I have to admit that I’ve been a bit disappointed and frustrated with my move. I’ve not been grading papers (thankfully), but my general schedule has changed in such a way that I’m not looking at things in the same way at the traditional times. And my location leaves me with a uncharacteristic pessimism.
Wrapping up a long day of studying and Khan Academy, I glance outside and see something that I’ve not seen in over a month. It’s a warm (maybe hot) glow of magma. I step out onto my porch to survey the time–have I missed it? Do I have time? I grab my D300 and make it downstairs and outside in time to catch these.
I shot until it was over–until the magma turned to embers. Then I came back to the apartment to process. I’d not been this excited in awhile; shoot and then process immediately.
While I’m at it, I’ll post a photo of some vultures (?) that I was not terribly excited to process or post. But the sunset–that was worth every second tonight. Thanks, Mother Nature!
