I spent the day at Sequoyah State Park and Lodge in Hulbert, in northeastern Oklahoma (I won’t bore you with reasons why unless asked, but will say it is a lot of driving for a 1 day trip). This met me as I was leaving…not bad, huh?
With the actual sunset off to my left, the mirrored cloud reflection on the water (Fort Gibson Lake) reminded me of a painting…and I about fell in the lake getting this photo due to sheer clumsiness….
These pictures from yesterday aren’t too bad considering the pace of a brisk evening walk, a quickly draining iPhone battery, and an impatient leashed Scottish Terrier (that would be none other than the Princess Zoey). I used an HDR app on the iPhone to take these photos.
I stopped counting the number of colors in the sky after 15
If you look real close – and I mean put your nose on the screen close – you can make out the sliver of moon right over the tree tops
This picture has the moon and tree tops again…and a jet streaking across the sky…
Ya know, maybe I should sell my big cameras and use my iPhone camera more often (yeah right). :)
So long Daylight Savings Time (why do they mess with us like they do?)…the days are getting shorter and the sunset has moved south on the horizon, all that means is my timing is way off and I need to scope out new vantage points for evening picture-taking.
The fisherman were also struggling with the earlier sunset, I think….
Heading to the boat ramp….
The water even took on a partially frozen look….
These two weren’t, but they certainly were watching…the fishing.
A Tuesday night middle school game along my commute home route (the team in red was leading 24-0 in the 3rd quarter). BTW, it is well known that football is king in Texas but I checked…those are not luxury suite windows in the end zone.
The sunset tonight was quick and one that only a true sunset-lover might appreciate…(it looks like I may have been about 5 minutes late getting set up for the photo tonight)
But it was a good thing I got up this morning and messed around with the spectacular sunrise….
And yesterday’s Blue Moon was still in the morning sky as the sun was coming up…so she afforded me another photo before the sunrise showed face (how many moon shots can you post before it gets ho-hum?)
The adventures of a sassy, often defiant, not quite fearless pilot's wife, mother, and photographer. Join me as I globe trot the world using my travel benefits. Here I will share photographs of my travels, chronicle my journeys, and provide useful tips and information.
I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
