Matching Clouds Of Weirdness….

Alerted me to grab my camera and click click click!

DSC02984

Ominous clouds of doom…hmmm?

DSC02985

Very unusual clouds for us here in Eastern Oregon.

DSC02992

I noted the right cloud was getting larger at the top…while the left one was sort of morphing into something else?

DSC02991

I zoomed in on the right cloud, it was huge…we did not have a storm here but something unusual was going on in the heavens above! This odd cloud formation, reminded me of Close Encounters Of The Third Kind!

DSC02596

Its 90 degrees here right now…crazy hot for this time of year!

HRCG and Ellie are over and out for now…but we’ll be back:)

Happy Weekend!!!

Country Girl Views Of Spring Time Renewal

Country girl views of spring time renewal, often begins…

With the view out your windows of intense blue skies and vivid green fields.

And Ellie Belle on point as she can hear voles or field mice in the pasture…

DSC02002

Rain showers move in quickly as on cue to sprinkle the crops and the land…

DSC02021

As Melody runs for cover!

I love seeing all that looked dead a few months ago, come back alive with a new season of hope…the farmers are out in the fields again and I am out and about doing spring time clean up…it feels good to breathe deeply the smell of Spring, while working up a sweat with the warmth of the sun on my back.

Ellie And I Had….

An excellent adventure! Our first Spring walkabout!

DSC01907

It was heavenly to feel the warm sun on our backs as we hiked up the hill!

DSC02200

Winter seemed long this year with the lack of snow and our usual winter weather…instead we had blah days of gray overhead with occasional fog.

DSC01923

Thank goodness, Spring has arrived with clear blue skies as far as I can see…not a cloud in sight!

DSC01945

And Ellie found something and she is digging it!

DSC02941

I do love my clouds as long as they are like this…they are fun to capture on film!

DSC01948

And Ellie is yet digging….she is such a character!

DSC03072

Melody is shedding out her winter coat…she is so pretty this time of year as her dark red bay hair sheds out to reveal the white roan hair underneath…she is my horse of ever changing colors! She is called a Red Bay Roan, her legs remain black as does her mane and tail and her head…but her body roans out in summer and she is striking when you see her! I think she is beautiful…and yes she is my horse of course:)

And as the day began to draw to a close….

DSC01950

The incredible skies we have here during “magic time” stop me in my tracks….I’m a grabbing my camera!

Golden Days Of Summer….

Golden days of summer is dedicated to those dealing with freezing temps and bitter cold…along with snow and ice…and nasty winds producing impassable drifts…in other words Old Man Winter.

SONY DSC

I gathered a few favorite photos from last summer and fall…I hope they will warm you up with some encouragement that soon…those warm days of summer will return!

Our patio is our hang out place during summer months…

I miss you kitty girl…my sweet Min-Mouse…forever you are in my heart…and someday we will be together again my sweet kitty angel girl.

SONY DSC

My flowers last summer went viral…and were amazing!

DSC05798

 And Ms. Ellie Belle…she is with me all the time. She is 100% Australian Shepherd and I am her herd…

DSC06374

She seeks to protect me so she always walks in front of me checking things out…and she goes into defensive kill when she senses danger of any kind. We love this girl lots…she has a beautiful heart like Minnie…I think Minnie sent her to be with us.

SONY DSC

Here’s hoping the spring and summer of 2015 will be warm and beautiful with incredible skies and weather!

Springing into springummer with a wide-angle view of life…

We must be in a time warp as it feels like early May here! Today it was 67 degrees in Juniper Canyon…my trees have budded out and our grass is green!

DSC01806

Crazy weather has changed so much from when I was growing up here.

DSC01847

I’m not complaining as I like the warmer days with my new WIDE angle perception and view of life…hmmmm?

WB wanted me to have a wider perception on life so he bought a new lens for my camera!!! I am so excited to go out and play with it! It will be perfect for landscapes…the skies are clearing, green grass is a growing like crazy each weird warm day…stay tuned!

DSC00999

As the afternoon sun was setting…I noticed it seemed it was setting in the East instead of the West…what? I grabbed my camera and ran outside in my slippers…snap snap snap!

DSC01000

Looking back over my shoulder, I saw incredible skies filled with fiery orange colors…Holy Cow! That is the roof of the house to the right that you see and God’s glory above!

DSC01005

I ran off the patio in my slippers towards the big hill behind the house…it was cold but, as a photographer I’m gonna get that shot no matter what!

DSC01010

I was so pumped! It was incredible to see, as the light and colors kept changing by the seconds!

DSC01006

Whoop Whoop Whoopee Cool!

DSC01019

I would have loved to get my boots on to climb the hill but time was short!

DSC01022

I grabbed one last shot behind the house….

DSC01020

Already the light was fading across the road…the sun was down except on top of the hill.

DSC01018

The lights of home welcomed me back, it was time, as my slippers were soaked!

SONY DSC

Our snow has been slowly melting the last few days! But we are under another winter storm advisory for a combo of snow, sleet and freezing rain tonight through Monday…I hope this storm misses us!
