John Ruskin

John Ruskin, Modern Painters I, Of Truth of Skies 1843.

I found a connection with Ruskin’s writing since I have been observing the sky in great detail and taking time to enjoy its fleeting  and unpredictable drama and beauty.

“…there is not a moment of any day of our lives, when nature is not producing scene after scene, picture after picture, glory after glory, and working still upon such exquisite and constant principles of the most perfect beauty, that it is quite certain it is all done for us, and intended for our perpetual pleasure. “
