How often do you look at the sky while travelling? It may be the very first thing you look at in the morning while wondering what to wear, or where to go that day. Wondering if a storm is brewing or whether you need to pack an extra layer or, gazing at the sunny blue sky and feeling excited for the day ahead. There are also the times when you look at the sky to capture a beautiful sunset or sunrise, both in your mind and on your camera. You might look up to see a breathtaking view in the distance or a bird flying ahead.
Or sometimes, simply to admire the clouds and think how lucky you are to be travelling.
Similarly to my Sunrises and Sunsets post, here is a collection of sky from around the world.

Stunning pics especially the one in Cambodia. Loved it 🙂
Thanks so much! Seeing that sky on the beach was such a beautiful moment especially as it was after many days of monsoon rain and gloomy sky 🙂
Oh yes, that would make it extra special. 🙂
Yes, blue skies do wonders to enhance a scenic photo! Appreciated the post.
Totally agree, they can bring so much beauty and light to a place 🙂
I love the sky. It is always unique and can be so dramatic, or sombre or even playful. It’s a force of nature we don’t always appreciate. I love storms cloud formations and the colours. So magical. Thanks for the thought provoking post – a wandering memory
Thanks for your lovely comment 🙂 Indeed I agree with you that we don’t always appreciate the beauty of the sky despite it being visible all of the time.
Check out my most recent blog image… Now that’s a dramatic skyline. Transfixing. Great post yourself
I like the skies. In Costa Rica, where I live, they are really changing. They are an important part of my photography. Good thing you pay attention to them too,
Sounds wonderful! I look forward to seeing the Costa Rican skies for myself soon 🙂 I will be there at the beginning of next year and I’m sure I’ll be lots of photographs!
Great! You will love it!
I might be biased but I love the Mexican flag photo. Really, they’re all amazing.
Thanks Mani! Bias is allowed when viewing photos 😉
Love watching the skies and how they change depending on which country I am in! Glad it’s not just me who notices…thanks for the reminder 🙂
It’s great isn’t it? Especially seeing how the height and type of cloud differs. I’m glad you liked the post 🙂
Wow. Cool post!
Thank you 🙂
What a great post to do– my favorite is probably the one in Bolivia!! Gorgeous snapshots, girl!
Thanks so much, Daisy. I love putting these kinds of posts together 🙂
As always some amazing photos! I’ve definitely become more admiring of skies since moving to Scotland – I find myself looking up at it all the time! You can often tell how cold or windy it’ll be if you can physically see the clouds moving haha And you climbed Villarica?? Awesome – definitely one on my Chile bucket list!x
Thanks Camila! Yep, I always do a quick sky weather check 😉 The climb up Villarica was a tough one, wow! You have to use crampons and a stick etc but climbing up a volcano was pretty amazing! I hope you get to do it, you even see the lava at the top too 🙂
This is such a beautiful post! Lying down and watching clouds go by is one of the simple luxuries in life!
