Sky Watch - Sunrise

I am not up before the sun often these days, but last Saturday, I got these shots shortly after the sun climbed above the trees.

Sky Watch - Up, up and away

Two weeks ago I spotted a large flock of Canada geese on the water and stopped to take a few shots. As I was shooting, a good many took flight and headed south over the bridge to my left. Two minutes later the rest took flight toward the setting sun and circled back to follow the others. More shots of the geese here.

Our World - Canada geese

We have a good many Canada geese in Maryland year round, but the numbers go up in the fall. I heard the geese when I was at Wal-Mart  last Saturday and walked over to the edge of the hold pond to see them. There were several hundred on the water. They began to depart in small groups of 8 to 10; then a large number left together.

On Sunday they were back on the playing fields adjacent to water shown above. I went down to the parking area by the fields to get a closer shot, but when they saw the camera, they turned and waddled away.

PhotoHunt - Ripped

Actually broken, but I was ripped to find the rear window of our van shattered last Monday. Sheriff's Deputy said I was number 10 that they knew about in the neighborhood.

Thanks Jamie for hosting PhotoHunt! It has been a  fun four years for me.

Sky Watch - Clearing storm

The rain had stopped Tuesday morning, but the clouds rode a strong wind across the mountain mid-afternoon, and left a delightful, but breezy, sunset.
