I like walking down the street and capturing the sky on camera. I could take a photograph from the same spot every day, and each time it would look different. The photographs below, were captured while out walking.
Here is a link to my Honey Cake Recipe. It is a great addition, any time of year, but especially so for Break-the-Fast, after Yom Kippur.

The photographs above were taken in my neighborhood and while out and about on various days, while walking.
May your skies be filed with illumination and loveliness. Shabbat Shalom!

When you find yourself looking for guidance or religious comfort, do you reach out for answers or suggestions, or look up at the sky and pray, or do you seek the answers elsewhere?
I find the sky to be a great source of comfort and reflection, and am often awed by its beauty, from the tones and contrasts, to the weather conditions, the sky never looks the same from one day to the next, especially if you are standing in the same spot, looking upwards.
Try it, you might be surprised and find comfort or a sense of serenity.
It is Skywatch Friday, today. Visit here for more sky scenes.
