Wide Open Spaces

How good is this sky?
It goes on forever and ever, and is the most perfect blue you could ever hope to find. And it's mine to adore for most of the year. I die.

Just in case you thought I was lying, there it is again.
I have had 13 years to develop this cloud addiction. And now with the assistance of social media like Instagram, I can indulge in a spot of photo taking and sharing on almost a daily basis. If you don't already follow me there, you can find me as @thefarmerhasawife "The Farmers Wife".

Here are some of my favourite shots from over the last 12 months. I hope you love them as much as I do! *sigh*
Monster clouds that are the residue after a summer storm, frightening away the burning sunset.

Enormous billowing clouds heralding the arrival of a summer storm.

Sunset in a dry season.

Cartoon clouds.

Clouds for no other reason than they just 'can be'.

Clouds reflecting light in the calm between two storms.

Summer shower.
The land out here is so vast - so flat - that we are able to see the clouds in all their magnificence! We can see for the city equivalent of '1/2 way across the city' out here. There are no buildings or hills to obstruct our views, and the sky - and specifically the clouds - are the first thing people notice when they visit us out here.

In big sky country.

And I'm told that the further west you go, the more wide open spaces you will see.
What a wonderful country we live in.


  1. I know what you mean! It's big sky country here too...I love your cloud pictures too!

  2. I love your pictures. I was able to see some endless sky in the Mundy Mundy region (Broken Hill), while on a trip to Australia some time ago.
    In a year or two we'll be able to stay for a while longer than the 3 weeks we were able to afford, timewise.
    I do hope we'll manage to visit the Outback then (ahem, we'll need to rent the "right" car for that) and see for myself; especially the clouds. I love clouds...

    Thanks for sharing.
