Red Sky Morning

Sunday, 5 July 2020

I was up late, sitting on the river bank, watching the moon, listening to the bull frogs and really soaking in the beautiful summer night.

I had a realistic dream that it started raining and I jumped up and out of the tent to put the rain fly on. It was so realistic that when it actually started raining, I woke up surprised because I was so sure I had already put the rain fly on! So, out I go to put it on when I see the sky. Wow! It was so beautiful. Once the fly was on, I quickly grabbed my phone and took a few shots. So pretty!

Today was the day I finally snapped a photo of the hummingbird. Most mornings I’m in the wrong spot with the sun shining on him, so he appears as a silhouette. This morning, however, I was in the right spot, at the right time, and strangely enough, my camera was set to Tv when it’s usually set to Av. This setting allowed the wings to be captured which is pretty cool!

And tonight’s sunset had a similar hue to it but the phone didn’t quite pick it up.
