Skies Around the World

How often do you look at the sky while travelling?  It may be the very first thing you look at in the morning while wondering what to wear, or where to go that day.  Wondering if a storm is brewing or whether you need to pack an extra layer or, gazing at the sunny blue sky and feeling excited for the day ahead.  There are also the times when you look at the sky to capture a beautiful sunset or sunrise, both in your mind and on your camera.  You might look up to see a breathtaking view in the distance or a bird flying ahead.

Or sometimes, simply to admire the clouds and think how lucky you are to be travelling.

Similarly to my Sunrises and Sunsets post, here is a collection of sky from around the world.

  1. I love the sky. It is always unique and can be so dramatic, or sombre or even playful. It’s a force of nature we don’t always appreciate. I love storms cloud formations and the colours. So magical. Thanks for the thought provoking post – a wandering memory

  2. As always some amazing photos! I’ve definitely become more admiring of skies since moving to Scotland – I find myself looking up at it all the time! You can often tell how cold or windy it’ll be if you can physically see the clouds moving haha And you climbed Villarica?? Awesome – definitely one on my Chile bucket list!x

    • Thanks Camila! Yep, I always do a quick sky weather check 😉 The climb up Villarica was a tough one, wow! You have to use crampons and a stick etc but climbing up a volcano was pretty amazing! I hope you get to do it, you even see the lava at the top too 🙂
