Salty, a great photograph as always, but then I wouldn't expect anything less from you. I enjoy all the family sites.

Very nice photo! So that grass is called a foxtail? I'll have to remember that.

Happy Sky Watch Friday. ;-)

I like this golden color. And the ripening grain. They go together. I have a picture of a sky taken 54 years ago that I wanted to use for sky watch.

Great concept. The sky does not have to be focus all the time yet you know it's there. Good job!

Salty, Please tell Mrs. Salty thanks for visiting my site. I'm glad you both enjoyed your visit in Bellefonte. I just wanted to let Mrs. Salty know that she wrote we had five governors and was wondering if you both noticed both sides of the stone? There were seven governors. I have them listed in an older post here, http://discoverpa.blogspot.com/2007/04/governors-who-have-lived-in-bellefonte.html if you or Mrs. Salty wants to take a look. I have all their names listed.

Just want to add my comment about this photo you posted which is beautiful.

Hi Salty
This is a stunner.... I have enjoyed looking at all I've missed of late... I am trying to get a little organised at the moment but I'm hoping to be calling here more.. I always feel as if I've missed out by not visiting.
