The Seasons


As the summer continues to heat up I often find myself on "sky watch". Searching for a dark cloud, an overcast sky, or the blue mist that never seems to reach the ground. What does sky look like this time of year above your home?

  2. Very beautiful shots and wonderful texturing! Our sky looks pretty stormy every afternoon this time of year...and now with Isaac rolling in we are getting rain almost 24/7.

    1. I have to say I have lived on a ranch and a farm with a windmill. It's a nice welcome home to see from the distance.

  13. I love to watch how the sky changes day to day. I think my boys are tired of my telling them how amazing the sky is every day! Love your windmill. My father in law loves windmills and has a big collection of photos of every one he's found. There really aren't any around here except for the small one in his yard!
