A Rare Sight

It’s a rare sight around here to be able to photograph the sun.  There was just enough cloud cover last night to let it shine through without burning my eyes (I hope).  Today is all about indoor activities, like cleaning out some files, because we’re supposed to hit 113 or higher today.

I heard that Las Vegas, where it will be even hotter than us, has set up temporary cooling stations around the city and in Henderson.  Bravo for you guys!  It might save some folks from heat stroke, especially the homeless.  Stay cool … namaste’

My Very Own Sun Dog

What’s a sun dog, you say?  The technical explanation is best left to someone else (if you know, I welcome your comments).  I just happened to look up in the sky today,  as the clouds are coming in for some more rain.  Then I noticed how the light was reflecting from the sun to the clouds.  Our meteorologist has talked about this on numerous occasions and I finally got a picture of one. Oh, yeah, and the birds are all hanging out on the wires again.  Maybe they’re just getting some extra sun before it went completely behind the clouds.

Sundown … Finally!

After such a hot day today, I decided to see what I could see as it got cooler and the sun was going down.  I saw the light coming through this plant and I like the way it came out.  As usual, I don’t know what the plant is … something that grows naturally in the desert.  Looks like a spider might be starting a web in the first image but I couldn’t find him and was losing the light fast. Have a cool night 🙂
