I do not have a zoom lens and this was taken with my cell phone camera, but I like it anyway.  There are so many colors in those clouds and the whole fuzzy effect is vaguely impressionistic.

Color Me Pink

I am lately obsessed with color –  bright brilliant color. 

Shopping for something new this afternoon, I bypassed shades of gray, maroon, brown,

and leaned to yellows, oranges and pinks.

I linger over technicolor versions of life in magazines brashly, brazenly heralding Spring.

The marketeers know we are mostly fed up in this part of the world with winter blahs,

and they plot to capitalize on our yearnings for color like the color of the sky at dusk.

The Virginia sky at dusk is sometimes the color of Spring!

Moonrise

Long ago, when Bill and I were young dreamers, he said, “One of these days in our lifetimes, we will put a man on the moon.”

I thought he was crazy or maybe a genius, but of course his prediction came true.  Even so, with all our technological advances,  I have never been able to snap a good photograph of the moon.

Last year  all photos were taken with my little cell phone, but moonshots were  immediately deleted because they were tiny unrecognizable  spots of light.

Then Bill gave me a new camera “pal” for my birthday.  It did take impressively clear pictures but still refused to enlarge the moon.

For Christmas he gave me a new lens for the new camera – a zoom lens!

And a blue moon was rising.

This photo is the  first moonshot I have ever revealed.

It may not match the many other professional closeups of our moon, but it reminds me of that dreamy night so long ago.

Misty Morning Mountain View

If you are tired of looking at my mountains, I understand.  But I am addicted to gazing.

Let there be Light 1Then I race for the camera, addicted to sharing magnificent views.

And since my wide eyed vistas of the same mountain range change and change again, you blogger friends are force fed  eternal photographs.

Ah Well.

The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia as I see them through my kitchen window or deck, are eternally addictive.  Mountains Clearing Best

Perhaps I need an “intervention.”
