Long Day

It was a long day today. We started with a beautiful sunrise this morning. The rays of light streaming through the clouds before the sun topped the hills to the east were lovely so of course I was out with my camera and tripod.

Then we went to the hospital for sister Beth's knee surgery. Eleven hours later everyone but Beth left the hospital. Her daughter Jen has posted about the long day, too. I took the day off work to be there today and tomorrow will help Dad with things Beth normally helps him with as well as other stuff on the computer and around the house.

Jen and I talked about cameras and photography during the long wait for word about Beth. We have decided that we have to take night photos together as she gets wonderful shots of the moon but can't do stars and I am the opposite. So after I got home tonight I tried shooting the moon again. This is the best I have been able to do so far. Better than what I have done in the past but no where near what Jen can do. Still, I am satisfied . . . for now.
Keep Beth in your prayers, please. She is in pain right now but we all believe she will improve and be back on her feet quickly.

That is a BEAUTIFUL sunrise. I love the little rays of light.

Your moon is pretty! I have trouble getting a true color but yours is spot on. Very nice!
