Between the Saharan dust in the atmosphere, the coming storm, and the sunset, the world had an odd yellow tinge last night. With lightning.
We went out to California last weekend to visit our daughter. She suggested we go hike around Point Dume, where we saw this gorgeous sunset. What a great day!
One of the things I love doing is photographing astronomical events. In 2012, we had two neat ones a few weeks apart: a partial solar eclipse and a transit of Venus. I chose a good spot with a clear view to the horizon for my pictures and went out the night before the transit of Venus to take some test shots. I’m particularly fond of this one.
