Blue, Blue July Sky for Skywatch

I didn't do anything to the color in these photos--this is the color of our blue, blue July sky here in the Mesilla Valley of New Mexico.

Blue sky with sunflowers

Blue sky with onion harvest

For skies of all colors all over the world, be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.

Gorgeous skies, fantastic capture! The colors are stunning in the first shot and I love those big, puffy clouds in the second one! Hope you have a wonderful day, Clariz!

I TOTALLY believe you and that color is ONE of the reasons we are spending the rest of our lives in New Mexico! Pretty, pretty.

Happy weekend ahead Clairz.

Happy SkyWatch Friday!

I don't think I've ever seen such a blue sky.
The caption of the second shot must be unique!

I love the contrast between the blue sky and sunflowers. Nice clear blue sky and then came some clouds.

Can't beat a bit (lot) of blue!.... we've seen some now for a couple of weeks so that could be all for this year!....:(

Thanks for sharing your blue skies, and your visit!....:)

Great photos! Beautiful blue sky in that first shot and I like the blue and yellow together.

Those yellow sunflowers look so vibrant and cheerful against the blue sky. I love your header sky photo too!

The blue certainly is gorgeous!

LV said...

Whatever is going on in Mexico, the sky is still a bright blue. Those flowers just gives it the right touch.

I love those blue skies, we have them like that here in Colorado too. The hike in your post below looks awesome, but I certainly wouldn't try it in midsummer. I tend towards the higher-altitude hikes this time of year, as they're much cooler.

Incredible color! I love the yellow against the blue, blue sky!

ONION HARVEST!! I want fresh onions!

And pictures of the TORNADO!

That blue sky is a good contrast to the sunny faces of the flowers. Is it hot there?

clairz said...

Barb, it is hot, hot, hot here.

Ben, the neighbors agree my "tornado" was probably a microburst--the storm was fierce, the damage quite localized (just our road). Pix coming on the blog next week.
