As I’ve mentioned before (and you’re probably starting to realize), I’m kind of obsessed with taking nature photos…and especially sky photos. Nature presents so many metaphors and can help you see things in a different perspective. Or maybe I’m just easily distracted because of the ADHD and nature is always there trying to grab my attention, so I fall victim to it. But, honestly…of all the things that distract me, I gotta say nature’s my favorite.
When I saw this sky scene the other afternoon, I had to capture it. The metaphor is so very in-your-face (or at least it was in mine).
Clouds come, but blue skies will come again.
As much as it doesn’t feel like it sometimes, pain is only temporary. If you can hang in there for just a little longer, things will get better and you’ll start to see the beauty in life again. Learn from your storms and you will be stronger for them. You’ll also appreciate the blue skies more for you know what it is like to live without them. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and such. 🙂
Also, aesthetically speaking, I’m just really drawn to the contrast between the central cloud formation and the blue sky on both sides of it…and the way the sun seems to be peeking through the clouds, like it’s about to bust through and completely transform the scene. Sure, there’s more metaphor there, but it all boils down to the same thing…there’s always a reason to hope. Have faith and patience and the sun will eventually break through even your darkest cloud.
