Pumpkin Harvest on the High Plains for Skywatch Friday


The sky in that country came clear down to the ground on every side...
~Wallace Stegner


When we moved here a year ago we had to get used to the idea that we didn't have to look up to see the sky--it was all around us, right "down to the ground." We have something like 330 sunny days a year so whenever there are clouds I grab my camera and start shooting. But you might as well know that many, many of our days look like this, with clear, sunny, cloudless blue skies.

Be sure to go to the Skywatch Friday website to see photos of skies all over the world (you can see the week's photos any time after 12:30 EST on Thursday) .

That was one of the first things I noticed upon moving to Oregon after living so long in Texas. It took me a while to get used to looking up to see the sky.

Pumpkins under clear skies. ;-) The sky is almost ALWAYS like this? I can barely imagine it as we have many overcast days in Central Ontario - yep, Canada.

Perfect one for Skywatch! I truly enjoyed viewing God's handiwork.... Happy Skywatch! Hope you can visit my SWF entry too...

Migs, that's so funny! Now that we live here and are really getting to know what it's like, we're starting to think it would have been a great place to visit.

That must have been quite a change to move from New England to New Mexico. This photo is great, a very nice SkyWatch contribution.
