I'd done a little stroll in the green space and got a look at the sky. Wow! There's some smoke in the air from the fires in BC. I started taking photos of it, and mostly gave up on the moon. The action was in the west. I mean, look. There were a few shots from the green space that were ok.
I was really liking the shadow lines in the sky. Then I zipped up to the pedestrian bridge and took a big drink of the colour and forgot about the moon for a while.
A little later.
The hard part about sunrise and sunset is knowing when the show is over. One can wait, of course, but often there are competing urges. Some that are difficult to deal with on a pedestrian bridge above a busy road, with homes only a few yards away. I was really eager to see the photos on the computer screen.
This is from the middle of the road in front of our place.
I didn't totally forget about the moon. From the night before, and last night.
Some days I shake my head at myself. This is a lovely photo, and I didn't have the wit to take the garden hose out of the water and give it a minute to settle down again. Live and learn.
