The Cirrus Clouds in the sky were impressive - They made a perfect backdrop for the bare trees on the Ranch.

SOUNDS CORNY BUT PICTURE PERFECT

It's SO NICE when Mother Nature cooperates and gives you everything you could ask for in a shot ;o)

When you get a chance to get clouds like this in your picture it just adds so much beauty to it. Like rays shooting across the sky, the mix of white and blue takes the image up a whole bunch of notches. For me, the bare tree in the front and the ones across the horizon are beautiful. There is something I find so beautiful about them without all the leaves. A gorgeous scene my friend.
