Warmer And More Colorful Times...


It is that time of the week again, Sky Watch Friday. Please take the time to click the link to the left to enjoy sky watch photographs from all over the world, the staff of sky watch are to be commended for the fantastic job they do each and every week.

First off please don't forget to click on the photograph it will get much larger. This was taken the beginning of November last year when my son and I took a road trip looking for things to shoot. This pretty spot was found along the Cumberland Highway between Pleasant Hall and Roxbury in Franklin County Pennsylvania. With the cold weather and grey skies I really miss the blue and white when I look up. Come on summer time.

What a beautiful shot! Nice to remember that there are other seasons. This white world of the moment is just a passing thing.

Beautiful scene, I like the bank of cloud coming over the horizon.

Come on, summer - indeed. It's photos like this that keep me going through the long cold winter. And thanks for the reminder to click - well worth it to see this one in a larger format.

Mate, your photography is pretty darn good. How many more skills do you have under that hat? !!

Willard said...

Beautiful shot, Brad.

Mojo said...

I had the same thought when I posted mine today. With the weather doing the things it's been doing all over the country, I figured "warm" was the order of the day.

After all, we have to keep the hope alive that winter can't last forever.

It's always fun to think back through the seasons ... especially the warm ones.
