SkyWatch Friday

For this week's contribution I chose more photographs from our trip to North Dakota.

Please visit Tom, Sandy, IMAC and Klaus at the SkyWatch blog where you can see incredible photos from every part of the world.

Below we were at the farm of one of Gregg's Aunts.



Below is the road we took to the farm.


The following were taken another day when we were just driving around.

  3. It looks a bit like Oklahoma, big sky country.

    Did you see the British 100 list when you stopped by my blog?

  4. These are fine photos... I love the round hay bales sitting in the fields... those are really neat! The one with the road is awesome.. like it can go on forever... love that perspective... the sky with the red barn is a terrific contrast! Very nice indeed!

  5. That is big country. It looks plain and simple and the road looks like dirt but those kind at the smoothest of all. I would rather drive on a pasture field or smooth dirt road than on any four or six lane highway.

    My Sky Watch Friday blog is at my Canon Pixels blog. If you have time I would appreciate your having a look at the sky peeking through the oak tree leaves.

  28. Nice skies and, living on a farm myself, I always enjoy seeing those of others.
    Loved your chipmunk, my father-in-law had one that used to ambush him coming out the back door to climb up his trouser leg and search for the inrvitable peanut in his pocket.
    Those tree lobster tails on your plate! Oh how I wish!!!
