No Fishing!

We had some very pretty skies during a recent visit to our local park. As you may have guessed, we're home (not visiting the desert) for these shots. I happened to notice the skies before heading over to the park so I grabbed my DSLR with wide angle lens on the way out the door, and glad I did!

Here's my granddaughter riding her bike over the "no fishing" bridge, with my wife in the background. This man made cement "lake" is only a couple feet deep. The park stocks it with fish (catch and release only), and they don't want people fishing off the bridge.

A perfect spot to sit and watch the moon rise!


 Reflected sunset.

 My personal favorite from the evening.

I took this pretty shot of the moon nestled in the clouds after we got home from the park and I could grab my telephoto lens. Hope your week was a good one!

  12. It's enough to make me break down and buy a DSLR and some software - what gorgeous photos (especially the moon nestled in the clouds). But maybe I should master my iPhone SE first.

  33. wow, taht´s a beautiful sky. Glad you took yoru camera :)

    Re your remark on the coyote: the coyote is not tame. As I saw it, it treated us the same way as the nearby bisons. It is used to bison, it is used to people. They were just passing by. Not in "huntingmood".
