Finally Friday


Or maybe I should say "finally skywatch."  I’m reluctant to post (more reluctant about that than being a farm chik at this point), but am being sucked in by the amazing shots I’m seeing as I scroll through the skywatch list (1st time in many moons, it seems).  Your photos inspire me.  So I’ll share too.  No pond today -it’s still out there, just not recently photographed, I don’t think.  Let’s see what’s on my my desk top.

Oh yes – this was when we were clearing behind (actually in front of) our house.  We also needed wood for our outdoor furnace (that heats our home and water during the winter).  My son and I started this fire with all the scraps – the stuff that isn’t worth hauling over to the furnace.  Great fun.  We’ve had several big fires lately.  Luckily all of them controlled and contained.

Let’s see if there’s a sky picture somewhere.

Yes – this is on the way back from the in-law’s.  The horse mail box is just out of sight to your right.  I took this shot because of the amazing moon hanging out above the cloud, but my iphone camera doesn’t have a zoom (or any other feature other than "click") so the clouds are more impressive than the moon.  And the partial wooden fence adds character too.

You can see more amazing sky pictures from all over by clicking here.

    YAY!!! Imagine how happy I was to reload the SWF page and see YOU!

    I miss fires in the woods.

    The clouds are pretty. I wouldn’t have seen the moon on my own (the clouds DID steal the show), but since you mentioned it, I saw it. I definitely understand why you would want to take the picture.

    I’m OK without the pond, but it is probably pretty this time of year. Smooth surface?

    Fire has been an all-too familiar sight for us in Melbourne since 30 January. Today is another high danger day, so I have my fingers crossed ….

    HI and I am glad you are back.
    In the write up of your picture, you did not credit yourself with capturing the sun caressed distant hill tops.
    The dense greenery which we have so little of now.
    And the lovely person who took the photos for us to see. Thank you and please post more of your home area.
