Here’s a quick photo update of the last two days…

Yesterday was a gorgeous day, and the weather perfect. I took a photo of our pool. Inviting … yes?!

Today I woke up to the darkest skies ever and rumbling thunder noises in the background. I thought it was a lot earlier than it was, and quickly checked the weather map at accu-weather on my computer to see what was going on. There was a large front – with “red blobs” of very stormy weather, and they were headed right for us. There is something inviting about a rainy morning like this, especially if I do not have to go out anywhere and can just enjoy my morning coffee with Ray — listening to the sound of rain on the roof. And – it was a cozy morning.

I took one photo when it was raining the hardest looking out of our sliding glass door towards the back door which is sort of off to one side. It was an experiment in learning to use different F-stop settings to see how much of the photo — both raindrops and door — I could get into focus. Of course the higher the f-stop, the slower the shutter speed, and since I wasn’t using a tripod, the blurrier the photo! But – I got a few shots, one of which will be my photo of the day. It’s not an exciting photo, but it is a photo that describes the morning:

Today’s bonus photo shows that by sunset the skies ultimately cleared – – somewhat, at least. In reality, the weather really remained unstable most of the day…

This was taken up the street from us where there are fewer trees than around our house so the sunset was more visible. I stopped along side of the road where there is a farm field before the houses that you see in the background. The reflection of the sky in the standing water was really pretty.

Tomorrow I will be playing golf for the first time this season, and I can’t take my camera onto the course as it’s an annoyance to my playing partners. I wish I could because a golf course can be a very scenic environment! Sometimes, instead of concentrating on the golf, I’m forming photos in my mind! However, I will get a photo of some kind when I get home… I think the weather will be good – and not too hot, either. However, if it is, there’s the pool (above) to cool off once I get home!
