Sunday Afternoon / Sky Watch

Sun and clouds over Port Perry horse farm

This is what it looked like last Sunday afternoon just outside Port Perry. It was a delightful day. In the distance you can see the horses -- free to roam the farms many fenced-in acres -- think so too.

It is an interesting province, isn't it? I love the rolling hills of the area. Drive a few km north and you get Precambrian rock & trees, then, further north the BIG Lake Superior hills and rocks.We have been travelling Ontario (for many reasons) sticking closer to home, and just find amazing sights compared to My Muskoka.

see you there! said...

This photo has the feeling of a painting to me.
