These are simply gorgeous photos, both in color, composition - and the wonderful sky! Love those trees in silhouette!

The landscape looks an awful like the bleak I see here. :)) Beautiful sky shots though!

Love the soft colours and subtle cloud formation.

These are gorgeous. Looks a lot like what our landscape is like as well. Spring is very slow to arrive here in New England. I am so longing for warmth.

My paternal grandfather's name is Francisco. When I see your name, I am always delighted, as it is so beautiful with an "a" at the end. :-)

What a beautiful, vibrant sky! This looks like a wonderful place be!

To answer your question: I don't enjoy Moses Lake, mostly due to local politics. It's a pleasant place to visit, but a frustrating little town to live & work in. We only intended to be here for 2-3 years, but after only two, we are looking for someplace new to call home.

Such delicate colours! There was a vibrant sky here tonight. I did photograph, but I was not in a particularly good location, so the pictures could have been better. Yours are absolutely gorgeous!

Simply Beautiful!

It's always rather surprised me to see how fast the sky can change when the sun decides it's had enough for one day!

Lovely photos.

So how is Francisca the Praguette? It seems you're having a good time. Hey, if France has baugettes, Prague could have its own bread called praguettes, right? Non? Maybe?

Thanks for your nice comment today, F. You're sweet!

The rosy sky behind the three trees in your second photo is my favorite! It seems you find gorgeous skies to photograph everywhere you go, Francisca :-D

Beautiful sky sights. Definitely very pleasing to the eyes. Job well done.

jennyfreckles said...

Such delicate colours - I'm glad you didn't choose to over-saturate these. The composition of the second one with the three trees is sublime.
I haven't been getting round my favourite blogs with any regularity either just lately. With mum being ill, time is in short supply, but it's good therapy for me to stop and gaze at lovely photos like these.
