Mid-February Views

Willy Nilly Friday

Posting five random things gives me a chance to catch up on items I wanted to share and at the same time, join a few linkups. 

1. Yesterday afternoon temperatures were warm so I walked out to the lake. This is a zoomed-in picture of ripples on the water. 
Black and White Weekend.
2. This view is from a house on Nature's Way near Strasburg that's for sale. They have a nice view of Massanutten Mountain.

Weekend Greens
3. A 15-acre solar field has been completed in Front Royal. American Municipal Power (AMP) constructed the facility on former farmland. On a sunny day it can power over 300 homes. In this picture, the solar collectors are barely visible beyond the tree line, but they are quietly working away, collecting energy.

4. We live between Dulles Airport and the mountains that all the west-bound flights pass over. Under certain conditions, the jets leave vapor trails in their wake. These reminded me of tic-tac-toe, but 15 minutes later they were gone.
Skywatch Friday
5. I added a watercolor filter to this flower picture.
Sharing with Floral Friday and Orange You Glad It's Friday?
