Skywatch Friday

Last year we visited the
in Longreach, Queensland

In the grounds beside the building
Is a huge statue commemorating
'The Ringer'
the human workhorse on the properties
(called cowboys in other countries)

 a click on the photos will enlarge them

It wasn't till we had a good look at these photos later
we saw how different the sky looked
depending on which way we turned

Within half an hour what looked like a rain laden sky
was clear again
not a cloud to be seen

  1. Cathy, I continue to be totally captivated by your blog! I know I keep saying it, but I really do love your pictures, reading tid-bits about your life, and reading about the interesting places in your neck of the woods--I think my husband and I would really enjoy a visit to the Stockman's Hall of Fame!

  2. Lovely!
    Hope you're having a Great wk.

  3. Such a gorgeous statue, it always amazes me how a sculptor can get every little detail!! xoxo

  4. Gotta love the fast moving clouds for adding to the scenery.

    The Ringer looks big enough to be a hero!

  5. Very nice shots, thanks for sharing.

    All the best
