As some of you may or may not have heard, we awoke to a small earthquake here in the midwest. I had done been up about 3 times with the kitties, so was not asleep. It was a strange feeling to say the least. It took me a second to realize what was going on. There is a railroad about a block away and a train had just passed, and while we feel the vibrations, this was just a bit more. Then it dawned on me what I was feeling.

Anyway, I just got up and stayed up, went for a drive and the first three are what is for Sky Watch Friday--if you want to join go see Tom
And these shots is my entry for Project Looking Through....see Mark if you want to join.

Earthquake - was this your first?

I love the middle Skywatch photo.

All of the PLT photos are very good. Are the first two of a covered bridge?

Wonderful post!

Great photos, specialy the first one.

Earthquakes are nerve wracking! I'm glad it was too small to do any physical damage. It was to our benefit though that you were awakened. These are beautiful shots that you've posted.

Wow...I love all of the photos! I love barns and the first SkyWatch is one of my favorites!

Fortunately never felt that feeling of the earthquake. Perhaps neither will feel here where I live. But the fact is that we all feel some sort of sensation, wherever they are.

Some feel earthquakes, other hunger, other social inequality, other cold ... other war.

These moments serve to reasoning about what really is worthwhile.

Beautiful photos
