Smoke and fire

We’ve had some interesting weather this week.  No tornadoes or bad storms in our area.  Just interesting.  I’m not sure it shows up well (you can see it better if you click on it for the larger version) but the photo above was taken during a heavy rain when the sun decided to peek out from behind the clouds.  There was probably a rainbow somewhere but I was busy watching the rain and sun, and didn’t get round to the front of the house to check for the rainbow.

The result of the heat, the rain, and the sun colliding with the somewhat cool water of the pond was a thick fog that didn’t last long.  It wrapped around the swimming platform for the time it was here.  (Side note:  On my ever-increasing list of things to learn is how to photograph fog.  If you have some ideas, suggestions, or pointers, please feel free to leave them in the comments section.  I can use all the help I can get.)

The sunsets have continued to be interesting as well.  The fog and the fiery sunsets have brought this song to mind.  It’s become an earworm, digging in and not letting go.

Prior to the rain that brought the fog, the pond was looking a little dusty on top, creating rainbow colors at sunset.

Tuesday’s sunset was by far the best of the lot.  I’ll spare you the week-in-review and just give you the cream of the crop.

My weekend is going to be packed with fun and adventure.  I don’t know if I’ll have time for blogging or not.

If not, have a wonder-filled weekend.  I’ll see you again on Monday.  8)

    Robin, the sunlight and dust on water photo reminds me of peering out and up into a galaxy of stars and planets

      Kel: That’s similar to what my husband said. He thinks it looks like Saturn. I wish the camera had captured the sparkling lights of the sun as well as my eye could see them.
