On Friday evening I went out for an evening walk on the farm and spied this amazing sunset. I came back inside, grabbed my purse and camera and first got this shot, then took a drive up to Vista House. All the way up there I was spying this amazing blazing sky!
Once at Vista House I could see the whole Western sky from 733 feet up on Crown Point! You are seeing an island in the river with water reflecting the sky on both sides.
I turned to see Vista House lit by the sunset.. and the red sky reflecting in the windows.
I loved how this one turned out.. kind of artsy.
Later when I got home the moon was full and pretty.
Last night they'd predicted a "Super Moon".. so when dusk approached I once again headed up to Portland Women's Forum to try my hand at capturing a nice moon shot. Vista House was glowing in the reflection of the sunset and was crowded with people who'd seen the sunset photos of the evening before and were hoping to capture another one, but this evening it was more of a sedate sunset.
And many other photographers and I waited for the moon to rise. It was warm and humid and the mosquitoes were feasting on us.. but I stayed.. and waited.. and played Words with Friends and Scrabble on my iPhone.. no more games.. posted a photo on Facebook of the gorge.. waited.. swatted mosquitoes.. and then.. a glow in the eastern sky. Would you believe that there was only ONE cloud in the sky.. and would you believe that it was in FRONT of the moonrise? ARGH.. the challenges of the moon chasing blogger! And then the clouds finally dissipated enough for me to get this photo.
I then drove home with the AC blasting in the car and quickly tucked in to our AC cooled farmhouse and found respite in my easy chair. Then.. I spied this image right out of our kitchen window from my easy chair and had to go out and try again. There is a branch in front of it.. but I kind of like how it turned out.
And then I sewed up my latest crocheted cotton pillow cover. I think the next one will be granny squares.. 9 of them.. what do you think?
Both of my new pillows together.. the colors aren't that true in this shot as it was in the darkish living room.
After a long run of gorgeous sunny weather, today we're having thunder and some light rain. It's okay by me! I might do some jewelry making today. What are you going to do on this lovely Summer Sunday? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
