I hate the kind of calendar that shows me, for example, a snow scene in February. In February, I have seen plenty of snow, can see more of it any time I want by looking out my window, and really would prefer to see less of it. I'd like a calendar that shows the opposite of whatever I can see from my own window.
In that spirit, I offer a few spring skies. These first two shots are from shortly after dawn; the sky looked volcanic, but nothing much happened.
These next four shots were taken within four minutes in mid-morning, all from our back yard. The sky's color changed rapidly (all of these are the real colors, not manipulated). A storm rumbled in shortly.
