The Phoenix Cloud Evening

Wow, the phoenix cloud post went mini-viral on my site 1writeplace.com so I haven’t had time to get the rest of the photos from that evening up here. The phoenix photo still gives me chills. Hope you enjoy these 38 photos.

I got a msg from a blogger friend about how much being near water means to her. I've been in such a funk that I hadn't been out to my beach for days. I grabbed my neighbor and his dog and away we went.  EARLY EVE PHALL PHOTO 2013

    • I jumped out of the truck and told my friend that he’d have to help me up, but I had to get down on the ground and get those shots!
      It feels great to have you compliment them! I have so far to go and a camera with spots inside, but I am tenacious, if nothing else!
