What a magnificent dawn. Stunning. I would wake up early every day just to see that my friend.
Thanks, Drew. I’m at 5:30 on weekdays and 6:00 on weekends so I see what the painter, as Marina calls her, has to offer every morning.
Oh, you’re like my, sleeping in late (6:00 on the weekends.) Don’t blame you. That was gorgeous.
I’m often up before 6:00 on weekends because the cats expect to be feed canned food between 5:30 and 6:00. One of the many morning routines.
Do you wake up on your own or do the cats wake you. I had a cat that used to wake me up.
That cats are always wanting under the covers, and stomping across me to get hard food, water or got to the kitty litter. But on cold mornings, I generally wake on my own because the cats are all piled on me and don’t want to get up because it’s cold. That changes as it gets warmer.
They are amazing
Never a dull moment with cats.
I took a bunch of pictures of the clouds today, too… but not at sunrise nor sunset, unfortunately.
High Dale. The real sunset tonight was a non-happening as far as color was concerned.
It looked like it was so-so over here, too. I had frozen my butt enough on today’s walk, I frankly didn’t care to find out just how much there might be!
It’s been could, I imagine you are much colder. Only so much butt freezing one can take trying to get photos.
I am so done with this bloody cold. Today the wind was particularly bitter. I was able to find a nice little spot and if I weren’t so tired, would finish my post. It’s about halfway done and shall wait for tomorrow!
Understandible. There was a real nip to the wind today. But even the sun was cold the few times it managed to peek through the clouds.
At least our sun gave off some heat that I could feel when the wind died down.
Love the wood ducks – quite the dapper pair
Thanks, Brian. It was dark with heavy clouds so the male looks rather drab.
They can definitely shimmer with the best of them in the sun, I just happen to really like when they have their necks extended and you can see the big crest in the back.
Magnificent skyscapes, Tim. That owl looks in total control. You guys get visited by some splendid clouds.
We do get great skies. Daddy Owl doesn’t mess around. I few hawks have met their demise trying to go for the owlets. Thanks, Bill.
Daddy Owl reigns over the entire landscape, quite a self-satisfied countenance there.
He likes to hoot also. We often get hooting in surround sound from all the different owls hooting from different tree around the property.
I enjoyed your scenes from bosque, river and sky, Tim. It’s a beautiful place you live in.
Thanks, Lavinia. The wild skies seem to almost always deliver.
Gorgeous pictures Timothy. You brighten my evenings.
Thanks, Gabriela. I always happy to brighten your evening. I hope all is well with you, Maya and Mr. Chruchill? Is there anyone else in your houshold I should be sending good cheer to?
Yes, Timothy. It is. Thank you for the cheers. Cheers from us to everyone in your household too. Kisses and purrs for the kitties 🐈⬛
I love it when the days are longer. But I always have a hard time remembering which way to turn the clocks….I’m directionally challenged I guess!
Great selection to cheer me up, Tim. Thanks.
Those faces in the clouds, they are not friendly kind. Daddy Owl looked like he was taking a nap. The hard part today was noticing the loss of an hour. Start on something, then all of a sudden it’s three in the afternoon. Hopefully, it fixes itself tomorrow.
Great cloud formations ! Daddy Owl always looks so cute.
Oh… I love it and the wowls sitting sentinel on it all.
Painter again at great moods, even Daddy Owl is impressed!!!!
Oh, no you’ve gone to DST?
Ours is last Sunday of March. Horrible! There goes our hour!
You are saved for a few weeks. Thanks, Marina.
I better savor the days! 😉
Now that is a crazy sky! Good timing!
Teri! Sorry about that.
Wow! Awesome clouds…
Truly magnificent cloud-scapes, Tim. Hugs on the wing.
Incredible and crazy clouds indeed! 😲😍
The wood ducks are adorable. I never see them here. That sky!
They are really cute, but silly ducks. Thanks, Mary Jo.
It is wonderful to wake up with this kind of sceneries! The land around resembles to a bush land, is it the case? Do you live in a bush environment?
If you are thinking African bush environment, no. The African deserts in northern Africa and in South Africa are more similar to our environment. The bosque is a narrow wooded area that thrives along the Rio Grande. The environments in the valley and outside the valley are part of the high deserts and xeric shrublands ecoregion.
Thank you for the explanation. I lived in the South African bush for a while, and i thought your place was quite similar, as far as sceneries, landscapes are concerned.
South Africa is similar. We are at a higher elevation. SA’s average elevation is 1045 meters, NM’s average elevation is 1915 meters. Our property and the bosque are at 1524 meters. Nurseries sell exotic plants from South Africa for people’s gardens because the South African plants do very well here.
Ok, now I understand why it looks familiar to me. I loved being there, i loved the South-African bush.
it looks like the trees are tickling the clouds!
It sure does. Thanks, Holly.
I think I like the third image the most. But, then again, the duckies are so cute. Great clicks as always, Tim.
Great photography, Tim.
I adore the Wood Ducks. I bet they don’t give one quack about DST!
Oh … Robins. You had lots of robins in a post. I think I saw 1 robin a year ago. I might have Robin envy.
You’re right wood ducks don’t give a quack about DST. We are weird about time. I’ve never seen so many robins in one place. Thanks, Resa.
Everything is LOTS in the bosque. It’s almost like a long time ago, not prehistoric, but rich and plentiful.
Thank you for all the wonderful pics. It’s a virtual holiday!
Most of the bosque is young. When you look at pictures of the Rio Grande from the 1930’s, it’s mostly marshland, willows and grasses along the banks of the river before they levees where built and the cottonwoods grew up to become the bosque.
Well, at least they built something good. I mean, turning marsh into the bosque seems like a good thing.
Hey Tim … those skies are magical! Love those cloud swirls
Thanks, Julie. We have had a lot of great skies recently.
