Tuesday Treat

I'm afraid that this evening at the computer must be spent on Company Business. Therefore, I am rescued from the requirement to think of something pithy to say - that's "pithy", NOT "pissy". Because if you know anything about me, you know that I don't get pissy. Most of the time. Anyway, I found this pretty picture I thought I would share with you. It was taken last July on my friend's farm, near Fort Dodge, Iowa. Janet was getting the goats into the barn and I didn't have anything better to do, so I turned around and saw this:

Nice pic.

Rebecca said...

That is VERY pretty. I vote "yes."

warriorwoman said...

Quite stunning!

I actually lived in Fort Dodge for about a month and a half with my aunt years ago.

Nice picture, Lou. Thanks for sharing.

Christy said...

It's pretty. Would you call that a red sky at night?

Sailor's delight?

(Hey, they call me that too....)

What a great piece of art. I love the way the trees outline against the sky. My eyes were drawn to the trees first, their black shadow making such an interesting pattern against the lighter sky. I bet if you took that picture and enlarged it and put it in an old wood window frame, you would have something really nice to look at. Oh, I am such a decorator! : )

That Iowa sky is just amazing. Awesome shot.

You sure have some purdy pitchers, Lou.

Alice said...

Aw Lou, but pissy is so fun to read most of the time.

I'm also a fan of catty and gossipy.

Sandy C. said...

What's wrong with being pissy? ;)

Love this sunset shot. Such gorgeous skies.

Hyphen Mama said...

That sky is screaming to be replicated on your canvas.

The colors are beautiful.

Alice said...

Lou - just hopped back over from Big Momma P's blog and what you said was lovely. You da man.

audubon ron: Thank you.

Rebecca: Yes?

warriorwoman: Clouds on fire. If I paint it, that's what I'll call it.

elizabeth: Why, thank you, ma'am.

employee: you're so very welcome.

christy: I would have thought, "a sailor's warning".

moneythoughts: Thanks, Fred. Most people don't think of photographs as Art.

maggies mind: Thank you.

shadow: I'll try not to.

witchypoo: Why, thank you, too, ma'am.

alice: you're really a doll at heart. I was going to say 'pussy cat', but given the general tenor of my comments, some people might take that the wrong way.

Sandy: You wouldn't know - because you're NEVER.

hyphen mama: I'v been thinking about that.

alice: I have no idea where that came from.

myst 72: Can you see me? Is the web cam on?

Tash said...

Great shot Lou! And you should definitely paint it, though I know you didn't ask our opinion on it.

Secret Agent Mama said...

That photo is magic!

Nicole said...

Gorgeous shot - I love the clouds - pretty!
And well, work needs to be done, no?

Lady Language said...
