I was having an argument is a cycling group on FB concerning Breezer drop-outs (which I hate) and took this photo to illustrate what a pain they are when it comes to positioning the QRs. I liked it, very industrial and not a bad topic for a P of the D. Sometimes the day’s photo just shows up.

This was a tough one, I saw it when I first went out this morning and the balloon was moving so fast that I barely got back outside with the camera before it had drifted too far away. Also, I’m still waiting for a decent Fuji zoom so I have to take shots like this with my 60mm which compounds the difficulty. Nonetheless, the mornings, we’re about 2 weeks out from the Balloon Fiesta and now we’re starting to see this brightly colored orbs on a daily basis.

And this my friends is what a Supermoon actually looks like when setting. It’s not often that I get decent conditions for a moonset, today was one of those days.

Last week the Pottery Head was sitting between some trunks of an elm out back. Now that tree is gone and the Pottery Head has moved to a pot around the other side of the house. Things change.

This is the final Supermoon of 2014 and if you’re expecting a giant orb floating on the horizon between two Piñon Pines, you’re not going to find it here. This is the way it looks, and no Photoshop was abused in its production.

So I was sitting outside last night enjoying dinner and I happened to turn around just as the Moon was starting to appear over the parapet of the house. I made a note to get out there tonight and try to photograph the instant where it just breaks the edge. Conditions were perfect - clear sky, big Moon one day shy of full, just the right amount of twilight.

The early hour of my Saturday Yoga class and the shortening of the days in September conspired this morning to afford me a few moments of sunrise. Nice gift.

Some days I just can’t resist the clouds, like these monsoon monsters boiling up over the Manzanos, mountains I don’t normally photograph.
I left the house to run some errands and knew immediately that I had to have a photo of these beauties. But the sky changed a lot in the hour I was out. It isn’t what I saw initially, but it was okay when I finally pulled over to take the shot.

I was lolling about at the post office today, waiting while MLW chewed out the postmaster over a grossly late package when I decided to put my idle time to better use. I went outside and took some detail shots of the building. We have a nice looking post office, and interestingly one built largely out of straw bales.
