Sky Picture of the day for both January 27 and 28, 2013 because they’re so similar.
Sunset on Sunday.
And Sunrise on Monday
There was an awesome (there, I said it) cloud near the Moon last night after sunset. It looked almost like an expanded contrail or cometary trail leading the Moon.
Unfortunately in the time it took for me to get my camera, the cloud had faded somewhat but was still pretty.
I consoled myself by taking a closer shot of the crescent Moon.
Lovely clouds that if anyone painted them, everyone else would think the artist was smoking something.
Need some clouds?
On Wednesday evening Susan called out to me “you should see the clouds to the South.”
I went outside but couldn’t see the clouds to the South because of the houses in the way (she’d been standing upstairs looking out our living room windows) but could see some great thunderheads to the East.
They made a great backdrop for some Willow shots.
Another light picture day. It was a bit gray and rainy to start with.
Eventually we went out and were accosted by critters looking for food
We did a bit of snorkeling, some kite flying and a whole lot of being lazy.
At the end of the evening we were rewarded with a great sunset.

Taking the boy out for a walk I was treated to pretty clouds.
Roses that are going absolutely wild.
A great sunset (with kites).
A view of Venus setting in the West.
After playing with some time lapse photos I found that I got a near effect if I move the camera. This is looking down the street toward a setting Venus. The white squiggle in the upper right 1/4 of the picture is Venus. The other is a couple of street lights.
