Sky over Potato Farm/Sky Watch

The sky over this East Gwillimbury potato farm looks cold because it is. Brrr. The potatoes were harvested months ago.

The owners are probably either in Florida or on their way. LOL

To see tons of gorgeous skies visit the Sky Watch Website and click on Mr. Linky: http://skyley.blogspot.com

The sky looks huge in these pictures, beautiful.

RuneE said...

In Florida an missing all this beauty? Send them a potato.

PS I'm not a pilot - you are looking across a small fjord towards the island that protects the outer coast. The clouds were over the ocean.

Hildegarde said...

Beautiful and cold, the sepia scene is super too.

Ruth said...

It does look cold because it is so cold already! I like the pink tones in the sky...adds a wee bit of warmth.

Deborah Godin said...

Yikes - if they missed any spuds, they must be rocks by now! Wonderful shots, even if they do make my teeth chatter!

Carletta said...

They definitely don't need the watering system there in the field do they!
Beautiful skies!
It looks sooooo... cold.

bowledover said...

Thank goodness for (small Murphies also known as mercies),that the tattes were in last week, or the price would hike again.
Lovely pictures. Have a warm week inside.

Darla said...

Beautiful snow on the trees and the trees against that beautiful sky!

crete said...

I have to say that it really does look very cold there.

Take care

PJ said...

That's cold looking! We're hitting the thirties here in Florida. I guess that's pretty balmy for y'all.

fishing guy said...

EG: That looked like some of the scary skies we had this week.

mirage2g said...

Looking at the frst photo, one knows which side of the globe the snow comes from- Amazing that only one side has them! Cold but beautiful!

Jan said...

Man, the potatoes wouldn't stand a chance. Great photos, I love everything about them.

Photo Cache said...

Brr indeed, but what a sight. What a glorious tree too. Loving the tree.

Merisi said...

The first one is heartbreakingly beautiful (well, it really touched my heart), the other one too. Each of the previous posts I looked at are of an exquisite beauty! Thank you for sharing your world with us.

Arija said...

The top shot is justst magical. Love the way it is framed and those snow painted trees.
Good luck to them in Florida or Hawaii or where ever they are.

Raven said...

Exquisite as always. I love the sepia shot below also... Gorgeous.

Happy skywatching:-)

Pekka said...

I just come to sauna and now I´m freezing when I see this could fields. But your shot is very good and interesting. ;-)

Kay said...

I can almost feel the chill. Very wonderful SWF entry!

Small City Scenes said...

Oh so beautiful. the wind must have been blowing when it snowed. Look at the trees. How cold? Brr!
Great shots. You are excellent. MB

Kathiesbirds said...

These photos and the subject matter could have been taken and written in Northern Maine! Oh, you bring back memories. My son still lives there and I suppose it looks like this out his window right now! Though it's warmer here in Tucson, the sky is overcast and it only warmed into the low 60's today. I have a long-sleeve shirt on as a result. I'm sure you don't feel sorry for me! ;)

Catherine said...

I wonder how that snow stays just on one side of the trees trunk ?
That gives a wonderful effect.
It depends on how long is the winter, but I would have loved to stay a little in front of such landscape...... and leaving for Florida just after .

At least you get your greeting cards.

Denise said...

Oh yes it looks very cold but so beautiful. Great photos, snow on the ground is incredibly pretty. We haven't had any yet. It is cold though, I am heading for the hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is my friend in the wintertime ;)

Geoff said...

Rose said...

You should have named it Cold Skies over potato farm--you look at the sky and can just feel the cold.d

Mary said...

Beautiful!!! Looks like you had some windy weather -- the snow is plastered to one side of all the trees. Brrrr.

Quiet Paths said...

Winter has definitely arrived. Still this is a peaceful scene. Cold but calming! ~shiver~

Carver said...

Those are both so beautiful to me. I hope we get a decent snow this winter where I live. Some winters we do and some we don't. At least I can enjoy your beautiful shots of the winter wonderland.

Pretty Life Online said...
