SkyWatch Friday: Plateau Skies

The sky above the road in front of our house, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. October 29, 2011.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Autumn on the Plateau can be a beautiful season with trees in their autumn glory, blue skies, and white clouds.  Things got interesting around our house this week, but I did get out last weekend and captured a few pictures showing our autumn skies.

The picture above was taken on the road in front of our house.  Although there are still leaves on the trees, more and more bare branches can be seen.

The view at the Fourteenth Hole of the Druid Hills Golf Course, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. October 29, 2011.

A little later we drove to an overlook on the fourteenth hole of the Druid Hills Golf Course.  There were plenty of rust-colored trees to be seen.  Could there possibly be a prettier place to live?

    A very picturesque golf course – seems that Fairfield Glade is a
    retirement “paradise”. Good for you.

    You still have bright, heavenly colors on your trees!


    Imagine a world with no sky—
    Through what would the geese and crows fly?
    And where would bears go
    If there were no snow
    Falling to earth from on high?
