The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Fences in the Sky

well that is what they look like to me.


Okay I admit, I flipped this next one over just for fun.

A breeze picked up and brought me back down to Earth spoiling my fun with reflections,
and so I turned my attention back to birds,

and cows, and sheep.

This here in real life looked like flies buzzing around the cattle but I zoomed in on the action and unknowingly lost the effect in doing so.

  4. That are some nice fences, I had to look very closely to see that it is actually water (i think...). Very nice photos, great capture!

  5. What we envision is all a matter of perspective, isn't it?
    Love the "fences in the sky." Nice silhouette of birds and cows, too.

  8. I know I a bit Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies but posts like this one really make me think I am a goner. Thank goodness you told me what I was seeing. These are such cool shots....especially the ones in the beginning...and the one with the flies buzzing the cows. genie

  14. all great photographs but the fence in the sky was really kind of eerie; what a great shot/reflections and all so deceiving to the eye

  19. Fences in the sky has my vote. I was baffled at seeing these photos at first. Early in the morning, but gee what a concept. You must think a lot about what you are going to post, or do these things just come up in your head? Nice.
