Forest sunset

As of today my camera is getting a good cleaning, so while that’s happening, I’ve been going through some of my older pictures to post. This is another one that is simple but nice. I love how the sun is surrounded by all of the trees.

I also really love how the sun is right in the middle of a crowded forest, yet it stills stands out. The fact that your able to see it with all of the trees no doubt helps too. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to get my camera back.

Meramec river

So this past weekend I got the chance to go take as many pictures as possible in Emmenegger Nature Park before my camera battery ran out. I had unfortunately forgotten recharge my backup battery prior to going out.Anyway, this picture turned out this one was one of my favorites.

I was just walking along the edge of the Meramec while the sun was reflecting off the river. I think that’s what really makes the picture, at least to me. It was also nice just getting outside to take some pictures.

Your own back yard

As I’ve said before, I really miss going to the parks and taking pictures these days but it’s allowed me to take a closer look in my backyard and neighborhood. Using the sun as a backdrop to try and create some beautiful pictures.

Today’s picture is one I took this morning while the sun came up as I looked out over the neighborhood. I was watching the sun as it reflected off some of the trees. Maybe I’ll take some more  pictures tomorrow.

That bright object in the sky

I know there’s this bright object in the sky that I’ve seen before but, these days all I see are clouds. Now don’t get me wrong I love clouds but tonight’s article has this incredible picture of that “object”, otherwise known as the sun.

Tonight’s article is entitled “These Images Show the Sun’s Surface in Greater Detail Than Ever Before” by Dennis Overbye at the New York Times. I just love the picture!

Circle around the sun

Circle round the sun“, to quote an old Poi Dog Pondering song, “turn, turn, turn“. What a great song! Anyway, I’ve always been fascinated by solar flares and shockwaves.

So today’s article, “For the first time, scientists capture a shockwave bursting from the sun” by Christian Cotroneo over at Mother News Network was a great read. Especially on a day like today, where the sun was nowhere to be found except in a gorgeous sunset.

On the rocks

As someone who has always been interested in solar power, I found it interesting that mother nature in her own way, is yet again one step ahead of us. This article is entitled “Vast Expanses of Rock on Earth’s Surface May Act Like a Natural Solar Panel” by Yasemin Saplakoglu over at Live Science. Just another enlightening idea, courtesy of mother nature.

Here comes the sun

For bees,  it appears that the sun plays a very important role in their lives. According to this article,  entitled “Bees Go Silent During  Total Solar Eclipse” by Russell McLendon over at the Mother Nature Network, it actually sounds like they can’t live without it. Interestingly enough, it turns out the study took place in three states, including my own state of Missouri. So hopefully, the sun will keep showing up.
