I Saw Humans In The Air

And this is why it's important to keep up the discipline and routine of getting outdoors every day. Just imagine what I'd miss if I wasn't there to see it!

The Morning Moon Unset, The Jet Trails Newly Forged & The Trail Sign
It was a crazy morning lineup.

Whether I want to be or not, I seem to be constantly reminded to make choices that matter and are conscious, to question and sometimes resist the drive to stay the course out of pure habit. It's possible to continually choose to remain on the chosen trail even when that trail has pivots, changes, new directions. That doesn't mean the core has veered away from the good stuff or the most right stuff. The surprises are so often where gold is found. Mine it.

Humans At Sunset, We All Had The Same Idea
We Were All Entranced

It felt like a sunset party, so many of us pulled to the spectacle by the waves and the colorful sinking orb of warmth and light. I was part of something bigger. Most of us were recording it. It was hard not to want to capture and keep that beauty.

Looking Up
There's Always More To See

There's always something else to focus on. We get to choose. It's a matter of paying attention.

#TheSniperMind - it's in everything.

As The Crow Flies
In Retrospect

This little guy and I had a moment or two at the beach late Sunday afternoon. It was chilly and fairly breezy. A welcome change from the weather in the foothills at our house where it was still quite hot and still.

He's small in the frame but he was large in my attention. I made an album of the sequence, to record those moments, but my two favorites are his bullet-like silhouette in the air and his cartoon stance at the tip of the tide. I really had no idea precisely what I was actually capturing while it was happening.

You may need to zoom in to spot him. Especially in the 3rd photo.

The Night Of Impossible Rain
It Simply Does Not Do This Here Now

We had lightening strikes in the evening up until we went to bed. Rain and the sounds of thunder all night. As the weather transitioned, the sky was eerie. Split in two. Yellow and blue.

While we relish the moisture, love the sound of the rain, love thunder and lighting even more (when it's accompanied by rain and less dangerous for wildfire) and need the water, it's odd. It's still dry season.

It's a happy dance with a bit of a raised eyebrow.

It's Still Burning & Increasing In Acreage
We Are Safe

It's an eery feel to the world. The sun is a red disk.
We are safe where we live but we have friends not so lucky who have had to evacuate.

Fiery Evening Sky
Clouds, Smoke & Ash

This is what it looked like yesterday evening when there was a flare of the Whittier Fire in Santa Barbara about 20ish miles away over the pass. A view from in front of our house.

A Sky With No Details
Fog In The Morning

I want to melt into it. Just to see what happens.

The Wall, The Clouds, The Tippy Tops Of The Mountains
I Can't Help But Wonder If They've Been Introduced

There's an odd tension, like a secret they have and most definitely aren't telling. Wish I could wrangle it out of them. I'll bet it's a doozy.
