Late October Skies

Sunset past the barn

Sunrise over the front pasture


Sunset from our driveway

Rain not quite reaching the ground

We only got sprinkles out of these clouds, but another front came through a few days later and gave us some soaking-in moisture.

Linking to Skywatch Friday

I have probably always enjoyed and appreciated the sky, but it seems that from the moment I picked the camera back up (several, several years ago) I have noticed and appreciated the sky in all its glory with a greater awe.

These are beautiful scenes.

Georgette Sullins said...

Beautiful spaces and sunset.

Brk Trt said...

Love the first one.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Those clouds look pretty foreboding for mere sprinkles!

I like the third one, too. It looks like a big cloud-road!

Molly TheWally said...

Lovely and the rain clouds look so moody. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Julia said...

Beautiful chronicle of October's changing skies. It's good you did eventually get a good rain .. kind of frustrating I would imagine to see the rain too far up there to do any good.

By the way, I saw quite a few Whistlers yesterday and thought of you right away. Realizing I did not view your Wednesday post. So, had to make a quick stop over just now and see what you shared. LOVE 'em perched in the tree branches...afterall, I think that's their 'style'...a tree duck.
