I'm getting in early this week (or late depending on your point of view and time zone) and posting my SkyWatch effort today as I will have to unfasten my safety cord and leave my computer alone for a week or so. Flying solo - scary thought!
This was the sunset at Lethbridge, Alberta last Sunday evening and it had "blog" written all over it - I slammed on the brakes of the car and skidded to a halt at the side of the road, much to the amusement of my front seat passenger and fellow road users. Well, OK, they probably weren't that amused.
I then opened my friend's side window, allowing the cool Lethbridge breeze to come in and gently tousle her hair.
An alternative point of view, I suppose, might be that when I opened the window, a Force 10 gale burst through the vehicle, whipping up bags, maps and small children, and which trashed any idea of a maintaining a hairstyle for any of the occupants. People say Lethbridge is the windy city - flippin' heck - they aren't kidding.
Anyway, then I delicately leant across her, shoving my elbows in her face, just to capture these beautiful colours. She was suitably impressed with my dedication to you guys - just after fishing her hairbrush out of her bag.
Again, apols for the grainy quality - it's the point-and-shoot mini camera again - but you get the idea.
Have a great weekend, everybody.
Back in a while!
