That's what I would call this morning's sunrise. The cloud formations were perfect.

This is what it looks like… [ Saturday, 08 Dec 18 | 20:26 ]

When there are a lot of low clouds that obscure the color from the high clouds. Interesting that later today day was clear and sunny.

Good thing I checked the clothes washer… [ Wednesday, 05 Dec 18 | 12:18 ]

Otherwise I would have missed this morning's sunrise.



If you look close, you can see a sliver of the moon and Venus. You can still see the moon below.



After only 7 minutes the sky got brighter. Oh, and the clothes washer had finished its cycle.

Fiery sunset that is. This one lasted about 7 minutes before starting to lose its color. You will also notice the layer of pollution hovering over Barcelona as there was very little wind today.

More from Point Lobos… [ Tuesday, 04 Dec 18 | 09:19 ]

The first photo is looking south towards Big Sur.



I like the interplay of rocks, plants, and the sea in the second picture.



If you look closely, you can see sea-lions on the rocks in the next picture.



And finally, a classic view at Point Lobos.

Tonight's sunset… [ Monday, 03 Dec 18 | 18:44 ]

It started out not too promising.



But that soon changed.



There was even some color looking south over the marina.



I thought the sunset was all done. But a minute later, my partner told me to take a another look.



I was surprised. And a minute later it was already starting to fade.

Sea-wolfs Point… [ Monday, 03 Dec 18 | 11:18 ]

Otherwise known as Point Lobos or Punta de Los Lobos Marinos. It was named after the barking sounds of sea lions that make their home there in the 1700s by Spanish explorers.

Goodbye Arizona, it's time to jump to Sequoia in California. Rather than post a bunch of big tree pictures, I've selected some other things that attracted my attention…

This morning's sunrise was pretty good. The sunset this evening was just grey.

Too cloudy for a good sunset. [ Thursday, 29 Nov 18 | 12:18 ]

That's what my partner said when we returned home form my drip-session. I said, let's wait and see. So here is the progression of images taken.



Yes, there were lot of clouds, but also lots of potential. Looking south a few minutes later captured this second picture.



Then looking west, you could see this. The colors had obviously leaped across the sky.



And finally, the show was almost over when I took this shot.

It's time to leave the valley… [ Monday, 26 Nov 18 | 09:07 ]

Monument Valley that is.



This is one of my favorite vistas.



Clouds were building and there are only dirt roads in the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. So we left before being trapped in a downpour.

I was surprised at how quickly the colors this morning appeared and then disappeared.
