Lens Artists Photo Challenge #250 – Skyscapes or Cloudscapes

For this challenge Amy has asked us to share our cloudscapes over land, sea, or cities, or just clouds. For the header image I chose an image of cloud covered mountains as we were leaving Valdez, Alaska on last years Alaska cruise.

The rest of these images include storm clouds, rainbows, and clouds over the Mississippi River at sunrise.

Many thanks to Amy for challenging us to focus on Skyscapes and Cloudscapes. You can find her original post at Lens-Artists Challenge #250 – Skyscapes or Cloudscapes

Lens Artists Photo Challenge #248 – Mood

I chose a few photos that portray happy moods for Sophia’s challenge of Mood. In the first image I was celebrating my birthday at a restaurant at Disney World when the server surprised me with a Mickey Mouse cupcake after dinner. I was a happy birthday girl!

Our oldest granddaughter’s first birthday cake. I can still remember how happy she was when she saw the cake my daughter made for her.
I love a parade
A night out watching the Savannah Bananas game makes all the fans happy!

Many thanks to Sofia for this challenge Lens-Artists Challenge #248 – Mood
