my minnesota skies ~ summer solstice edition

Happy Summer Solstice!  Today is the longest day of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere, when the sunlight graces us with its presence much longer... except where I live where it has been raining for the past three days.  So to celebrate this day, I am sharing some photos I took from our house before.  My Minnesota skies are always awesome, but some days just leave me in awe.

I love living in Minnesota.  The three years since I moved here have shown me a state of incredible beauty that has so much to offer, if only we get that image most Americans have of Minnesota-- the movie Fargo-- out of our heads.  In reality Minnesota is a state of magnificent natural beauty and one of the things I love the most is the sunset and sunrises.  Holy smokes!  I have never seen such sky, and this is quite a statement from someone who grew up in a Caribbean island.  The following are images that I have taken from our house.  And every time I am blessed to witness such beauty I thank the Lord for the gift of sight, and appreciation for nature.  This is my Minnesota skies.
