Shakespeare Skies, for Skywatch


It is a ghost town
Perfect for October

The skies were clear
The vistas were pure Old West

All around us we saw
Pieces of the past

The air was so clear
You could smell the history

We looked down at ourselves
and
were surprised
to find that we still looked like 
people living in the 21st century




For skies over oceans and deserts, modern places and ancient places, please visit Skywatch Friday.

You sure had some beautiful blue skies. Here the skies have been hazy, I keep wishing for some breezy weather to blow clean air our way.

'You could smell the history'--that's what I love about the clear air out west. Your photos are exceptional.

Ewok, this is pretty much what our sky looks like year round. We get terribly excited on cloudy days, always hoping for a drop of rain. Sometimes that's all we get: A drop!

Incredible blues you have there. Old Will himself would be proud to put his name to it, ghost town or not.

I notice so many ghost town now adays what happened? So no more people living and moving out? Kind of sad to look at it. But the landscape is beautiful. Happy Friday!
