Northwest Sky at Sunrise

Northwest Sky at Sunrise

I missed the sunrise, but I caught the pink afterglow in the northwest sky.

October Morning Sky

Northern Sky at Sunrise

Sunrise Over Wright Quad

Another well timed mosey to the coffee maker, which included a walk by the windows. I didn’t think we’d get much of a sunrise this morning, because it was cloudy, but I was wrong.

Sunrise Over Wright Quad

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Perfect dog walking weather this morning (mid-50sF), and critters are active. We saw deer and a fox today.

I forgot to look for my eclipse glasses, so I was only able to view it indirectly. No complaints, though. Leaves make a lovely pinhole camera.

Did I mention that we had a lightning strike last weekend? It fried my modem, requiring a call to Comcast (I hate phones!) and a visit from a technician to install a new
modem, because our local service center no longer carries equipment.

And then I found that the Ethernet card on my computer had also been fried. I got a USB wireless adapter, for short term, but ordered a new Ethernet card from Amazon. That arrived today.

I turned on my computer, to uninstall the old Ethernet card, shut down, physically installed the new card, tried to tuen the computer back on, aaaaand bupkis. I think the motherboard is dead.

The food news is that the hard drive is probably fine, and if it isn’t, it’s pretty well backed up. I may lose some email and a couple of day’s worth of work, but that’s not the end of the world. Being temporarily computerless might be the end of the world, though!

We had a nice little storm, with a bonus rainbow.

I got to sleep in long enough this morning that the sun was rising while I walked the dog. That never happens.

It’s supposed to storm all afternoon, so this is probably as good as it gets.

The sky wasgorgeous this afternoon, when I was out walking the dog. Obviously, these images are edited. I think of them more as paint sketches than photography, which is true of pretty much anything I take a picture of. It’s all paint on a canvas, to me.

Western Sky at Sunrise

Western Sky at Sunrise

The big show this morning was in the west. No actual Belt of Venus visible, but the western “sunrise” here is caused by the same process: the sunrise in the east is reflected on the sky (or in this case clouds) in the west.
