If you are tired of sunrise and sunset photos you may want to skip today's post.
|The beginning of sunset last night.
|An amazing view.
|And then it died away.
A quiet night, not as warm as Friday night but not cold either. A bit of a breeze when I stepped out this morning to wait for sunrise. Cool enough that my hands were cool, leaning toward cold and I would have benefited from some light gloves. I did however forget them and so I simply moved one hand at a time into my pocket, while holding the camera with the other.
|Fire in the sky to the east this morning.

This morning's walk was also my walk for the day, a little under 2.5 miles in a bit less than an hour. I was chilled by the time I got back even with the sun up. The wind, the wind, the wind. Not a hard or fast wind but a cool wind.
Not to be forgotten. The moon was shining brightly but very high in the western sky. I've been told this may be referred as a Cold Moon. Although perhaps not now as it is no longer a full moon.
In the eastern sky, the sun is showing off again.
Biscuits for breakfast. Not something we have often but we savour them when we do have 'em. Yummy. Since today is pasta for lunch day I didn't have anything to prep for lunch. Miss Riley insists on doing this cooking solo. Who am I to disagree? Lunch was good.
|It's almost up.
And through the Palo Verde Tree we can see it ever so slightly, The rays causing the tree's spiky branches to shine.
The wind has steadily increased all day, dropping off completely for a few minutes, just enough to make you think it's gone and bang, it's instantly back again. Not hard, but cool, very cool. Too cool to sit outside unless one is wrapped up a good amount even out of the wind. However we managed to keep the big door open most of the day and the vents but we wore slippers and a sweater too.
|It's slipping up over the lower edges now.
|But not over the higher ones yet.
A quiet day, except for the few comings and goings around us. Surfed the net, did some reading, did a bit of putzing around, you know how it goes. We have a few plans for this week but I'll tell you more about those in future posts.
These poles are fenced off in a section close to Ogilby Road, along with a number of items. This photo shows how long they are. There is no break in them, they run the entire length of the photo.
More than one pile of them too. Quite long, don't ya think?
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Until next time... take care, be safe,
