Clouds coming in....

These were taken the day after the pictures in the post below...what a difference!
I was messing around in here and happened to go look our the front door and seen the clouds coming in...I told Roger I have to go.
So grabbed my camera bag and headed out...trying to think where to go to get a good view before they were gone. Lots of times clouds like this come and go in short order. I would have preferred to go to the strip pits but was afraid they would be gone before I could get there.
So I headed north out of town to this one road...doesn't have a very interesting foreground but had a great view of the clouds.

The wind was howling like a banshee the time I was there, and I declare, if you were off balance, it could almost knock you over. Notice I say 'almost' hit with such a force that it was sort of surprising and made me feel like it could knock me over. I doubt that it really could have.

Today is another windy day, and though it is late I am going to hang out sheets here in a few minutes and hope the wind doesn't blow them away. One thing for sure, they will be dry in short order.

I have a pair of Roger's jeans to patch and have the baby quilt pin basted and need to quilt on thought I best get something posted before I got involved in anything else.

I do hope you will click and enlarge some of these to get the full effect.

Hi Rose! WOW You really got some great shots - I love those clouds & you better get those sheets blowing in the wind across the field there - hehehe - Just joking!
Happy quilting!

Looks a lot like the clouds over our place this morning and the wind was blowing and whistling tunes.

How nice Roger goes off with you to capture a few photos. My husband is like that too. ;-)

I think the foreground is just fine Rose!
Impressive rolling clouds. I love my mountains but I'm a little envious of the flat land you have to be able to catch the cloud formation in one long shot.

Great pictures...our clouds were interesting today too, I actually commented to my granddaughter about how neat they looked, she agreed :>)!

Beautiful landscape shots.

Out here I learned that a lone tree left in a huge field was generally a landmark tree. Used for surveying and and also for shade for cows. My girlfriend in Sultan had such a tree---really huge and really. The TV show Northern Exposure used her tree in one story line and were going to use it again when lightening struck it and blasted it apart well it was used in a different story line. Her 15 minutes claim to fame. LOl MB

Nice cloud shots, Rose. I can see why you took off at the double with your camera; they come and go so quickly.
