On this Skywatch Friday, I wanted to share something taken from my travels last winter. The image was taken at Jantar Mantar, in Jaipur, Rajasthan, which was built in the early 18th century and happens to be one of the most significant, comprehensive and the best preserved of India’s historic observatories!

After I posted this image, I observed something interesting. Tell me, what do you see in this picture?

Depending on where you focused, you could have either seen the Earth, if you look at the rod, in the centre of the image or the sky, if you focused on the structure below. As always, pictures, as much as the events that happen around us, are open to interpretations. It is up to us to see things and process that information. Sharing here a lovely quote by Richard Bach, who once said:

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed… It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.

Wishing you all a great, relaxing weekend ahead and leaving you to enjoy the bigger picture that you have set for yourself in the week/days ahead. Relax, take it easy and recharge yourselves for the week ahead. Until next week, goodbye! 🙂

Linking this with #Skywatch Friday that brings you some of the most stunning views of skies from across the world.
