Towse: views from the hill

Red sky at morning …

Filed under: Uncategorized — Towse @ 9:30 pm

The day’s grey with splatterings and splashings of rain. The chimes sing in the breeze.

I should’ve known we wouldn’t have another sun shiny day like we’ve been having for the past days. … the sunrise was glorious.

Red sky at morning, sailor take warning.

… There are white caps on the Bay. The rain whips against the windows.

Click on the thumbnail for the morning shots.

Got out on the deck about 6:30a because I could tell the sunrise would be marvelous. The shots were taken with a Nikon CoolPix 5600. The first thirteen were taken with a tripod, but that hampered the shot taking, so I ditched the tripod. The first twenty-seven shots taken with “scene” set at dusk/dawn. Next five taken with “scene” set at “museum,” which means that pressing the “take a picture” button takes a series of pictures at once and then chooses the one with the least jiggle.

The true color of dawn was somewhere between the two variants.

I especially liked this one: Wanderlust.

The day began beautiful and marvelous and continues on despite the white caps, grey skies and drizzle. It’s a wonder anyone wants to live here. This ol’ city is always so grey and foggy and cold.
