Creative time – looking up at the wide sky

Creative time - looking up at the wide sky

Over the last few weeks and months there have been such a variety of different cloud shapes and colours in the sky, here are some sky themed snapshots we have taken, mostly over the north and west of Glasgow.

Please send us your photos of skies that you have looked at. They might inspire us to draw from them or write a few words too.

Even on an overcast wet day it can be soothing as well to look out the window at passing clouds, with a momentary glimpse of a seagull or duck if we’re lucky!

Thanks Alan for these dramatic and peaceful wide open photos of the West Coast of Scotland, as well as in the quiet sanctuary of a spacious Glasgow park. Some pictures below are from Sanna Bay looking towards the islands of Muck, Eigg and Rum.

Fascinating, uplifting and curious skyscapes from Margaret, the glowing lights really pull us in. The locations are to the north of Glasgow and from the silvery waters of Loch Lomond! Thank you.
