Just a scenic shot of some big puffy clouds floating across Oklahoma, mostly because not much gets posted of places like this, mostly because it is, admittedly, pretty boring. Pretty, too, in a, "My, that's an awful lot of flat land!" sort of way.

Big sky that seems to go on forever................

Cheers, Tony in New Zealand

Where are the elephants eyes?

kamalyn on May 30, 2009

OK, I started out harking back to 'Oklahoma!'. Then I looked in the sky. LOL, THERE'S all the critters! as well as Bill Clinton's face on a fuzzy slipper.

ee-Yup. The sky. Now that's the prairies for you! Cuz there isn't much else except sky.

not1word on May 31, 2009

That is does, Tony.

kamaly, the eyes are above the elephant's head halfway to the top, and a titch to the left. I forgot to 'shop them out.

I'm thinking that the plains states might be a trifle miffed at Montana for claiming to be "big sky" country, stoneboat.

You're all wrong. This pic is made in The Netherlands. No mountains, no hills. Just flat land.

Bits-n-Pieces on May 31, 2009

but it can't be the Netherlands, Norrel - there are no Clogs!

not1word on May 31, 2009

Well, the sky is pretty clogged up with coulds.

kamalyn on May 31, 2009

Couldas, and wouldas, and shouldas....yup - I know that feeling! ;) LOL, I've looked at clouds from both sides now.

(hopefully you don't fix your typo before I post this.)

kamalyn on May 31, 2009

and I've gotta say, I love your typo up there, n1w - what an evocative phrase!!!!

not1word on May 31, 2009

Thank you, kamaly. I can't explain why that misspelling looked to right to me. It was late when I posted it? Mentally it pains me when I have to drive across such hu-u-u-uge (flat) tracts Well, it probably centers around the fact that I'm not as careful as I ought to be. But, your link was very carefully shot, I must say. And I really liked Guy's poetic quote.

Hi not1word!

The colors are just great!

I also like to upload pictures of places that no one's gonna! Love this idea!

Best wishes!

Hello, Andriy, it's nice to have you stop in again and leave a friendly comment. I enjoy both types of posting, the ones that might be pretty far off the beaten path and the ones that everyone can compare different ways to see and catch the same thing. I guess sometimes it depends on the mood I'm in or if I think that I can show a different enough look to be interesting. Happy shooting to you!

Andriy Kotsyumbas on May 31, 2009

Hi there, not1word!

You're right! I also like the two kinds of places! And speaking about famous places, a different look can give you a totally different perspective of what you see! I like to rediscover places like that!

Not1word, enjoy the travelling!

Best wishes,


not1word on May 31, 2009

Very good point with perspective, Andriy. I'm all back home again, so my travelling is now just around the valley for the most part, but that's good enough sometimes.

Those clouds sure look fun to fly through. Glad you had a safe journey. It's been fun to watch your postings.

not1word on May 31, 2009

Thank you, Spence. I often wish that I could just float up there with the clouds. It was a fun trip, and it's good to be back home again.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on June 3, 2009

Its plain to see that this is a great shot n1w. What!! not a buffalo in sight ;>)


not1word on June 3, 2009

Hello there, Jim. Thank you for being so understanding, and for your kind comment. They don't let the buffalo run around loose any more. They said it cluttered up the view too much.
