Big Sky/Sky Watch
We've had so much rainy weather, many farmers are having trouble planting their fields. I have seen a few fields with corn about two or three inches high, though.

- East Gwillimbury is a rural town less than an hour north of Toronto, Canada's largest city. My family calls me CameraGirl because I take my camera with me wherever I go.
Such a wonderful view!!
Never having been a farmer, it always seems like "feast or famine" when it comes to rain.
Hmmm, aren't you posting early this week? Anyway, great Skywatch! Mine will be a farm scene too.
Very picturesque! Most of the farmers here plant cotton and greens. Lots of sod farmers near me, too. None have fields as pretty as this!
The sky is like a huge watercolour!
Well, it sure made for a beautiful picture for us to see!
Love the quilted sky!!!
Big sky indeed. This image shows how free of clutter the landscape is. I love it.
Once again I find the details on the earth most interesting. You have a knack of making the small things look great.
What a view.....great shot.
Have a fantastic weekend

A great view for sure... the farmers have cut early hay... and just got it done and moved when the rains came.. As I write this the sun is shining brightly... heres hoping.
the weather is just terrible isn't it!!! Great photo,
That is big sky. It looks so flat there. Too many hill and mountains in Western Washington. Even the valleys where it is flat don't really look too big because they are ringed by the hills. It is always so interesting to see the rest of the country.
Gorgeous shot there. Corn here is about the same height but we have been having really warm weather and 22 days without rain so irrigation is in effect. That's measureable and in Seattle too. I think we've had a little here but surely not enough. It's not like us to have no rain for so long. WE NEED IT!! MB
What a wonderful landscape! It makes me wish to ride on horseback!
Have a nice weekend!
That is a big sky and a big landscape too. Great shot. I hope the weather will cooperate with the farmers.
Almost a panoramic view, isn't it? Really nice!
Well done, nice setting.....GREAT picture!!!
Have a nice Skywatch Friday!!
Greetings from NL
Beautiful sky...the fields look like where I live...we also need less rain right now to finish planting...
Looks great. Beautifull landscape under a fairly friendly sky. I hope the farmers get some luck with the weather the coming weeks (over here we had too little rain untill april and too much in may and sofar during june which is not perfect for working the fields nor for the growth of the crops either).
Wide open spaces - This looks like someplace out west of here like Montana or Idaho! But you're in Canada, so I guess it isn't!
Thanks for sharing

beautiful country side, hope the rain stops soon
Glorious view!!! :)
I hope the rain stops soon!
Have a great friday.
An way of life that must be both hard but worthwhile. Beautiful picturesque postcard image.
Wow, that one goes beside the dictionary definition of "forever"!
Picture perfect, it could be used for advertising, a really great photo.
Enjoy your weekend!
It's been so wet here the farmers can't get the hay cut and my garden is suffering from too much water.
Wonderful shot and view! A summer day with a summer sky - I miss that!
My shots made you wonder: The shots are of the sky reflected in a glass building! I took them today - so now you know why I miss YOUR sky!
This is a lovely big sky - one for a big breath.
But I agree with your comment on my rain clouds - they're beautiful indeed, but not always when one is underneath :)
Sydney - City and Suburbs
Fantastic shot! Love the view, the skies, the composition! Perfect!
Enjoy your weekend!
Very beautiful photo! Great view!
This one takes me back to my youth in the farm country of Minnesota...
Do you think the corn will be knee-high by 4th of July?
I guess that's probably a saying popular only in the U.S.
Beautiful work. Love the colours.
Aw, I hope the rainy weather clears up soon. Wonderful picture!
And it's STILL rainy as I write this!!! Sigh.....
Now that rain is here. Wish we had your skies, But we do need the rain.
This is a beautiful view. I love farmland!
Wide open spaces - Beautiful!!
Great landscape and the sky is just so perfect for outings.
This is a wonderful scene which you have captured beautifully.
This spring's weather has presented quite a struggle. Tough going.
Great view! Thanks for sharing this lovely photo.
I love the view, it's so peaceful.
Beautiful farm scene! Lots of rain here this year also. We welcome it!
Lovely sky. We've had a ton of rain here in Florida lately as well, ruined lots of potato crops. Too much of a good thing!
Great big patch of sky you are sharing with us this week. Good luck with the rain, weather can be a bit off an on that way.
When my dad had a farm he would complain that it was always in drought, or flood or in danger of fire, rarely the happy medium.
Looks almost like a painting. Beautiful scenery.
EG: Beautiful photo of the sky over the plowed fields, nicely done.
Very lovely clouds, so soft I'd like to reach them!
Looks like soldier clouds, row upon row, upon row....to soak the soil with their life giving water. Yet, too much of a good thing is no good.
What is normal about weather these days?
Great capture for a BIG SWF!
The farmer mentality always bothers me when I go home to visit my family. Living in the city I live after the clock and the calendar but my relatives out in the countryside live after the weather. When I ask "When are we going to do that", I expect a time as an answer and not "When the weather is right". =)
Beautiful photo. I love the way the fields look at this time of year. The sky and the earth look so big!
That's a beautiful shot and a perfect description - patchwork fields. I love the fresh clean colours.
A wonderful countryside view!
A wonderful shot of a beautiful rural scene, just my kind of place.
Our corn is probably 2 ft tall already, the rain this week was needed but hope it wasnt overkill. Nice shot.
Yes, the patchwork (nice landscape !) is still quite brown, of course you're up north, interesting all those differences on our earth, but the landscape could be in Flanders too. Till next week !
I think we sometimes forget that there is such a thing as too much rain for farmers. I love your photo.
Very cool view !!
We have had quite a bit of rain, here, over the last few weeks. Made it hard to finish planting my garden as well !!
Great shot !
Such a big sky! I am watching clouds form in Muskoka, but still the sun shines!
Another beautiful expanse. It looks like you don't have a lot of light pollution, do you ever do night photography?
Gorgeous view. This could be a photo taken in my neck of the woods!
This would make a beautiful watercolor. The fields and sky have a soft quality. Very nice capture.
Great big sky! Today there was a similar sky...I could not stop staring at it!
What an absolutely GORGEOUS sky and view. I really do love this shot.
That is indeed a big sky, and a beautiful one.
Night photography is on my list of challenges to explore. ;-)
