Peach Puffs


These photographs were taken on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 7:25 AM.


The location was from the small back porch at my home in Beltsville, Maryland.


The "Take It!" came as I stepped out to pick up the newspaper which I have delivered to my house.


What I found when taking a quick glance at the sky was this set of small puff clouds which had been colored in a shade of peach in the morning sunrise.  It was a rare occasion and had me quickly turning to go back inside the house to get my camera with the hope I could make the moves fast enough to catch the ever changing sunrise dynamics.  I was lucky enough to capture these few shots before the color began to fade as the sun came further up in the sky.


Nature has some wonderful shows put on for us.  All we sometimes need to do - is keep ourselves ready to see them and take them in.  I count such sightings as being note worthy, in my little mental book, in the chapter on things which have made each day a gift.


Wishing everyone my very best,

    My daughter says if you cross your eyes it looks like the sky is on fire.

    One of the things I love about retirement is that I get to sit out on the porch each night and watch the sun set. Occasionally we get one like this.

    I had an art teacher in high school that used to say "nature is the worlds best artist." I think he might have been right.

    Thank you for all of your comments and observations. The quote from a former art teacher - I hope rang true to everyone as it did me. Thanks for sharing it The retirement benefit of time to watch sun sets - is ever so true. We used to do it every evening whe our family moved to Tucson from NJ. We just could not get enough of them not having seen many of them with such complete sky coverage as we saw there. I am ready for that new cereal - followed by the flavor of ice cream chosen by Jim. Sally - I hope you did not cross your eyes to try your daughter's suggestion. My parents tried to disuate me from doing that by telling me that if I did not stop doing that my eyes would stay that way - lucky for me - they always bounced back - lol. Teri - thank you for your high complement. Wishing everyone my best Bruce
