I actually took a moment to grab my camera the other day. It's kind of sad that doing so is on the rare side for me right now. I am SO close to being done with my room, which I hope means I'll get back into some kind of a normal routine, but I'm just… Continue reading Summer Sunset
I rarely get a good vantage of the storms that come through because of how we are situated. Last night, even though it isn't an awesome shot, it is still kind of impressive because the clouds were ominous looking.
We were treated with another extremely showy sunset last night. Also with so much pink in the sky it seemed a little unreal. There was a big difference last night, though. All that gorgeous pink? It was in the east. I'm not sure I've ever seen a sky quite like it. On the horizon to… Continue reading Another Pink Sky
I very narrowly avoided missing this stunning show last night. There are times that I really hate the angle and positioning of my house and not having a window in a good position to show off the sunset. When BG and I stepped outside to take pictures, everything had a pink tinge to it. It… Continue reading Spectacular Sunset
Being up early enough to get a sunrise shot is the pits, but it looks like I'll get to see quite a few as long as I have contractors working. I'm going to be a zombie by the time this project is finished. Mornings are made even more difficult when I have to herd the… Continue reading Too Dark O’Clock
I nearly missed this brilliant display last night. I managed to run out, nab these few shots and then the colors were already beginning to fade. While the colors were at their peak, they were just stunningly vivid. If I hadn't looked outside when I did, I would have completely missed it.
This was my backdrop when I was out taking photos of the strawberry moon the other night. It was so amazing to be able to face one way and get a view like this. Then turn to face the other way and see the moon just starting to rise.
Here is another moody one from the series of photos I got "accidentally". It fits my mood at the moment. Can you believe that my cough is actually worse after having gone to the doctor? And not in that "it sometimes gets worse before it gets better" kind of way, either. For this reason alone,… Continue reading Continuing The Theme
I've mentioned before that some of the coolest things I've ever created started as a mistake. This may be one of them. I took this while we were driving the other day. The sun was doing this peekaboo thing from behind the clouds, but there was still a sort of thin layer in front, so… Continue reading Cool Mistake
Of course I ran off to take BG to dance without my camera. Again. I had to take a picture anyway, so it isn't as good because it is with my crappy old phone. Still, it is pretty and worth sharing anyway.
I was less than 5 minutes from walking out the door to take BG to her assistant class when I glanced out the back window and saw this amazingly bright rainbow. I was shocked because it wasn't raining and hadn't been, but the clouds managed to toss enough moisture in the air to create one… Continue reading It Started With A Rainbow
These were from the other night. Some of my favorite types of sky photos are ones like this where there is this really deep contrast between the clouds and the sky. These took it one step further than just an amazing color of blue with the typical white clouds because this was late evening, probably… Continue reading Patchy Clouds
It is one of those days that is turning dark. The air is thick and oppressive and thunder is rolling in the distance. I have no idea if we are actually going to get any of that rain, but it sure is making the day dreary.
If you follow the moon phases, you'll know this isn't a recent shot. Still, it is cloudy and was rainy all night so I figured it was a good fit for today.
These are the last specific shots I'll be posting from my Wisconsin trip. I find these kind of funny as one of my goals for the trip was to get both sunrise and sunset shots from the peninsula, yet the only sunrise shots I got the entire time were from the moving car the morning… Continue reading Moving Sunrise
