Most days, it feels like Clovis, New Mexico doesn't have a lot of scenery down here on the ground. But the sky--now that's another story. One afternoon while driving home I saw so many cloud pictures that I wanted to stop the car right there in the road.
I must tell you that another thing Clovis, New Mexico doesn't have a lot of is traffic, so I probably could have stopped the car. However, I continued driving for the remaining two minutes of my "commute" and dashed into the house (do arthritic people dash? It's an interesting visual, I know) to grab the camera and capture these pictures before the clouds moved too much.
My retired life out here on the High Plains is just chock full of these stressful situations.
Here is what I saw. If you click on the photos for details, I am sure you will see the very same things as I did:
A big jet, coming in for a landing
A fat-cheeked baby chick and a mustachioed walrus
A boomerang approaching from the left
A Douglas Dolphin WWII transport plane, also known as a C-21 or C-26
(I needed a little help on this one)
and a fancy bulgy-eyed goldfish!
For cloud pictures from around the planet, be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.
