Sunny with Clouds

 Looking southerly at farmers fields in January

When I first looked at this photo taken last week I was totally surprised.  I had remembered taking this photo on a bright, sunny day.  But here I could see only clouds! But then I checked some more photos and discovered...

Same field with more sky showing

that low clouds were hanging behind this small hill. And most of the rest of the sky really was clear blue...

Looking northerly from the exact same spot

as you can see here.

I hope the sun pushed the clouds away. Even so the photo is very nice. A bit like a Christmas card.

I quite like that first one; the sun on the snow contrasts nicely with the cloudy skies.

this sun coming and going is exactly what we have had here for 6 days now. look out the front window and see bright sun, look to the South and it is dull. our weather report is partly cloudy and no rain in sight which we need. but the temps are good and like these photos still beautiful

What a difference in the sky from the two angles. I kind of like the look of the clouds though.

Lovely winter views, and that last house, if I were out looking to buy, just from that point I'd be pretty sure it was just for me!

Your first shot is simply wonderful!

VP said...

Perfect winter scenes, my favorite is the first one!

Barbara Lilian said...

Fantastic shots. No clear blue skies here at the moment. It makes the snow so clear. This is my 1st time on Sunlit Sunday. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your lovely photos of your countryside.

Pamela Gordon said...

Pretty countryside. It looks that way here right now. Clear blue sky to the east, brilliant sunshine and clouds hanging on the western horizon. A change in the weather for tomorrow.

Snap said...

The clouds actually add some extra interest to these field photos, especially the vertical photo. (Well done!)

Lorrie said...

Beautiful winter scenes. It looks cold with the blue sky so clear in the last photo.

aspiritofsimplicity said...

It is a beautiful field regardless of which direction one looks at it from.

Jenny said...

The lighting in the first two pics is just perfect. Often hard to get it right in the winter. Beautiful in every way.

Lowell said...

And the moral is, when you're getting antsy or unhappy, get a new perspective! :)

Love that red farm!
