SkyWatch Friday - Deceptive Skies


The western sky across the paddock behind my house 
as the day draws to a close


creating a make-believe lake beyond the line of the hill


even turning the tall grass into reeds at the edge.


Am I seeing things, is my imagination running riot
or is it just the after effect of the Christmas libations?

Hope you all had a good one!

  11. Glad the skies gave you the chance to play. Bet many were so busy inside on the 25th that they didn't even notice. So lovely to read of a quick journey into the world of make believe with your beautiful sunset.
    I'm glad that you had a happy Christmas Day (and very glad that our daughters are home to share it with us!).
