summer dreaming

Winter slogs along but, me, I'm dreaming of rides in the lush summer farmland...thus these two photos taken on the same ride northwest of the Twin Cities in a past summer. Today, reading an essay on van Gogh, I found Vincent's quote meaningful as I post these photos:
'Let's not forget that small emotions
are the great captains of our lives.'
See more sky views --from any season--at Skywatch Friday.

Fantastic snaps. Summer is just around the corner. It will be fine.

Your skies have such drama! As did the life of poor Vincent Van Gogh.

Lovely scenery. The tallness of the sky in the second is breathtaking.
