A Mid-October Evening

A view looking across the front hay field. Yes, these are SOOCP shots, again (straight out of cell phone).
 And the same evening, looking back down the driveway towards the setting sun.
 The sun slipping through a cloud buttonhole.
Linking to Friday's Fences

Now that I have a iPhone, I am astounded at the quality of the pictures I've taken with it. I got a couple of good Texas sky shots during my visit, but nothing like these! :-)

Those are some really great shots with the cell phone!

I am fascinated with clouds and really enjoying trying to capture their beauty with the camera. Nice job!

Dearest Theresa,
Mother Nature has a lovely way of unbuttoning her Day Garments and letting some sun rays through for you to catch! Great photos!

All Beauties!! Where is the Old Paint, and the Mules today. I thought we might be seeing more of them. That Paint is really a pretty horse.

You know that old Cowboy song, "I ride an old Paint, I lead an old Dam, I'm goin' to Montana to run a Houlihan." etc, etc. Oh I just have to sing for you once in a while!

Yeah... cell phone cameras are getting pretty good. I love the first shot, it's perfect. Mother Nature sure does provide when it comes to the sky.

SweetMarie said...

I was taking pics of the sky today while I was sitting at a red light. I thought the second photo was my favorite and then that last photo just took my breath away! Wow!!

parker said...

Really like those buttonhole shots!

Inger said...

You know me and clouds, so this was a great treat. I love the one where the sun peaks through just as it is about to set.

Annnightflyer said...

Isn't it amazing how the sky looks out here?I'm gonna miss it.

Paula said...

Love these beautiful shots.

These are excellent!!!

MarmePurl said...

# 1 is a great inspiration for a painting...and I am in the mood to get the brushes out.

Book Dragon said...

sigh, beautiful

Linda said...

Beautiful skies. I love everything about that first one...the blue sky, the white billowing clouds with the darker ones on top, the fence, the green grass...just everything. But the dramatic skies in the other two are equally gorgeous.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Beautiful images, especially considering they're soocp. My iPhone doesn't pick up on color or sun rays like this.

Carletta said...

Beautiful!
The first one my favorite!

Deb said...

I am so drawn to sky shots with clouds. And the very best ones are with a lot of contrast and sun rays peeking through the clouds--awesome, Theresa!! :)

Captured so beautifully!

My Skywatch post

Have a great weekend.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

Beautiful sky shots!

Margaret said...

Just LOVE me a Texas sky. I hope to visit San Antonio some day again (Austin is nice too) It would be fun to show the kids where Dad and I began our marriage.

Indrani Ghose said...

Fantastic captures. I like the mood in these.

Breathtaking said...

Lovely warm colours in your first photo, and nice composition.Equally
lovely skies in 2nd and 3rd.

Genie said...

How do you get captures like this with your cell phone? unbelievable. I will get one good one out of 50 where Buddy gets a good one every time he clicks. I do not get it. These are absolutely beautiful. Love the first one. genie

Debbie said...

WoW...the first one looks like it has been edited, they are all gorgeous!!

you live in a very special place!!

petspeopleandlife said...

All three photos are extra special. Very nice.

Judy said...

Gorgeous photos! If these are SOOCP, then you must be a damn fine photographer!!!

Faye said...

A little sky magic you've captured here, TWG. In the first photo love the way the dark blue clouds "stripes" those fluffy white dumpling ones. And that whole scene is just so calm and end of fall feeling.

Always try to pay attention to the sky in the morning and evening for visual rewards such as these.

Black Jack's Carol said...

You do really well with a cell phone! Such a long driveway and so much space around you! All my pre-conceived notions about Texas seem true in your photos.

Rohrerbot said...

My favorite sky shots are the ones where the sun punches a hole through the clouds.

bon bon said...

oooOOOOOOoooo, gorgeous!

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

That first shot = pretty dang gorgeous
