The Gallery – Sky

My Instagram feed for the last few weeks has been mainly filled with photos tagged with #skyporn, #cloudporn and #foodporn which judging by Tara’s gallery topic this week is very similar to hers. However when I went looking for photos of the sky I realised that I have already used most of them in blog posts. You may notice a bit of a recurring theme here but I love sunrises, potentially more than sunsets. In either case the beginning and end of the day are great moments and also great times to take photos.

But I do have a couple I don’t think I’ve used before and if I have then they are clearly just so good they need using again! The first is from a business trip earlier in the year, we found ourselves with time to kill in Paris after a meeting finished early so did what every person should do and headed for the Eiffel Tower. A pretty perfect spring day to visit as well.


My second photo is from our New Zealand trip last year, some breathtaking scenery and perfect clear skies to go with it. This is one of my favourite photos from the trip, it’s in Greymouth and the beach was right next to our pitch on the campsite. If you’d like to see a few more from that trip then just click here.


  1. Love that last shot – what is it about New Zealand skies and the clarity of light – so darn beautiful! Also love the Paris one – takes me back to…. 1995 – that’s the last time I was there! Too long ago!

  2. A great angle on the first shot capturing the tower and sky so well. I like the reflection in the water on the second and the colours x

  3. Great photos and so different. I love the shadows on the Eiffel Tower, great capture. The sky in New Zealand is simply breathtaking. Gorgeous.

  4. I love the New Zealand photo – its like one you should have on a massive canvas

  5. The NZ photo looks like a painting. Which is a good thing. Very lovely 🙂
