Not only we meet again but you had a special gift to show ... another amazing african sky and a fence just how I remembered them in farms around Pretoria!

Oh my. This looks a lot like the ranches out west in Arizona up in the high country. Nice looking scene. I love those clouds and that fence is really nice too.

I have a feeling that those clouds contain rain on the way - and the fields look as know they need it!

Another wonderful photo. It reminds me a bit of some of the wide-open spaces here in the US. Other parts of our world are so different from our own, but in many respects somehow much the same.
