2017 Solar Eclipse 1: It Begins!
A perfect day for the Summer Solstice to arrive with a high of 107°F (42°C).
Nature is quite amazing!
You are my sunshine!
This is what happens when I squat down to take that so-called perfect shot only to find out later I must have been more focused on not falling over to one side. Oh well! Now it looks like one of those cool angle shots.
I wanted to take a photo of Comet 45P but my stupid (not me) alarm clock was not set correctly. Now you just get this sunrise pic instead. Good morning everyone!
Enjoyed a beautiful sunset from the outdoor patio of Palapas Restaurant & Cantina in Aptos, CA. It was a nice afternoon hanging out with family.
View of sunset from Sloughhouse, CA.
One Last Glow
The sky gives one last glow before nightfall takes its place.
Normally I don't like having power lines in my photos but I had to make an exception in this case. I love the symmetry of the wires.
Amazing clouds this evening made for an awesomes sunset.
This was the sunset as seen from Folsom yesterday. I literally jumped out of my vehicle, grabbed my camera and started taking photos. Minutes later it was just a colorful memory.
Sunset at Speedboat Beach
Witnessed a beautiful sunset with my family surrounded by large rocks at Speedboat Beach, Lake Tahoe.
Here's another photo of the Sun rising this morning. It was just popping up where the layer of smoke was at its thickest giving the Sun a blood red color.
Summer in California can mean smoke trapped in the valley for several days from distant fires. This can sometimes lead to some colorful sunrises.
