Wednesday Words: Emerson

I like Emerson..I also love the color of this is a Misty Lilac Wave Petunia that has lost part of its Misty Lilac color, revealing the color it really wants to be. Thanks! Jen at Muddy Boot Dreams for Wednesday Words:)

Sunday Stills : Clouds

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was clouds. These photos were taken on Sunday night August 09, 2009. We went up on the prairie and this was the view looking west at sunset.
This was the view across the road looking east, I loved the reflection of the sunset colors in the clouds. :)

Sunday Stills : Five Elements

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was The Five Elements. I believe them to be Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Our neighbors had a very old house on their property, it was no longer inhabited and could not be safely remodeled or it was used as a "Control Burn" that taught many Fireman about fire and how fire behaves..for some young Fireman it was their first experience in a burning building.

There is water in that red line that the Fireman on the left are advancing with.. but only four elements are visible.

Finally a spray of water can be seen... all five elements in one photo. These photos were taken on May 23, 2009 :)

Sunday Stills: Fences

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was fences. We have a few of those around.
We have an old cedar split rail fence in our yard. Chance had company this week, our Grand-dog Miney was here all week while her family was on vacation without her. She and Chance are great friends, she is a Shetland Sheepdog or a Sheltie. She does not like posing for photographs as much as Chance, but we still had a wonderful two dog week!
The fence in one of the local cemeteries at Sunset on August 01, 2009. Have a great week everyone! :)
