My wife and I lived for a few years in Rochester, NY. While the rain and lack of dreadful dry summer winds made huge trees possible in all directions, those same trees meant the sun, sunrises, sunsets, and sky were seldom seen as on the plains of South Dakota. There were no broad horizons visible unless we looked across Lake Erie. Yesterday, the sky was mostly blue with some clouds. I hope you enjoy the photo below.
Sometimes, we don't know what we've got until we don't have it anymore. Click on the photo for a larger view.
