These photos were taken in the last week or two and (forgive me!) I think they're great. Last week I took my son to the bus and we crossed the road and started up the hill and voila! out of the fog we came! So I grabbed my camera and started shooting as the sun came up and the sky turned from pink to gold to blue. The fog lays like a blanket and the beautiful hills of Don Pedro poke up through it.
Then a few days ago we had a horrible storm here. It poured buckets all night long (my poor horses!) and at 5 AM I was rudely awakened by a huge clap of thunder right over my head! The dog couldn't take it and jumped in bed with me then vibrated with fear so badly I was afraid she'd have a heart attack. The next day the sun came out and we enjoyed scattered showers and long moments of blue skys. This is the sunset from that day. I thought the colors were brilliant! (click on the phot to enlarge it to see the different colors of the sunset.)
Now for the bad news. I can't keep this blog up. As those of you who "follow" me and I follow you, you know I post only occasionally now. I tried to keep it up but it's just not possible. Too much homework, work-work, kid-work, etc. I'll check in on all of you this year but I have to give up regular posts on my blog.
This is not goodbye, just farewell for now!
