Grabbed a to go cup of coffee and my camera bag. Was out the door of the RV before daylight on my way to a pulloff spot where I had a good view of the skies over the Wichita Mountains. Capturing a Sunrise was the objective and after only a few sips of the black coffee the fast rise of the sun began!
In less than five minutes the glowing globe seemed to be just comfortably sitting on a cloud and thinking about the twenty four hour journey it was starting. Seems to me that when the Sun sits and thinks, the Heavens take on a Cinnamon color in appearance!
Moonset Over Elk Mountain
After the sunrise shoot all I had to do was pivot the monopod a hundred and eighty degrees to the west to see the sun illuminating the grasses, trees, and Elk Mountain. The full moon was still high in the sky. Seemed to be daring the sun to try and catch it!
Trailer is all packed and loaded. Hope to leave by noon tomorrow. Time to re-start my original plans. Ron and 'Q'--Will see you guys next week at Doris Campgrounds!
