Country Skies

I caught this amazing formation over the back fence in my garden. I think it looks like a maiden holding something her hands. What do you think?

Sometimes there are moments which are so memorable one can hardly speak of them for the beauty wrought in one's soul. In late spring Alan and I were outside working on some sets--when this amazing color began to gather in the clouds.

It was the kind of sunset that thrills the soul. I've only seen one other as glorious as this. The colors seemed to hang in the skies forever...

Then there are the clouds I often find hovering over the fields near the old farm building--my favorites are those which seem to form a porthole to another realm in time or space.

I love the beauty of our Country Skies.

I said I began to think I was Rip Van Winkle and woke up on Skywatch Friday. I had to ask Patty what day it is.

The pictures are neat and the words are thoughtful that goes with them.

Beautiful photos, sissie. I think I saw that sunset, only from here instead of there! It was a blessing.

In that first photo, I see a giant cat face in profile! The round cloud at the top is the ear, and the nose is near the bottom left side of the picture.

I like your lady too.

Sissy! I see the cat! Goodness! What an eye you have--thank you!

Lois said...

They are all lovely Beth! I see the cat too.

I totally understand about the portals to anothe realm. I feel that way too!

I did not see a cat, but I saw a hand (or palm) held out to catch an egg.

The sunset looks glorious! In the second picture, you've captured a person, or a sunset goddess, or cloud nymph - the portal is her eye and her nose is at the bottom right corner. That's all of her I can see. I think she was watching you....

I hope your dad is going to get well soon. I just talked to Patty the other day about strokes and how devastating that must be. The outcome is like flipping a coin. I will say a prayer for you and Clytie and your Dad.
