Storm Clouds & A Texas-Size Tumbleweed




Driving to the mail box this afternoon, I was attracted to


the contrast between the dark clouds in front of me and the 



light from the sun behind me.


And this Texas-size tumbleweed made me smile.

  5. Tumbleweeds make me smile too, they're one of the things I like about the southwest US.

    I like contrast between light and dark, too. Very nice photos, Inger!

  10. I have Texas-sized tumbleweeds of dog hair in my house, and they don't blow away. I have to vacuum and sweep and then, somehow, they reappear.

    Love,

  11. Dear Inger, I don't think I've ever seen a tumbleweed except in photographs. I've read about them in novels, but actually seeing the whole front of your jeep almost hidden by one is something else entirely! Peace.

  14. I didn't even know you had tumbleweeds in your neck of the woods. Totally neat looking. I've never seen one in person before, but the first time my hubby saw one in the street in from of him when he was driving on a business trip, he wasn't sure if he should drive right into it it or try to go around. He ended up having no choice but to hit it, and it just tumbled right over the top of the car.

  15. I am always struck by how mysterious your landscape is ... and the tumbleweed just adds to the mystery. Great pictures!

  17. I'll bet you often get some gorgeous skies. Even the dark and brooding stormy skies are fascinating and beautiful! And that is some big tumbleweed. I have always found them interesting. :-)
