We have started having some now. The cold fronts have stopped coming here and high temperatures are setting in. I greatly prefer the rain but our clear summer nights let the nighttime temperatures fall into the 40’s (f) and that’s very pleasant.
That’s a large part of my motivation for this blog, Teresa. This particular scene was in the valley, but a lot of what I photograph is never widely seen because it is remote. I hate that the beauty of such places is un-noticed.
Beautiful. I missed last nights full moon rise. I’ve had grand children visiting this week and last night was the first night I didn’t have anyone and I guess I was more tired than I thought as I fell asleep by 8 and slept soundly until this morning. Didn’t even hear the fireworks that went off at the baseball park a couple of miles away, which I can always hear. Nice to see this peaceful image this morning a nice counterpoint to the activity level of 5 and 8 year olds. Thank you.
A beautiful moonrise. It rose here out of a “mountain” of clouds, and then was framed on both sides by fireworks! All the little towns along the bay have their shows before the big one, and I can see them all just by walking up one floor to the 4th level balcony. At one point, I could see the moon and seven fireworks shows!
I was up in the mountains last night and didn’t see ay fireworks. I had heard that the usual display in the nearest town was not held this year for lack of funds anyway. I remember one fourth I was driving ( I can’t remember now even where that was), but I was able to see some of the fireworks from several different small towns as I drove.
