RECENT MAGICAL sunset


A RECENT SUNSET.
MAGICAL.
MOUNTAIN LOOKS NICE HERE, BUT IT'S GETTING VERY POPULATED.
I'LL HAVE TO SHOW YOU A
BEFORE (WHEN I STARTED)  vs
THE SCULPTED MOUNTAIN FORESTS of TODAY.

RAINBOWS

We've been having a warmer than normal winter so  far.
This week is frigid.
Yesterday, Sunday January 10, 2016, it was warm - upper 40's to low 50's. YAY!!!
It was raining at times, and drizzling at times.

The sun started peeking out around 11am, with a drizzle. then...
RAINBOW!!!



As we traveled from Plains by the river, past Wilkes-Barre, 
there were some dramatic clouds in the clearing sky. 


 Early afternoon, here's the SECOND STUNNING RAINBOW!
Looking through the barren winter branches in the back yard.

friday the 13th full moon

My 1st post after a long pause is of a moon I saw early this morning. 

       FULL MOON 
(I believe specifically it's the day after, but what a beauty!)
and it's on FRIDAY THE 13TH!

Wilkes-Barre area looking west toward the Back Mountain, NEPA, where the local highway cuts through the mountains.
MY mountain ;-)

There's also a female cardinal photo pecking at seeds after a recent snowfall below.

Some Spring Summer blossoms

My, it's been a while! 
I've been busy... chasing butterflies, birds, clouds in the sky...
Hope you've enjoyed Spring.              Now it's summer.

1st 2 photos are of a tiny purple flower growing in the bushes. I never saw all that detail before!! COOL!
((There's a link below to a flowers page where my photography is included  & for sale))


You see part of my thumbnail in the next photo. 

May rhododendron blossoms opening. PRETTY! 

this bee is too busy eating pollen to enjoy the beauty of the blossoms. 


I used a dramatic setting on my camera to achieve this interesting effect.

Weather drama

After missing most of the snow and stormy weather this winter season, we're getting some snow now that is actually sticking to the ground, here in NE PA, USA.

BEAUTIFUL!

Stay safe out there! The photo is a different day,, still as exhilarating as any beautiful wonder of nature!

RAINBOWS!

A few days ago we had warmer than normal temps, with rain.
just before a cold front moved in.

I saw TWO BEAUTIFUL RAINBOWS, one late morning:



 Then we got back on the road. Dramatic clearing clouds in the sky while passing Wilkes-Barre.


 Early afternoon, here's ANOTHER rainbow!
Views from our backyard. 





The entire arch touches down in front of the mountains on the west side of the Susquehanna River.
