Photo of the Week......Clouds


I'm late getting my Photo of the Week posted because my server has had some problems during our winter storms and the aftermath, so it has been difficult to receive or send messages and/or photos. Being snowed in is bad enough, but without internet???? One does get cranky!!!!!!!
Anyway, since our skies have displayed nothing but doom and gloom for much too long now, I'm having to bend the rules(if we have rules?) and use some photos I took during the summer. I was going through a watercolor "phase" and doing some cloud practices. I love this first photo where the framework of trees appears in silhouette and the clouds and fading sunlight become the focus.
The second shot is looking down the street that passes the front of my house. After almost 17 years in this house, I'm still fascinated by having so much open sky in this location. It's a pleasure to be able to appreciate not only cloud formations, but flocks of migrating geese a few times a year, a rare eclipse or meteor shower, and even the turkey vultures that frequently soar above the neighborhood looking for an easy meal.

So I hope this means your internet is back up and running? "Cranky" is such a lady-like way to describe internet withdrawal, LOL. Glad to have you back at any rate! I love that sunset shot - very dramatic!

Those shots are gorgeous Mary. You must be happy now that you are able to move about more freely after all that snow you have had.
