Sunrise…Sunset…

Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday.  We certainly did.  Aside from lovely company, I was able to actually make an edible turkey.  LOL!  I brined it in a five gallon bucket of a mixture of seven quarts of water and one and a half cups of salt.  Then, I cooked it at 250 degrees for about six hours.  It could have cooked for about an hour less, but it worked.  Yummy!

The day after Thanksgiving found my brother, my nephew, my doggy, and myself at Foundation Park for the setting of the moon and the rising of the sun.

I’m glad that we went to the park when we did.  The next day was gray and rainy and cold.

But, later in the day, when it stopped raining, I popped Toby in the truck and we went to the Kokosing Gap Trail in town.  I am so glad we did!

I was just walking along and suddenly noticed the clouds clearing and the sun coming out and it was low in the sky and I could see that I was about to be treated to a wonderful sunset.  I clicked and clicked and danced and had some fun and poor Toby patiently waited.  We would walk a few feet and I would see another composition among some new trees.  What fun!  I got a couple dozen shots, but I will just share a few of the best ones.

  1. Wow! Ginny, Your every angle is made just right for the next “click” to come! Love the metal work at Foundation Park….the moon and sun rise and settings were amazing; to think that you got them in the same moment! Such timing and such beauty. You’re seeing God’s creation and serving it to us on a royal platter! Photography at its best with you behind the lens. loved the continuous clicks of the sunrise as viewed through the trees! You go, girl!
