SkyWatch Friday # 5

It's SkyWatch Friday time again, didn't this week go by fast?

I had to dig back into some of my 2007 files this week cause our skies were mostly smooth gray cloudy until late yesterday, and today I've been straight up lazy about getting out to see if there was something up there brilliant enough to share.

There wasn't.

But I'm sure if you click on the SkyWatch link you'll find that there were some excellent sky views in other parts of the world. They're fine folks over there so you may want to join them and post your own SkyWatch photos.



September fog. The nights are a little cooler in September but the days are still sweltering once the sun comes up. I suppose the land gets heated enough during the day that the cooler nights cause a little condensation. I Love looking out at the fog as the sun rises.

A hot September sunset here in the dusty Mississippi River Delta.

I took this shot back in May. I love to see the fields of ripened wheat before the huge combines come to cut it all down. On the horizon, way back there, is Crowley's Ridge, the highest spot of land in the delta here in Arkansas. The ridge runs from southeastern Missouri to Helena, Arkansas, where it comes to an abrupt end. They tell me that Jesse James used to travel Crowley's Ridge when the posses would get after him in Missouri.

Really nice post. I like the sunflowers. I have some this year that are bronze in color and different shades of orange and red. I am anxious to harvest some seed before the squirrels and birds get them all.

Nice photography.
