The clouds are like dancing in glee! I see a tinge of sunlight at the center. Great captures.

    P.S. I hope your daughter is doing great here in the Southland.

    God bless.
