November Skies

I'm not getting far yet for photography after my surgery, but this morning we were getting some nice sunny breaks while snow was falling north and south of us.  I couldn't resist getting out a little beyond the end of the driveway to get some shots.

This is the view straight out back, that lone big elm tree beside the ever present hydro pole across the road.

Out front beyond our driveway, if I position myself right, I can get this view with no hydro wires or houses.

And looking down to the stop sign at the corner, that's where we head out walking the dog every morning.  (I'm not allowed to walk the dog in case she pulls on the leash, so the Chief Caregiver here is stepping up and I think enjoying it; I certainly enjoy the walking together).

Looking southeast from the lot next door; couldn't avoid the hydro lines in this one.  You can see a hint of the valley in the distance in the shadows behind the trees on the right.

And straight across the road, I liked the contrast of clouds in this shot.  Hope you're all having equally good skies to enjoy!  On day 11 I'm up to 7500 steps in my recovery walking, and absolutely nothing helps the breathing more (you need to totally re-inflate your lungs after being on the heart/lung machine - takes awhile).

  1. They are all beautiful, and that cold air will certainly instil gentle breathing for a while. Hope all is going well, those step numbers tell me you are really doing everything to order. Take care as you progress, each day/week/month, and these steps outdoors are huge ones. Fond wishes, Jean.

  10. That was my blue sky from yesterday too, and I thought it was unusual for November.
