I was out walking with Ligia at dusk, and thought this opportunity too good to pass. A jet was leaving a perfect contrail behind it, right above our heads. Taken in North Bethesda, MD.


Great day to be alive

It was mid-afternoon and I couldn’t believe how beautiful the sky was. These puffy white clouds were strewn about like cotton candy. I had to get my camera and take photos. Just had to. Of the photos I got that afternoon, I think I like this one best. It looks as if you can climb onto those trees at the bottom, then keep going up from cloud to cloud until you reach heaven itself. It’s my stairway to heaven.🙂

The sky really was this radiant that morning. I was as amazed to see it as you are now (I hope) and quickly got my camera out. I’ve never seen a sky like that before, and I don’t know what caused those cloud formations. All I know is that it looked fantastic.


In the morning when I think of you

This is what greeted me when I woke up.

Watch the sky

A long exposure at night, from my terrace. Taken in North Bethesda, MD.

Watch the night sky

The sky at sunset

The evening sky, in particular during those moments when the sun is just about to go down below the horizon, gets me every time. I took a series of photos last evening, and wanted to share the more notable ones with you. Photos are from North Bethesda, MD.







Toward that goal

Bend in the fabric


Burning embers


Toward night

Last struggle
