The Skies of September

I usually end the month with a look back at photos that didn't make it on to the blog. So, here are a few of them. Interestingly, it was all about the sky in September, and that's mostly because it was a such a foggy foggy month. When the fog would finally lift, I had to run outside to see the rest of the sky that had been hidden for so long. Here is a bit of what it looked like.







This last photo was first sunrise we had seen all summer. That's how foggy it has been here. As I type this, the fog has returned. Good thing I have a photo to remember!

  1. Great sky shots, I love seeing clouds but most of the time I forget to take a photo of them. Must try harder

  2. Getting your "blue" fix! And the sunrise is really nice, too. We're finally getting two days of real rain here on the Piedmont of the East Coast after 1-1/2 months of no precipitation and above normal temperatures. Sorry about your endless fog, but it would have been nice if some of that moisture had made it here.

  4. If this were some kind of rorschach test, I'd have said, "Sistine Chapel" for the next to last photo. I absolutely love it! I wish I could paint the ceiling in my house just like that.

  5. Oh, beautiful for spacious skies. Sorry you've had so much fog. I drove down the mountain in pea soup this morning.

  6. Oh dear, September is over??? Not possible. Loved your trip through the clouds and so glad you finally got to see a sunrise. Being scarce makes them all the more appreciated.

  7. Bill-- You do take wonderful sky photos! Glad you like these.

    Scott-- Yes, exacty, my "blue fix." I really couldn't believe that I hadn't seen a colorful sunrise all summer, but I hadn't. This one made up for all that. Glad you are getting some rain there. We're actually expecting a bit of rain this weekend as well. Pretty early for California, even this far north.

    Barbara-- We do love the air here. It's wonderful being so far away from any major city. I don't know why it surprises me that you have fog. Mmmm.

    CCorax-- I'm so glad you like that photo. Interestingly, I took that photo about one hour after the sunrise shot. The sky was beautiful that day.

    NC-- Love that "oh beautiful for spacious skies"-- yes yes yes! Fog there too...so interesting. I always think of it as a coastal thing, I guess not!

    Arkansas Patti-- September just zipped by didn't it. I'm hoping for a beautiful October with lots of clear brisk days and plenty of sunlight.
