SkyWatch

A storm rushes across the fields.
For a brief moment a few rays of sun escape the dark clouds.

Hello Marnie. My name is Lisa. I have seen your comments on Anico, Nature Trail and Flydragon's posts. Your pictures are great. I always love nature shots. That's mostly what I try to do, but sometimes I just can't get out to get the good shots, so I get stuck photographing things around the house. Hope to see you stop by my blog soon.

Anita said...

Gorgeous! "Blue skies" are what we all seem to want to achieve, but nothing makes a sky (or life!) more beautiful than a few clouds!

Thanks for stopping by Prairie Visions!

walk2write said...

These clear days and cool temps make sky-watching irresistible. It's even difficult to pay attention to the road when I'm out on the highway. The clouds, the amazing brightness, the brilliant blue can put me in a trance if I'm not careful. Look out, fellow Illinoisans!

Max-e said...

I hope you didn't get wet at all. Or did the cloud pass over before the heavens opened?
