Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Entering a Storm in Horse Country~












Be sure to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at: http://skyley.blogspot.com/
Driving through horse country just a few miles from Tingsgrove and entering a darkened sky, preceding a thunder storm was the scene of the day several times in the past two weeks.  We have had three months of record breaking heat in the Kentuckiana area.  The past several days, were marked with much needed rains along with thunder storms, which have also cooled the temperatures a bit~

  13. Fabulous compostion and contrast here. Well seen! By the way, the header photo of the hawk is so gorgeous, but I can hardly read the type. I suggest not all caps and a more contrasty color. Thanks!

  20. Sweet views to celebrate summer and sky watching, the horses look all relaxed there in the fields. Isn't it fun spying views and thinking - that's a great sky watch.
