Spreading The Love Sky Watch Friday ...

I love my trees. At the northwest corner they come together to protrude out into the rich black snow covered soil. I stopped for this -7 degrees photograph just as the sun was about to go down beyond them. The things I do for love ... and other people around the World are doing them too at

Dinosaur's Door Sky Watch Friday ...

It's been wicked cold here on The Prairie. I've been taking photos of things that look the part. This little building was once a Sinclair gas station here in town. The Dinosaur was phased out in 1969 when Atlantic Richfield bought Sinclair ... big mistake. Who "dumps" a Dinosaur ? It was -8 degrees when I snapped the Dinosaur and his door:
It may be cold skies here on The Prairie, but at Sky Watch Friday you'll find warm ones too. We're here to remind you to look up. And while you're doing so, don't miss what's in the trees.

Sky Watch Friday ...

The Earth and Sky meet with the mere hint of a break between the two. The shelter belt is still, yet there is life ... Pheasants, Rabbits, and perhaps a few Blue Jays who didn't care to venture South.

Many of my favorite photographs say it best by saying nothing at all. I leave it up to you to find it's beauty and meaning.

See what your World is saying, or not, at Sky Watch Friday.

Sky Watch For Yann ...

Many of you know the work of Yann Arthus Bertrand in the Earth From Above Series. I own the book of 366 Days. It sits open at the table on my sun porch where I turn the page each day, considering the photographs and their location. It's my way of traveling to exotic lands.

I took this photograph of the rising sun through a thin sheet of ice outside the window of my east facing back door. Fortunately I have another back door, this one allowing access to the setting sun from my porch. I keep a close watch on these ever changing ice patterns and the colors in the sky as they splay out behind them.

You have many different friends around the world who are clamoring for your attention in many different ways at It's our way of helping you to keep your eye on the sky.
