Sunup to Sundown

Yesterday was one of those days that I try to lock in my memory because I enjoyed it so much.   After having our morning coffee, I noticed the sky was lightening to reveal beautiful clouds everywhere.   I took my camera outside to try different settings and see what I could capture.   Harry and Gunny left their hay (shocking!) long enough to get some pets from Mama.   And I stayed outside to enjoy the first half hour of light.   I edited this just a little to bring up the exposure and brighten the photo, but it was naturally spectacular.   

The clouds stayed with us all day and there was a very slight chance of a thunderstorm.   The evening sky was 360 degrees of beautiful.   I was trying to capture every bit of light and almost missed the fact that No. 16 chicken was hanging out under the coop at bedtime.   I always count heads, thankfully, and got her safely to bed.   

I know this is going to be another nice day with clouds in the forecast. is my Birthday!   More pretty photos soon but right now, I have a hot cup of coffee with my name on it.

I love September, it makes me smile.   Enjoy your day.
