SkyWatch Friday

~Life could be just a series of fates.~
~Annabella Ransom 1900~

Today, I'm sharing a couple of views from the ranch with SkyWatch Friday! And, today SkyWatch Friday begins its 5th season...amazing!

Perfectly clear blue skies are nice...but I think a few clouds always adds a lil' more interesting aspect to a photo. Hat Butte is shadowed by this afternoon cloud.

A local rancher brought a nice big herd of cow/calf pairs to graze the property across the road from us (these are just a handful). I'd much rather see this kind of new neighbor than seeing new houses going in! I love seeing and hearing these cows all day!

Enjoy your Friday...and have a GREAT weekend!! We're off to a cutting show tomorrow at Roaring Springs Ranch...see ya Sunday!

both are beautiful, but that first is amazing! Such a sense of peace and solitude about it. And as for the new neighbors, I too much prefer the cows! There is just something so peaceful about watching cattle grazing.

The vivid color in the first photo is truly amazing, I love the way the blue sky darkens at the top of the frame...what a beautiful place you live in!

Nice looking country--ought to be a few pronghorn goats out there?

How needs anything more when you have fluffy white clouds? Beautiful!

Truly blue! Lovely.

That picture is amazing and I sure agree with you, I would rather see cows than more houses! I keep telling the hubby I wish we could of had more time to look for property that had less neighbors and more land when we moved out here, but it wasn't meant to be!

Enjoyed both photos - the one of Hat Butte is gorgeous! Love the "shadow" effect. Have fun at the cutting! :)

beautiful photos - I'm with you, I'd much rather see that scene than houses across the road.
