Windmill Friday

 

Brother Nelson reminded me that Mom used to say:

"There's enough blue sky to make a Dutchman a pair of britches!"

wow, stunning processing on a very beautiful photo... what did you use?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. Mainly PS with a filter.
Light doesn't come much more dramatic than that, and no guessing where that is. I like your Mom's saying.
