(Day 74) No two alike

It's said that no two snowflakes are alike. I'm not sure how this can be claimed unless someone's checking and comparing all the snowflakes, but I think a similar claim can be made for skies (unless of course they're perfectly blue without a trace of a cloud). As I was outside in the early evening I was reminded of a photo of cloud formations I took two weeks ago, and I decided to try to take a photo of generally the same area, but with a completely different sky. Take a look at the Day 60 (Mar. 1) photo and compare to this one. Now, two sky comparisons don't prove my point, but I think He provides endless variation for His glory and our enjoyment, as He does throughout His creation.

Beautiful sky Rick. Peace, tranquility and serenity all come to mind when I sit back and see this, I mean really see it. Thanks... wonderful photo!

@darlin - thanks; glad you enjoyed it - sunsets are one of my favourites (among many, of course ;-) And yes, very peaceful and tranquil here (broken only in the early evenings by the howls of the coyotes)

@Krista - thank you - and all I had to do was 'point and shoot'!
