A Yellow Night

The light was intense last night.

We’ve been in a heat wave, and as the sun was setting last night, the air took on a golden hue. When I suggested the kids go outside to play, my son exclaimed, “But it’s yellow!”

And it was.

(I immediately took my camera outside, but only captured a few shots before I got chased back inside by the mosquitoes.)

Light Creeps In

Since it’s dark when I get up, I am usually lucky to see the sun slowly light up my backyard.

I always take a minute to watch through the curtains of my window. Every morning is a little different, sometimes clouds are cast in pink, others the sky turns aquamarine for an instant. This time, the sun catches the trees in a fiery glow.

The light puts on quite a show.

This time, it is golden.
