The moon was pretty bright two nights ago right around sunset, so here’s a photo. You can see some orange creeping in from the sunset going on in the other direction.
This here photo thing is a four-photo panorama of the sunset from a couple of nights ago. It was shot on 3rd Ave., right where it crosses Fern Ridge Rd., looking west, because that’s where sunsets happen.
I confess I’m not overly good at doing panorama shots, so the perspective on the building on the left (the Calvary Lutheran Church) looks like it’s leaning, as does the telephone pole there. Whoops.
I like clouds. They can be light and fluffy and fun, or dark and dramatic like the clouds above. And since this is Oregon, we get a variety of clouds types, often on the same day. A couple of days ago, it rained, turned beautifully sunny, then it hailed, more sun, high winds, more hail, and then more rain. There was a power outage in parts of Stayton. It was an adventurous day.
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson was looking up at the sky (because that’s where the sky is located, unless they moved it without telling me), and caught this bird mid-flight.
In social media news…
All of them get updated with the stuff posted here automagically.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams documented the sun’s efforts for us yesterday. Her description:
I could feel the sun trying its hardest to warm up our little corner of the world, but the clouds are thwarting its efforts. Poor Sun. Poor Us.
It will happen soon, Terri Jo. Spring is coming. Eventually.
