Some Favourites

Another month is coming to an end and my two month summer holiday has begun.As a school bus driver,I look forward to July and August,to have a little break from rigid schedules.

I am sharing a few recent images that I like.There is no special theme to this post, just a few favourites.
I thought this was a pretty scene.Wide open pasture, mostly a clear blue sky and a few fence posts to frame the scene.

Anyone who follows me of Facebook or this blog, knows that I love to watch the sky. Some dark skies just before sunset, added interest to the sky.

As the sun set,I was looking for something different to use in the photo.A coupe of thistle flowers were the perfect choice at least in my opinion.

The clouds never fail to amaze me.Sometimes they are all billowy and white, and at other times, like this, they send long fingers into the sky.

I can't explain just why I love this shot,but I really do like it.The road, leading to the distance and then those beautiful clouds, make for a pleasing image to me.

Something To Think About:
As both Canada and the USA celebrate special days this coming week,Canada,celebrating Canada Day on the first of July and the USA,Independence Day on the fourth, let's celebrate our freedoms.Let us also not forget to pray for our nations and for the leaders.
