Another Walk in the Park & A Look Skyward

9-13-13 Craig's Crossing 007 This morning, while on my way to view the progress at a construction site, I witnessed this most astounding sky at sunrise. I couldn’t help myself so I stopped and shot several photos. I hope you like orange!9-13-13 Craig's Crossing 0089-13-13 Craig's Crossing 0109-13-13 Craig's Crossing 011After being inspired by what I just witnessed, I again decided to swing by the same local park and take a quick hike and shoot a few more scenery photographs.The park, called Craig’s Crossing (a long forgotten railroad stop), is on the way to our construction site which made it convenient to pause before becoming absorbed in multiple tasks of urgency for the rest of the day.9-13-13 Craig's Crossing 0219-13-13 Craig's Crossing 0229-13-13 Craig's Crossing 0249-13-13 Craig's Crossing 032As I was completing my walk I came upon a Blue Heron standing in the park’s pond, fishing (and doing a fine job of it). I caught him standing and then flying away. I wish I had a higher power telephoto lens, but I was pleased just to see this guy and get a couple of shots. The wing span of these birds is up to four feet and they stand at least three feet tall with neck outstretched. Absolutely beautiful.9-13-13 Craig's Crossing 0459-13-13 Craig's Crossing 058
