Where’s Anthy when we need her?

Cowering under the covers, I'm sure.

We had a bright orange moon today, which I didn't quite manage to capture:

Also, standing at the foot of this hill at night often reminds me of the dell in Weathertop - I just mentally erase the houses and let my imagination go wild.

Lovely photos, Jude.

I woke at 4:30 this morning, and was very lucky to be able to look out of my window and see the lunar eclipse - the blood moon. It was seriously uncanny, watching the silver light of the moon being swallowed by the shadowy red. And the brilliance of Mars - it seemed big enough and close enough to touch. The full eclipse lasted for almost 2 hours, and by that stage the moon had set, obscured first by the trees, then by the dawn. It was a really remarkable sight and I wish I could have captured in it in a photo...but alas, I ended up with two fuzzy (but pink!) dots in a sea of black.

We had nonstop rain, thunderstorms and then clouds from 7:00 pm yesterday to 5:30ish this morning. All the plans of going to liberty science center and look at Mars through their telescopes were shot....

Me too! I love all of them, but I particularly love that one.

Thank you all! I am always delighted when a picture comes out well, since I pride (?) myself on being a horrible photographer. :D

Behold! Is that a Black German Shepherd I see shining in the sun in front of me?

I think it's a wolf, actually.

Looks more like a mysterious creature from outer space that just beamed down. Possibly an alien intelligence taking a canine shape after observing Earth. As Dave Barry pointed out, if you see two creatures on a walk, and one carries the other's poop, which would you assume is a dominant species?

It's been a while since I saw something on a bike ride that made me stop turn around and go back to take a picture. I couldn't get close enough to get a crisp image with the phone camera, but it still was worth taking.Image

A heron!

....A heron? Around here that’s what I’d say it was.

In Oregon, you say it questioningly?
