Stop and take the picture

I've driven past this pasture daily. I've watched it move snail-steps from the color of sage in the fall, to a vibrant color that's hard to describe.

It's a treacherous stretch of road. People have died on the narrow road that runs along this fence. That's mainly because the curve is steep with tricky elevation. Even on dry roads when driving the speed limit, the centrifugal force of an automobile swaying through the curve is difficult for drivers to navigate. On wet roads, all bets are off.

The owner of this horse farm stopped replacing the fence a few years ago because it was knocked down each time it rained. The danger is why I haven't photographed this place before.

Today after my work at school, I parked nearby and walked down the edge of the road. I could not have planned a better time because the setting sun highlighted the flowering grass, and the clouds....well, how do you describe clouds like these? I'm glad I found the time to stop and take the picture.

    I'm imagining this enlarged and hung somewhere to remind The Stressed Ones (... jus saying ...) not to lose sight of what really matters.

  5. I think you have a knack with the camera, that is a very good shot. I like the fence in the fore ground especially. Love the clouds, I could make many figures from those.

  11. Very nice picture and the cloud seem to have faces looking down from above. I always see faces in clouds. Love the new fence too. Stay safe on that road.

  12. I'd call those clouds "simply devine!" Good shot but those country roads are dangerous. I walk up our road but don't try going around the block since they are narrow with no place to jump out of the way if needed! Glad you could catch this shot because I'm betting getting out of the car on this stretch of road is a rare moment!
