Skywatch Friday


'Home Skies'

Taken looking out across the country towards the small town we call home, you can see our water and grain towers on the horizon. I loved the drama of this shot, behind us were low flying puffy cirrus clouds in a big blue sky. But off into the distance we could see where rain was falling in the west.

Never get over the vast amount of space and sense of freedom. How a aky should be.

Beautiful! We've been seeing a lot of that kind of clouds here too. Maybe I should have saved my photos for Skywatch Friday but I wasn't sure - Are the pictures supposed to be taken on the same day you post them?

Beautiful, almost, what is the word, ethereal. I love the rays of sun pouring through the clouds.

Beautiful photo.

I like the flat horizon and the vivid blues and greens. I never see flat horizons where I live because we live in the mountains on the east side of California (the Sierra Nevada mountains). You are able to see much more sky there in Oklahoma.
