McLoughlin Stormy Sunset

Goddess sure is patient with me.  Which is a good thing, otherwise I would really be in trouble.


Take this day, for example.  We loaded up the car, then spent the next eight hours and 300 miles chasing clouds, views and photographs.

We were just over 30 minutes from home when I passed the entrance to the campground that gave this view.  We had never stopped there before and I could already see the clouds over the tree tops.  It’s a narrow road with very limited sight distance, so it took another half mile or so before I could turn around safely.

When I do maneuvers like this without saying a word, which is typical, Goddess knows I have an image in mind.

This image.

McLoughlin Stormy Sunset

There were a few people on the lake side hoping to catch fish.  A few gentlemen approached and asked if I saw the sunset the night before.

I had, but Goddess and I were walking home.  It was glorious.

And I didn’t have a camera.

Needless to say, they let me know how much I had missed it at this specific spot.

No doubt.

Seeing the clearing in the distant west gave me an idea for a hopeful sunset shot from a different vantage.

And it is a good thing that Goddess is patient, since we didn’t get back to the house for another two hours.

    1. That is one of the many nice things here.  When we have clouds, they are almost always moody.  Much different than Germany, where it was mostly a featureless grey blanket.
