Both beautiful, each in its own way. Love those low clouds and the "layers" in the second one.

The second one is so similar to the second one I posted, the view from my study window.

A couple of beautiful photos, Sharon! Am I looking at the Continental Divide? I've never really understood what the Continental Divide is... :)

Lilli & Nevada said...

Very beautiful! We both had the same theme going with the wispy clouds. I love that field.

I noticed you are reading In Cold Blood....I read it a few months ago. I loved Truman Capote's writing style.

Craver Vii said...

How nice of those clouds to scoot out of the way for your sky photo!

Petunia said...

This is so beautiful:) The first one makes me want to lie down and enjoy the view. The second one makes me want to hike:)Petunia's SWF

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Very nice place. Nice photo too:)
Have a lovely weekend:)

John said...

Really nice pictures!

Carole said...

My fellow New Mexico fan! I (of course) love your photos. Teach, the Continental Divide is the point where the rivers start flowing to the Pacific rather than the Atlantic (I think that's it, anyway).

Hi Sharon...
I called by to check on how well your pictures went down on Sky Watch.. I am happy to see all the great comments.
I did not notice yesterday, maybe because I was rushing.. I don't know. In the first picture, right in the middle of the low cloud I see a face.. it's as plane as day when I look now.. can you see it. It reminds me of a Gargoyle you sometimes see on churches.

Sharon said...

Tom,
You're right! I've never noticed that before. I clicked and enlarged it and there it was, like you say, a Gargoyle.

Thanks for pointing that out. :)
