Big Cloud Country



Yoo hoo! I am still here.

I bet you think I have great stories of the all the things I have been up to this summer. You know the typical blog stuff: do-it-yourself projects, tutorials, and recipes. A little bit of wow all typed up onto one page.  Maybe even a post about a holly-day or two.

Alas, read on, Sisters.  


I have been busy doing perfectly normal things, like laying in the middle of a pasture taking photos of giant storm clouds rolling through.

Do you find it at all odd, that I might run down the lane with a camera, in the wind and impending doom? No one nearby but my dear old hound dog? Do you see a hint of crazy in these photos? Remember, this is Alberta, we do like to talk weather here.
 
I looked around while the smell of rain settled in my nose and thought about the bales out east that caught fire because of lightning striking out of the sky. I realized I was probably the tallest thing out in that prairie grass and thought it might be best if I hit the ground.  No, these pictures weren't taken at a different angle for dramatic effect, they were taken with survival in mind.


Thank you to those of you who sent a note my way to check in on me. I hope to be back to my irregular posting soon.

Miss you, sweet friends.

Just yesterday I was blog-stalking you to see if you are still around. :) I missed you. Enjoy that summer weather up there before winter sets in, my friend.

Hmm I have been absent a lot myself this summer as well. Cool shots, I too like to go out and take storms shots....sometimes even get my hubby to come but he chickens out pretty easy

We had a storm with clouds like those, too. Very unusual.

Good to hear from you. Glad you are safe and well. :-)

I remember laying in the grass before I had to worry about fire ants...

Have a wonderful, blessed weekend! ♥

Hi Cheyenne!! Missed you! But wow. So busy here too. Hard to find time to write.

You've been missed, friend! I have a fenced in yard and am surrounded by trees, and if I lived in a wide-open expanse, you wouldn't be the only one running out in the midst of the brewing storms, chasing it down with a lens. The photos are captivating. Its so good to hear your voice!

Beautiful photos. Those are some amazing clouds

I've missed you and have been wondering how you've been up there in the north country! It's hard not to be fascinated by these clouds. They always remind me of the movie Independence Day, when the alien ships are about fly out of the clouds. Silly, I know. I hope you, your family, and life in general is going good. Can't wait to hear more from you.
