Just had to utilize the July storm sky panorama for the calendar this month. This particular composite was made from images captured before the sun was completely obscured by the incoming cloud (see previous post).
Alternate resolutions of the calendar as well as a mobile phone wallpaper are available here.
After having recently lost my phone, I started including ‘if found…’ info with my hubby’s number on my lock screen image. If you would like a custom version with your info on it, just email the request and I’ll prep and email it to you; no charge.
With sorrow I share that last week we suddenly and tragically lost my husband’s nephew at the age of 26. Buddy spent time around the docks of our seaplane base off and on from the time he was a toddler. He started his flying career with us in 2004 and was back to work for us this summer. He was a gentle soul with a dimpled grin and quick wit, and he was an excellent pilot.
My tears fall and mix with the summer rains.
Like the rain the sadness comes in varying volume, randomly; sometimes sudden, tumultuous; sometimes softly, gently.
Like the rain the sadness passes. The sun returns with warmth and light. I go on, stronger.
The rumble of thunder at dusk drew me away from Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. I grabbed my camera and tripod and set up with a finger on the shutter button to try to catch a lightning strike before the pending rain.
The mosquitos were abundant and hungry in the calm air. Thankfully, I was reasonably well covered and held out for a few more shots before the wind and rain. Here are two more:
Oh, and the game went into overtime! Bonus.
The setting sun threw an unusual shade of pink in the falling rain and clouds.
Thankfully, this storm quietly passed by.
