full moon…

night before last we had a full moon…I tried to take a shot of the moon before it got completely dark…I took more than I care to say but none were even passable.  my first problem was I didn’t know where my tripod was, (I’ve not used it in a few years…) and there was way too much shake in my hands…all the shots were blurry!  I let it go and decided to leave it until I could find my tripod…but…once it got dark I could still see the moon shining bright when I looked out my window so I went out and tried again…this is what I captured…

its a “sundog”…

had to drive to Huntsville last night, approximately an hour and 15 min. drive and the sky was so unusual…it couldn’t seem to make up its mind what it wanted to do, from one mile/kilometer to the next…anyone who visits knows I love clouds…I captured over 300 shots from my moving vehicle last night, some I’ll post but most I’ll delete…certainly worth effort to have a few!

on the way there…before the skies broke into the shot below…huntsville.drive.aug.17.2013this was on the way there…not sure what that colored section was all about as the sun wasn’t even remotely close by? It rather looks like part of a rainbow, but that is all there was to it and it was only in a specific area during the drive?  NOTE:  a visitor to my blog explained to me the mini rainbow is called a “sundog”…they are formed when the sun is low on the horizon, either to the left or right of the sun…here is a good explanation…http://weather.thefuntimesguide.com/2009/11/sun_dog.php

sunrise on the fly…

the only time I might see a sunrise is for nine weeks during the summer when I travel on Friday to Rosseau…we leave North Bay at 5:00am and this year we/ve seen a number of beautiful sunrises.  My problem is I’m in the passenger seat and the sunrise is on the driver’s side…for the most part I can’t shoot around my daughter’s head!  This past Friday I managed to capture a couple of weak shots of the end of the sunrise around her head!

a little farther down the road was foggy and the colors were pale pink!

B & W

I’m finding myself  attracted more and more to b & w…one of the blogs follow just did a b & w series, with a few flowers shots in b & w which inspired me to give it a try!

drive to Rosseau Market

this past Friday was rather foggy on the drive to Rosseau Market..we leave North Bay at 5:00am so on a cooler morning we often see some fog, but this was more than usual…nothing serious though.  fyi…the first two photos were taken from the moving vehicle!
