Summer, Please Don’t Leave

Sunrise, two days ago, 5:50 am

The beautiful days continue, although mornings are cool and sometimes misty. Sunrises in August are usually quite spectacular. There seems to often be a few layers of cloud on the horizon, and the sun is now rising at a more oblique angle. At the solstice, the sun rose in between the trees in the above photo. Now, it’s well off to the right.

Evenings are clear. Before I go to sleep, I always stand for a bit looking out of our bedroom windows. For the last few nights, the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) has been hanging just at the tops of the trees, with the North Star (Polaris) directly above a tall fir out our north window. Cassopoeia lies to the east.
Amazing how it all changes so quickly. I’m really not ready for summer to be over. But it’s not, yet. The forecast is for many more sunny days, and last September saw not a drop of rain or cloud.

Yesterday we spent the entire day at “Colette’s” a luxury bed and breakfast on the Olympic Peninsula with extensive, gorgeous grounds, where we were shooting a promotional video and stills for the owners.

Marvelous day and wonderful people. We only lacked the perfect clear sky to get the water shots we needed. The day was mostly blue skies but a sea mist hung around on the horizon and the water looked dull, so will go back as soon as it’s fully clear there.

Still downloading and processing but just had to post these from the still shoot. Love them. Have to get some in my garden next year. Check out the PURPLE stems on the Rue! Wow!

I’m so excited! At last, after months of working on it a bit each day, my Etsy shop is live!!

I’m still getting listings up but it’s live and very gratifying to see my images actually available for sale!
Yay!!
Endless gratitude to the amazing and generous Jessica at Chronically Vintage who SURPISED me this afternoon by a fabulously huge mention in her blog which was the impetus I needed to get this wrapped up. Thank you, Jessica!!!

More soon!
