Skywatch Friday
Sept. 23rd, 2010

A Sunday drive under unsettled skies....

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings;  Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  John Muir

One of three rainbows we saw on this little journey - the second
was plastered to the granite rocks at the base of Daly Bluffs

I trust in Nature  for the stable laws of beauty and utility.  Spring shall plant and Autumn garner to the end of time.  Robert Browning

Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.  George Eliot

The third rainbow as we drove up the lane to home.

The early evening brought more troubled clouds

but a patch of the setting sun caught a knoll on the mountainside
in its lovely light

There are more pictures from this Sunday jaunt
posted on Sunday, the 19th, below...

  10. I love the patch of sun on the hills. In fact, I love those hills. And rainbows, oh, I haven't seen one in a long time, even though we've had a record amount of rain here.
