Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

Chasing the sunset

or,
Why I need a zoom lens


While out camping this week Bobby pointed to the west and gestured for me to grab my camera.



The sun was a blazing red ball of fire falling through the trees.


As I headed toward the bank of the lake for a clear shot, the sun raced me.


 The closer I got to the clearing, the faster it sank.


The buttery ball was disappearing before my eyes.


I never got the 'money shot'.


I breathlessly stopped my pursuit as it slipped from view. 

I will be after you again, Mr Sun.  Me and my zoom lens!

How beautiful! I see a zoom lens in your future! I am so glad you guys got to enjoy some time out camping. I know you had a great time.

I didn't know if she was chasing a herd of deer, a bear, or the sun. I finally decided it was the sun. Wish I'd had my camera with me to photograph her running in hot pursuit through the trees. Now that would have been some real action shots. Betsy

I smiled the whole way through this post, and then laughed my way through Nana's comment! Love them both! :)

(and even without the 'money shot' the pics are pretty!)
