The challenge word this week at http://www.lensday.com is “fire”. I don’t have any pictures of fire, but I do have one of a sunrise that looks like fire, so I decided to share it.
I shot this picture of the little red barn on my way home this afternoon. About an hour later, we had a thunderstorm pass through. Shortly after that, I took a ride to town and shot the other 3 pics along the way.
Well, it appears I posted this too soon in the day, because around 7 P.M., I went into the kitchen for something and looked out the window and saw this cool cloud with what looks like a hole in it, so I went out with the camera to get a pic or two.
Then, about 8:30, just before sunset, I looked out the window and saw this awesome-looking monster cloud to the east, so, once again, I set out with the camera to capture it.
Yes, today was just one of those great days for taking cloud pictures. I’m very thankful that I was able to capture them all on my camera.
Ah, boys and their toys. This post is in response to the challenge word,
“Automobiles” at Lens Day. I took this picture last year on March 24.
This same field right now is still covered with snow. Last year I found,
and took pictures of, the first spring wildflowers on April 21.
I’m gonna have to wait much longer than that this year.
I chose to highlight my “furry kids” for todays post.
The challenge word for Lens Day this week is “comfort”.
In the summer we keep a plastic pool filled with water
for our dog, Axl to cool off in. During a game of fetch,
he will occasionally jump in the pool and lay down
for a few minutes, till he cools off, then he’s ready
for more fetch.
These are our 2 cats, Jack and Earl. That’s Jack on
the left and his sister Earl on the right. Yes, Earl is
a girl, and yes, I knew she was a girl when I named
her Earl. I just thought it would be funny to name a
girl cat Earl. These 2 cats are the biggest love
sponges I have ever seen. I think they look so sweet
when they snuggle up together and sleep.
