It's perfect! And so is the award you've won from me. Visit my blog to receive it. Congratulations.

Wonderful Sky Watch. The whole composition is great. I like the split-rail fence, too.

Willard said...

A beautiful photo that really portrays the mood of the day. The fence really sets it off. We're having gray skies and rain here too.

RuneE said...

November in a nutshell. I liked the composition very much, with the tree to the left and everything.

Brad Myers said...

Nice sky watch photo, it looks like a beautiful countryside. We have dark skies and rain here also. That time of year when we get few blue skies.

Louise said...

Maybe a bit gloomy, but I love the light on the field. Beautiful capture.

Photo Cache said...

What a beautiful countryside postcard. I am with the first commenter about the old fence. Love it.

Ivar Østtun said...

Great capture. I like this composition very much. Well done. Have a beuatiful weekend

Alvis said...

I like this picture, too. I wish I lived in a place with hillier (is that even a word?) terrain. To get photos like yours, I have to travel.

vincibene said...

Wonderful picture! It shows the melancholy of autumn.

Dewdrop said...

Oh, what a charming capture!!! I love the lines with the fence. So beautiful... I just want to walk down the lane, hand-in-hand with my honey.

Kerri Farley said...

Oh, this may be one of my all time favorites.....Absolutely gorgeous! I think grey days are beautiful in their own way!!
LOVE that fence!!

How perfectly pastural(?)!! Beautiful. I'd love a split-rail fence on our farm, but a) getting it there would become partly my job, and b) keeping it up (and mowed underneath) would become partly my job. And I have enough jobs. I'll look at yours though - it's gorgeous.

Nova said...

Nice shot!!! it is perfectly fascinating... love the sky...

We got some of that rain last night, too, but the sun just popped out. Love the old rambling fence and the pewter sky. Wonderful!

Beautiful photo!

Rose said...

Oh, I love this...it so makes me wish I was there. I didn't do skywatch. I just now did put up some sky photos, but had the post already written before I thought about Sky Watch...they aren't that great. Just moody. So just left them as a second post of the day.

Leora said...

Picturesque. Do you think by next week that scene will have a blanket of white? Our skies here have been gray and wet.

Unknown said...

Wonderful shot, love the composition.

Great photo. It almost looks like a painting.

Mojo said...

Yeah, our forecast isn't looking spectacular for the next few days either. But we should see improvement by Sunday.

Nice peaceful setting here. I'd probably go a little crazy with a dose of "quiet" that size, but maybe in moderation...

Coloradolady said...

very peaceful photo. Love it. Have a great weekend.

Jim said...

Hi Ms. T.Guide, I am thinking we missed your rain this time. We will have a dry front from north or west, earlier this week we had a lot of rain (five inches).
Happy SkyWatch, I'm doing it again this week (Little Photo Place). Not nearly as pretty as your East Gwillimbury sky but I did find sky.

Shut the window, grab a book and large cup of coffee, .......... and let's wait for next spring or maybe a little snow for fun.
Ours gets the same grey color.
Furthermore, night is falling now.
