SkyWatch Friday #11

It's that time again! The kind folks over at SkyWatch are hosting another SkyWatch Friday. For loads more fantastic sky shots, go by and visit them.

We went down to the farm my husband manages today to watch them harvest some of the soybeans. Jillian had her first ride on a combine with PopPop so she was excited. It was around noon so the sky looked really washed out in this photo.

These are some of the storm clouds that rolled through from Hurricane Ike.

I love the farm/soybean photo. I love farms. And the Ike clouds are very moody and interesting. Excellent capture!

Storm clouds actually make great photos don't they? And I love the farm photos.....I'm surrounded by farms at home and I really love living out there.

Nice catch..... Great job! Reminds me the saying,,,, We never know how high we are, till we are called to ris; and then, if we are true to plan, our statures touch the sky... Happy Skywatch! Hope you can visit my SWF entry too...

Dusty sky at harvest time. I hope the storms from Ike didn't hurt the harvest. MB

Very nice SWF shot! Hope Ike did not harm your part of the country!
Have a nice weekend!

You can tell Jillian that she beats me. I'm older than she is, and have never had a ride on a combine.

Now I'm on my way over to Skywatch for a look-see.

I enjoyed seeing the combine in the photo. Reminded me of days growing up on a farm.

Ike brought some beautiful clouds to some of us, but horrible damage to others.
