Chasing Clouds at Shady Brook Farm



It's nice to have plenty of farms and beutiful country between my home and the city.

-I hope to get a reflection meme up and running with in the next couple of weeks. I need to figure out what day of the week to do it, how to use Mr. Linky and how to make a banner for it.

What a contrast with the last cityscapes. Those trees seem never ending, living in a hilly region it's strange to me to see that far in a field. The title is perfect for the theme with all those cotton clouds!

Martha in PA said...

Beautiful!

Let me know if there is something I might be able to help you with the new meme!

Sunny said...

Simply beautiful scenery. Love the clouds!

Yes well, see? That's what I mean. What a gorgeous blue sky. NOW I'm jealous. Very jealous.

Cezar and Léia said...

Very nice indeed! Here we've got something similar, very close to the city but also just a few blocks away we can find farms, horses and so on...
God bless you!

Ah, now that is the life to live under that sky. Very lovely.

Lois said...

Those clouds are gorgeous! I'm looking forward to the new meme. That's a great idea.

Babooshka said...

Those clouds are just so perfectly naturally arranged.

Ebie said...

Wow! Lovely skies and I love the title.
P.S. Please let me know if you are coming my way, so I can give you some tips for your trip here. I think it is also a great idea creating your own meme. My daughter created our badges, so you can ask her and she could help you out.

Beautiful sky images!

Great photos!!

RuneE said...

Some of the better sky/cloud pictures I have seen for a long while - and with interesting foregrounds. Polarization filter?

PS Try MckLinky instead - it seems more stable. Give me a hoot when you have decided and I might drop by from time to time.

imac said...

Hi James, Amazing photos in both your blogs, like these sky pics, and like these carts by the fields.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your most kind comments.

San said...

The immensity of those skies--so uplifting. (No pun intended.)

Yes, you are lucky to have such beautiful sky country between your home and the city.

Peter said...

Definitely different from your previous city photos ... but somehow, the sky is almost the same!

Lily Hydrangea said...

James your landscapes are wonderful.
& what a great idea for a meme! I look forward to participating.

Linda said...

Coming from a farming area I'm as interested in the crops in the fields as in the lovely puffy white clouds. This looks like maize with some pretty young plants - will they really have time to bear a crop before winter?

Tinsie said...

These photos are beautiful! I love the blue of the sky in combination with the green of the fields.

Jacob said...

That part of Pennsylvania is so beautiful! Your photos do it justice!

Carol said...

James, weekend reflections....could post on sat or sun...just a thought...
