Rays of Light

9 Aug

Since we’ve actually had something besides bright blue clear skies, it’s made for some interesting pictures.

I love the idea that we’ve reached the silver lining and this drought is finally retreating.  Dare I hope…

    nice photo !!! I hope your drought ends soon! I know how hard those are on things sigghh…

    • Teresa August 9, 2012 at 5:47 pm #

      The evening news shot down my optimism. With the new drought report out we went from 30% to 60% of the state in extreme drought, and the remainder is in severe drought. I guess I can still hope. 🙂

    It is a classic picture. Holds so many stories

    • Teresa August 9, 2012 at 8:53 pm #

      Thanks. If only those hills could talk, they would tell us all kinds of tales.

  15. Marie August 9, 2012 at 9:32 pm #

    Really amazing photo! The sky takes your breath away but you can see the ragged fence just at the edge of the shot.

    • Teresa August 9, 2012 at 9:43 pm #

      Thanks. That fence is just wonderful for sunsets.

  16. jim August 9, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    That’s an incredible sky. I like the old fence in the foreground. Great photo!

      Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend as well.

  19. Judy August 9, 2012 at 10:14 pm #

    I sure hope the drought is over!!
    Those sunbeams are called crepuscular rays. Isn’t that a wonderful word?
    I enlarged your photo, to get a better look at those fantastic clouds, and the fence is so cool!! I love it!!

    • Teresa August 9, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

      Well, that’s quite the word! Thank you. It’s an old fence~they always have character.

    Some serious beauty!

    • Teresa August 10, 2012 at 7:45 am #

      I’m surrounded by beauty here all the time.

    Beautiful capture of the rays!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

    • Teresa August 10, 2012 at 7:45 am #

      Thanks. I love when we have the clouds to let them filter through.

  23. Emille August 10, 2012 at 3:19 pm #

    What a dramatic sky! Hope is always good:)

    • Teresa August 10, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

      It seems like all we’ve had for most of the summer. Glad we’ve actually had some rain lately to keep the hope going.

  24. Coloring Outside the Lines August 10, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    Wow- great capture Teresa!

    • Teresa August 10, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

      Thanks. It’s always nice to be in the right place at the right time.

  25. Candy C. August 10, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    It does look like a silver lining! 🙂
    We had rays streaking down this morning too but I was just too busy to grab the camera. 😦
    P.S. I like your watermark on this photo!

    • Teresa August 10, 2012 at 4:39 pm #

      I keep thinking I need to do the watermark on all of them, but it’s so much work. I know. I know… We had beautiful clouds with an approaching storm then next day, but I was busy trying to get ready for the storm and didn’t get to take many pictures. Guess I have to have my priorities. 🙂

  26. NatureFootstep Photo August 10, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    that is a very good shot. Love how the rays lights up that part of the sky.:)

    • Teresa August 10, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

      Thanks. It was very dramatic.

  27. faye August 11, 2012 at 2:32 am #

    You truly live in a gorgeous place. Love your sunset photos. This one is so dramatic with the darkness in the foreground. And yes, a break in the heat is so welcome. We’re having the first cool weekend in months in KY–80s.

    • Teresa August 11, 2012 at 8:14 am #

      Glad to hear you are getting a break as well. I’m glad to hear you like the picture. I do agree I live in a very beautiful place.
