Weekly photo challenge: Horizon

The Weekly photo challenge is Horizon.
So many places where the sky meets the earth around the world, and millions of interactions between two elements. It can be water, a city skyline, a forest, a wasteland, a desert, a sunset outside your bedroom window.
I took this the other morning. The sun was just coming up so the mountains were still dark, but the sky was so blue.

The wild horses have been coming around a lot lately. The other morning they were crossing a busy road. You have to be careful not to hit them. These were across the street in a field. The sun was starting to go down and it lit up the grass all yellow. The sky looked a little hazy.
You can see the horizon at the ocean really well. I love being at the beach. You can see forever.

My son got two pairs of paper glasses to view the eclipse from school. I started going outside around 5:20 PM. You could see the moon just coming near the bottom edge of the sun. You could see the sun really well through the dark, dark glasses. At one time, when I took off the glasses, the sun hit me in the eyes and it was blinding bright. I thought “Oh no, I burned my eyes, I will be blind.” I only looked at it for a second, but it was so bright. It took a while for the black spot to dissappear from my vision. At about 6:00 PM, the moon was starting to cover more of the sun. I stood there and watched it edge over the sun. The sun was cresent shaped. Then the moon started to cover more and more of the sun. It was looking like it was starting to get dark outside.

Then the clouds started forming and covered the sun. “NO”. I stood there waiting for a peak of the sun, with the moon in front of it.

I stood there looking and looking and finally the clouds parted and the moon was over the sun. It looked like a shiny gold ring around the moon. It looked amazing. I lifted up my camera to take a picture but it was too bright. I did capture some neat sun rays and if you look, you can see a reflection that must have been made in the blue part of the sky. A circle that is bright but has a dark center.

 The clouds then covered the sun and when I could finally see it again, the moon was just covering the top corner of the sun. I did get to see it though, it was wonderful. I guess the next one will be 35 years from now. I told my son he will be 49 years old then. He can remember that he saw it this year.

Weekly photo challenge: Blue

The weekly photo challenge is Blue. (I was wondering what happened, it was not posted this weekend.)

I saw this cloud in the sky yesterday. The sky is blue. The cloud reminded me of the shape of hair.

I love playing the slots on Facebook. I can play for free and get virtual money. I hit a big jackpot on this one game last night. It would have been an even better jackpot if the blue (or green) did not pop up in the rows of diamonds. I never get this lucky on real jackpots in the casinos. I wish it were real money.
