upstate new york skywatch


please click on photo to see more detail



I took this photograph from the backseat last saturday while I was getting a tour of the beautiful countryside somewhere in brunswick, new york. for those of you unfamiliar with the term "upstate", that is how long islanders refer to the rest of new york that lies above itself and manhattan. for a more complete definition, check this out.

today is skywatch friday, if you'd like to see more skies from all around the world, please go here, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, wren, fishing guy, louise and sylvia.

Thanks for your nice words, Lily!
Your Sky Watch picture is really charming: the waves of the meadow seem to follow those of the sky and vice versa.

Lovely shot. I love everything in this photo -- from the vivid blue, cloudy sky, beautiful greenery and that touch of red. Nice colors!

What is that touch of red seeming to be in the middle of so green a field. Lovely sky.

What lovely landscape, what is New Brunswick near? I wondered what those blurs were in the foreground .. mailboxes!!!!!! Great shot, Lily!

I like this 'moving' picture! I never realized that 'upstate New York' included so much territory and is all in relation to above Manhattan! Reminds me of the attitude that Parisians had (and to some extent still have: outside of Paris, it was 'province' or 'le desert'!

Alexa said...

Yes, I love the way we lump all the rest of New York State together. Also love your photo, especially that spot of red. Enjoy your (well-deserved) award—and your weekend!

Interesting sky but I love the green fields. Now that we have had rain in Northern California I am hoping for green. Currently everything is dry and brown.

Lovely scudding clouds. And what vibrant green fields.
