Auction and Awesome Clouds

This time of year, when the humidity lifts, Ohio has
gorgeous blue skies. We've had cooler weather and today
I actually had to drink coffee to warm up!
I'm sure we'll have Indian Summer come in September,
but for now, it's a welcome change to have the house
opened up and the AC off.
I worked at an auction today and snapped a few pictures
on my trip. The clouds were low and amazing!

We don't have gorgeous mountains like Mmm out west, but we do have picturesque barns and farmhouses! And we have vast horizons of farmland with acres and acres of corn and soybeans. I thought these skies would be worthy of joining Sky Watch Friday! There are some jaw-dropping skies featured there...go take a look! I even got to enjoy the clouds from my perch in the auction truck!

"May I help you?" :)

  1. Some beautiful shots, Betsy, today and yesterday.

    And I'm assuming you weren't actually driving when taking all those shots, right? Right???

  5. Mr. Fox ~ well, shhh..yes, I was driving! But as you can see, not really much traffic to worry about. One hand still on the wheel at all times, I promise! :)

  10. That's dangerous! The other day, I was on the road when some woman using her cell phone almost sideswiped my car. I dropped my Sausage McMuffin and spilled half my cup of coffee, but luckily, I didn't drop my cigarette, too!

  11. Mr. Fox ~ did the coffee burn you? Maybe you could sue the woman AND Micky D's! :)

  12. Just a slight burn on the knee which was controlling the steering wheel while my hands were full. But thanks for the concern, doll!

    Hope your first three days of "free time" (and I use those words LOOSELY) were divine!

  31. Hey Betsy!
    I'm coming your way thanks to the gift of jewels! Mine came in the mail and I had to check out who sent the wonderful card and note pad. I think I'll just hang around here for a while, read, and learn more about you and your family.

  32. That sky is absolutely inspiring.

  33. That first pic looks like a picture postcard! The clouds are almost fake looking suspended like that!

    By the way, how did the summer round of shots go with the boys?

  34. So . . . do you suppose "snapping photos" while driving has the same penalty as "texting" while driving? A perfect time of year none the less.

  35. Almost Mr Toast clouds there1 :) Glad you don;t use your knee like Sf but an actual hand. lol.

  36. Beautiful shots.
    Blue skies and the open road. Nothing better!

  37. These are fantastic shots. This is my favorite time of year for clouds where I live too (NC).

    ReplyDelete
  38. PS I should have said for clouds against blue skies. I love clouds anyway but the deep blue skies and clouds like you capture here from the road are my favorite kind.

    ReplyDelete
