A Slice of Life 2012

A Year In Pictures

Outdoors August 5, 2012

Filed under: 52/366 Challenge — Tammy @ 8:00 am

Yesterday was the perfect day to be outdoors…mid 80’s and no humidity!  Absolutely perfect (the only thing that would have made it more perfect was some rain)!  We spent the day out at the Platte River.  Hard to believe that the river couldn’t keep the water in it’s banks last year and this year how low it is.

    Looks like am estuary and they are always exciting places to poke about in. Looks idyllic.

    I am sure your rain will come, beautiful place…

  3. Ellen Says:

    It really boggles my mind how really big rivers went from flood to so low. This is idyllic looking as Ron said but is scary in the extremes happening so quickly.

  4. John & Lois Says:

    I agree with Ellen. The extremes are very frightening. We have gone from drought to a rainy day that flooded streets.

    Hi Tammy,
    Beautiful shot, looks like a postcard. We have the same here. Flood one year and drought the next. We did get some rain last week and now the grass is green instead of brown. Have a great day!

    Beautiful shot, and yes, it does look like a postcard. Very well composed and I love the colours. We just had a heavy rainshower, but it only lasted about 5 min.

    Amazing how things can change from one year to another.

    What a wonderful landscape Tammy, and as has already been said, it really does look like a postcard.
    Beautifully captured.
    You have a wonderful day!

    We had one of those great days too this week but it didn’t last long….back to the 90’s and humid…but no rain! This wacky weather is definitely frustrating. Great photo! (and yes, western Nebraska is like our western SD…lots of wide open nothingness…especially in a drought year! Some summer we’ll make it to Omaha and check out your zoo. We enjoyed horse racing at Columbus a couple of summers ago.)
