My Head Was in the Clouds, but I Got It All Done

It was a crazy day. I started for the other house after taking this photo of the sky to compare to the night sky later, since rain is predicted. The clouds have been amazing all day. I parked on the way to the other house to try to capture the green hills at the end of the road and this is the photo I got looking down First Street in Paso Robles toward Vine Street. I was parked just past Spring on First St.

I took the photo.

While I was still parked on First Street, I walked around the Marriott Parking lot and around the building. I took this photo from one corner of the parking lot looking toward the 101 Freeway.

I took the photo.

The next stop where I got out to walk around and take pictures was the Doce Robles vineyard. It has a clear view of the sky all the way around.

I took the photo.

When I got home, I took this photo from my orchard. That ominous cloud is still there.

I took the photo.

I finally went in and processed my order. Fortunately it didn't take too long. I had to pull some grassy weeds to cover the garbage my husband had tossed on the compost pile and then I took this photo of what's left of my herb garden – the daffodils and the black sage in bloom. Of course, the fallen butterfly bush is also still there. And the grass is growing higher.

I took the photo.

As I worked outside, Sarah followed and climbed into the chair to supervise me.

I took the photo.

I went inside, took my shower, and then took a few more photos before heading to the post office to mail my package and return to the Paso house. I took one more brief photo detour in a parking lot, but I think I have enough photos for this post already.

When I got back, it was nearly six, and the sky looked like this. Still don't know if it will rain.

I took the photo.

Judging from the clouds, do you think we will get our rain?

What a contrast between the first and the last of your images. Its sure going to rain. Sarah is doing her job - must be telling you to trim that place (lol) And finally it is official. Your camera is your toy.

They are extremely beautiful photo shoots! I also like capturing nature in all its beauty. May be I will share them here too.

Love your photos, but, no I don't think you got rain that night. Since the sun isn't setting clear there's a possibility though.

Although there are still clouds in the sky, no rain yet. 60% chance today. Everyone is hoping.

The sky shows me the glory of God. As for the cat, she belongs to my neighbor and just pretends she is mine. She follows me everywhere when I'm outside.

Very pretty photos. I really like the last one. Sunsets are always nice.

Gorgeous photos and I'm so jealous! All I can see when I look out my windows is about 3 feet of snow and ice and icicles. I can't wait for spring! Mildred my cat says hi to Sarah.

Please do share your photos. I love seeing what other areas look like, and I love nature photos. Photo essays are a bit tricky, but they can be done .

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 1:45 PM

You're right. It hasn't rained yet, though we still have some clouds and there is a 60% change it will rain this weekend.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 1:46 PM

I do admit I love that sunset. We have gorgeous ones whenever there are clouds.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 1:47 PM

We never have any snow. But Im not sorry. I prefer to admire it in the photos others share.

If you like I'll send you some. We have more than we know what to do with!

Wow these photos are gorgeous. It is a beautiful time of year where you live. That is what it looks like here in Pennsylvania where I live during the spring time. I cannot wait for beautiful days like this to come again.

I used to live in New Zealand and your photos remind me very much of a lot of areas there, clear blue skies (usually), wide open spaces with lots of green and wild flowers everywhere.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 10:42 PM

I hope spring comes soon for you and that it cheers your heart when it arrives.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 10:44 PM

I thank God every day that we've been able to live here for longer than we've lived in any single other place before, though except for one apartment, I've been able to find beauty in every place we've lived before, just not as much.

barbrad difficult to tell if it would rain or not, but those pictures are great. The firs and last one are really nice.

You got so many wonderful sky photos all in one day! I love the second one where the little wispy clouds radiate from the main cloud like a sunburst (cloud burst?).

This is Guiness the Cat. Who cares about clouds? The best picture, of course, is the one of Sarah. She's so purty.

morilla wrote on March 2, 2015, 12:18 AM

Wouldn't rain have spoiled the photos you got? Would Sarah have so voluntarily supervised if it were raining? Would you have even gone outside to get photos in the rain? I suppose those would be relevant questions to ask when wondering if it would 'rain.' In other words, enjoy the 'moment' for what it is, not what it might be. Then, pray/hope for rain because much of the West is very short on it this year.

Wow, what beautiful pictures you took of the sky. when I was a young girl I loved to daydream looking a the clouds.

LilyDay wrote on March 2, 2015, 10:58 PM

Beautiful cloud photos.

It is good to see that you had proper feline supervision. As the Fuzzy Trio tell me, that is a very important thing.
