Day 90

Here is the second night’s moonrise NOT from a cellphone! ~Curtis in /-\rizona! {!-{>

Day 89

The night after the moonrise from the road to Jerome, the Dailylife Wife and I went out to photograph it without the red rocks.  iPhone8 photo. ~Curtis in /-\riZona! {!-{>

Day 42

Walter and I went up to Sedona to find a spot with the full Moon coming over the red rocks in the sunlight.  It clouded up and was a no-go.  I got this nice five photo panorama though! ~Curtis in /-\riZona! {!-{>

Day 347, 2010… Coming home on Tuesday presented me with an interesting atmospheric phenomenon:  Anticrepuscular Rays.  The beams of sunlight you see during a sunset (and sunrise, too, I presume) are Crepuscular Rays.  Anticrepuscular rays are the same sunbeams of light, on the opposite side of the horizon from the sunset.  Despite the apparent fanning effect, […]
