SkyWatch, Fluffy Clouds




Fluffy white clouds on a background of blue sky crown the colonial village. A tranquil scene, but we know with Redcoats camped behind the village and Indians slinking through town that trouble is near at hand.

More to come………..

I love the history of these log cabins and I like the shot you captured here. I'm a big cabin nut (as I have a blog dedicated to mine) but there's something about these older cabins that seem more cozier...

I love it! Those cabins are charming. But I'm glad I wasn't in them 230+ years ago!

I think I would be taking cover in one of those cabin.

Salty I just saw your first place shots at the fair! Congrats on them. I can certainly see why they won. The shot with the old barns and the orange sky is fantastic. Well done!

You have amazing shots on your site! There is something magical about old log cabins they almost take you back to that time and place. I love the "lined up" point of view of your shot.

Can you imagine how clear and blue the skies would have been back then? I bet they were awesome.
Love the photo!

Tell your wife I would have gasped too!

Looks like a fun visit.

I must say that it would be almost impossible to find a better foreground for a sky watch picture than this one. Nice.

Salty: What a cool capture from the old village, you must have enjoyed your time there.

reluctantfarmchik said...

nicely captured - love the contrast between the old cabin and the new sky. Or is it new cabin and old sky?
