Set 2 of My Favorite Cloud Favorites in the White Mountains

Bob Jensen at Trinity University 

 

Every single day at my desk the view differs across the mountain ranges of the White Mountains
The bright light on the left is the reflection of my camera flash on the window
These towering clouds are rolling over the Kinsman Range like a fluffy blanket
This is one of my favorite photographs

This photograph shows the 2011 crop of Impatiens for the Sun

Clouds are generally much more interesting than clear skies
And sometimes clear skies are interesting when I'm looking down at the clouds from my desk

The rain drops are on the window

This is the view to the north on the left side of my desk
The town of Littleton is in the Ammonoosuc River Valley ten miles to the north

This is a zoomed shot of Littleton
You can see smoke from the power plant

June 30, 2012 message from Barry Rice

Hi Pat,

Iím not interested in buying your ď75 acres for sale between Charlottesville and Lynchburg, VAĒ but wanted to share information about OUR SW VA farm. Itís in Seven Mile Ford, Va., which is about 40 miles up I-81 from Bristol VA/Tn. My Florida sister and I were raised a mile from it when it was our grandfather and grandmotherís home. We inherited the 100-acre farm from our Aunt last fall and hope to keep it in the family. The farm house is about 125-years old and in fantastic condition. We have been vacation at the house for many years since it is still furnished. A cousin and her husband look after it. The land is rented to their grandson who keeps beef cattle on it.

A favorite ďrecentĒ memory is from four summers ago when I sat on the porch of this house that had no running water when we were kids in the mid-1940ís. I used my laptop to wirelessly connected to the Internet via Comcast (which the house has had for over 20 years).

I moved to the Baltimore area from Va. Tech in 1967 but still take great pride in the fact that I was raised as a hillbilly in this town of 300. Iím curious about your VA connections.

There are 18 photos of the house and farm on Facebook and are available to anyone via this link:

I think Bob and I share a lot of similar memories from our rural upbringing.
