My World Tuesday

A couple of shots taken on the west and east edges of my hometown in Okieland.

This picture was taken looking from the cemetary towards the town and shows one of the many churches. It was an incredibly windy day and the clouds were quite stunning in their formation and speed of movement across the sky.

The second picture was taken at our town's artesian lake, looking from the shore to the little island, on a clear blue sky day. Our local firemen shoot our July 4th fireworks from this island, so we can enjoy the reflections over the lake.

To join in the fun go to My World Tuesday

I love the lake. What a great place for fireworks. I think I would just love to grab a lawn chair and sit there reading for hours.

What a nice toutch with the thoughtful firemen using the lake as a mirror for the town's delectation.

Everything is so flat, even the bottom of the clouds. You can see so far. Nice captures. I like the island.
