Sunrise To Sunset

After what seems like weeks of cool, damp weather, Saturday was a fairly nice day. We were treated to “two sunrises”. The first one:

Then, the clouds and mist rolled in.

And the sun “rose” again.

That afternoon, we had storm clouds, some wind and a little rain.

Afterward, we were treated to this:

It’s one of my favorite views of the marina, and it doesn’t happen often.  Dark clouds to the east, and the setting sun from the west create an amazing landscape.

From sunrise to sunset, the sky put on quite the show.

Beauty After The Storm

Recently, after a particularly cloudy, stormy day, the sun came out. As my mom used to say: “The sun came out in time to set.”  When the sun comes out late in the day, but there are still dark clouds lingering, it’s grab-the-camera-time.

I love the gold of the marsh grass against the dark blue clouds.

For the past few weeks, we’ve had a pair of Canada geese calling our yard home.  Yes, I wish they’d move on to another location.

Our weather forecasters say we’ll have several days this week with highs in the 70’s.

I feel a severe, wonderful case of spring fever heading this way.
