Look Up, What Do You See?
Do you ever take the time just to look up at the sky and enjoy the beauty of the clouds and the awesome colors?
Whether it is daylight or dark, the sky can be a fascinating painting offering intense colors and shapes to fuel our imagination. This weekend many have been able to enjoy the first of three Supermoons that will be visible this year. In addition, in our area we had a storm blow through south of us that was visible in the clouds (an awesome sight).
Today, even though I should be sharing book reviews, I’m sharing a number of photographs I took recently. The first photos are of the Supermoon. I tried a few shots at the normal setting (above and below) and then I zoomed in, bringing it into focus as much as I could.
The next photo is just a shot of the night sky over one of our pastures. The clouds were so dark as the sky was changing from blue to night.
The last few photos are of the thunderstorm that hit south of where we live. The storm produced up to 3 inches of rain in a short time, causing flash flood warnings. We didn’t even get a sprinkle out of it.
As the night sky lit up like someone shooting off fireworks in the clouds, I tried to get a photo of the lightning. It was awesome inside the clouds, occasionally bursting through. As you can tell, I managed only one shot and it was all that great. A little different post today, but I promise to have reviews for you in the next few days. This coming week there will be a couple of authors visiting (with giveaways) and scheduled book reviews for tours.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing day and have time to pick up a good book or two. Do you see any images in the moon? Did you take photos of the Supermoon or are you going to try tonight? Have you ever captured lightning on film during a storm?
Hi, I'm Mason Canyon and I love reading and that is why I do reviews. I post them here, as well as several other sites such as Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. If you are an author who would like for me to review your book or you would like to guest blog here, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org These reviews are done for the love of a good book, not for monetary rewards.
