Seasons in the Pecan Orchard

I'm getting quite a collection of photos taken in the pecan orchard that surrounds our house. Be sure to click on any of the photos to see a slightly larger version.

These first four are winter sunsets.

The next two are of sunrise after rain on two different February mornings.

This one is looking across the road at a neighboring orchard during a February storm. Look carefully and you'll see the double rainbow I was trying to capture.

And here we are in May, when the trees are flooded with irrigation water. First, during the day:

... and at night. I'm surprised that the sky looks as light as it does in this photo. It was pretty dark outside when I took the picture.

This last one is my favorite orchard photo, also the header of this blog for June. Every time I step outside I see something wonderful that makes me always thankful that we live in this beautiful place.

Your Pecan Orchard pictures are fantastic! My favorite is the first sunrise picture with the pretty sky color reflected in the water.

Oh, Clair, those pictures are making me SO want to be there NOW. We're working on it, slowly but surely, and I am soooooooo impatient.
