Early Chrystaline Morning

The sunrise recently turned the icy morning crystalline.

The two tree trunks are from two different trees. They are such a curiosity and are where I can easily see them from the computer. There’s actually at least ten feet between the two where they appear to meet near the top.

The ice effects only lasted a short time.

Earth’s Shadow

When my best friend, Therese, emphatically said, “I didn’t know that!” I knew there was a blog.

Before the sun clears the horizon in the morning, it casts a shadow of the earth in the atmosphere in the west. I hurried out at 6:30 this morning to capture the blue of the shadow. The shadow tapered downward to the north and south. It didn’t last long. Obviously it’s the earth rotating, not the sun rising.

This happens in the reverse in the evening. After the sun sinks below the horizon, the earth’s shadow rises in the east.
