The Club set up to play Halloween golf tonight. The illuminated fairways got me out the door.
My sister Leila is visiting friends in the desert for a few days and she made time for us to spend time together most of the morning. I met Lee at Big Horn around 6am. It was still too dark to go on our planned golf course hike.
We walked a 100 yards uphill from the house Lee is staying in and watched the morning color, taking turns using the colored sky as a backdrop for first my silhouette and next hers.
Two Snowy Egrets. You can’t see the small yellow loral spot before the eye of the Egrets, but I did when I enlarged the photo. I just read the spot is red when the bird is breeding.
This worker drove by with his headlights on while I was out shooting the setting moon around 6:20am the other morning. The worker drove by and never looked up, obviously sparing me the embarrassment of being seen in my pjs.
Early this morning I shot some more moon shots but accidentally deleted them when I formatted my camera card as suggested before updating the Canon 5D Mark II with the newest firmware update. Wasn’t too concerned with the lost photos as they weren’t great.
We left home at 7:45am headed for Lake Arrowhead. Ray spoke at a meeting located in the Lake Arrowhead Fire Station. I was asked to lead the meeting. Cindy and Jim who have a second home in Lake Arrowhead, friends of ours from MHCC, met us at the meeting. As previously planned, they took us to lunch at their Country Club followed by a golf cart ride to check out the back nine holes of their golf course.
Before returning home we stopped by their incredibly beautiful newly remodeled/redecorated lake view home. Home envy was going on big time.
Some photos from the day:
Ray and I visited Cindy and Jim’s newly remodeled/decorated home located in a gated lake view area in Lake Arrowhead.
Their artwork is beautiful. Two pieces caught my photographer’s eye:
Went to bed early last night and wasn’t surprised when at 4am this morning I awoke and knew I was getting up.
When I noticed the moon outside the kitchen window at 4:15am it was all over and I was outside the door shooting and setting camera settings, trying to learn more about night photography.
Around 6:20am, after occasionally coming inside to look at my photos on the computer, the first hint of color hit the sky behind me. Walking across the lawn to the 17th hole lake I set up for the morning light show.
The golf course workers started showing up around 7am. They don’t blink an eye when they see me, again, out with my camera, in my pajamas.
I took the last shot of the moon at 7:20am just before I headed back into the house and Ray’s, “Good morning”.
