Lunar Phenom

Do not adjust your television...

Last night while driving home my wife and I got into an amusing argument over whether it was hazy outside or not…the streetlights made it look that way, yet I argued that you could see the houses in the distance. Long story short, both silently agreeing that this argument was silly, we spoke no further on the subject.

When We got home we released our hound (I always wanted to say that) to do his business when we looked up to see the moon in full bloom, but due to this “haze” it had also created this light refraction.  It was beautiful and eerie at the same time.  I only photo-edited it by posting two images together, as my lens could not zoom out enough to capture it all, hence the two blue-ish lens-flares above and below the moon.

In the past I have seen this type of weather phenomenon with the sun, but never with the moon.

4th of July weekend – Queen Wilhelmina Lodge trip

Sunset bliss

We decided to take a relaxing road trip on a whim, based on recommendations from my Boss.  We drove across the border to Oklahoma, and then headed east on on Scenic Route 1.  This is a sampling of the pictures from this weekend.  For those who like scenery, and like driving, I cannot think of a better extended weekend trip than this.  for $80 a night it is also cheap.  One day when I have a really sweet set of wheels, I will take this drive again.
