Wimping Out

Today, as everyone in our area is keeping a wary eye on Hurricane Matthew, I find it difficult impossible to get creative with a blog post.

So I’m taking the easy way out and sharing some recent sunrise/sunset shots.

Sunsets are always so dramatic when they come at the end of a cloudy day. My mom would say: “The sun is coming out in time to set.” This was on September 14.


The sun is rising later now, of course, than it did during the summer. So I am able to catch the darkness just before the dawn. This was the sunrise on September 23.


Another sunrise, this one a few days later, on September 26.


And finally, last night’s sunset, with a rather ominous sky.


“Tune in” Friday when I’ll share some memories and photos of hurricanes that I recall.  We’re all hoping, but mostly praying, that our forecast will have changed by that time, and that Matthew will be heading out to sea rather than aiming for the east coast.

Update: the latest track takes Matthew away from the coast before it reaches Virginia.  It can change course again, but this overnight update is good news for our area….now if this track will just continue….

  1. All these are beautiful, but the first with the reflection is my favorite. In Fall and Winter the sunrises and sunsets so much more colorful because of less humidity to diffuse the color. It has been a treat for the senses. Thank you for posting these on the water, as mine are over barnlots! Look forward to Fridays “Views of Hurricanes Past! Sure am hoping for a glancing blow for Virginia.

  2. All always, your sunrise and sunset photos are candy for my eyes. They never get old. I heard that change in the forecast this morning also and am joining the prayer for Matthew to head out to sea without dropping in for a visit.

  3. Hoping the east coast is safe from Matthew and all is well in your area. Your update is encouraging, fingers crossed!

  4. Praying all my southern coast friends stay safe.

    Beautiful shots, Dianna. I too pray that your update stays correct. Be safe ❤

  6. Yes- the new forecast is hopeful … We don’t need another Isabel, or something 3 or 4 times as bad ..
    Awesome pics , but I’d have to say that the sunrise on the 26th is my favorite here !

  7. Looks like Virginia and much of NC will be safe if the current track stays on course…….Fingers crossed!


  8. Lovely photos. You & your family is on my mind and in my prayers. I hope Matthew weakens and goes out to sea without doing anymore damage.
    Take care and stay safe.

  9. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
