Yeah! Once again one of my photos was used for the Sierra Club’s Daily Ray of Hope Newsletter. I love the quote they picked to go with my photo this time. I’m pretty excited.

Photo Hunt – Clouds

This week’s theme for the Photo Hunt is clouds. I’m going to do something I’ve never done… I’m going to post more than one photo. Why you ask? I can’t decide which one to use, so you’re getting to see all the candidates.

Taken in February 2006, in the air over Tampa Bay, Florida. There were tornado warnings going on all day. We had to wait in the airport for seven hours before we were allowed to take off and even then there were black clouds and lightening happening all around. Pretty scary, but beautiful.

Taken in June 2008 at English Bay, Vancouver, Canada. We were in Stanley Park. Gorgeous park and some great photo opportunities.

Taken in January 2008 at Lake Mead, Nevada. The sunsets in Nevada can be breathtaking, especially when air force jets have made trails that catch the light.

Taken in September 2007 at Morecambe Bay, Britain. This bay is famous because at low tide you can walk the 11 miles across, with a guide. There’s quicksand, hence the need for the guide.

Taken in July 2007 at Quabbin Reservoir, Massachusetts. Central Massachusetts is beautiful.

Taken in July 2007 at Davis Lake, Oregon. This was one of the coolest cloud formations I’d ever seen. Hat, stack of pancakes, uh… you name it. Just very cool looking. Karen actually spotted it and then I shot it.

Photo Hunt – Bright

Bright Night Lights, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.

I’m late with the photo this week, and very late for my previous entry, but better late than never as they say. I took this one this last week while strolling around Victoria Harbor. I was there for a few days of R and R.  The lights are amazingly bright on the Parliament Building, which is lit up every night.
