Saturday Sky Plus

052607Obs_point

I don't belong to the Saturday Sky ring because a) I'm not that much of a joiner, and b) it would require far to much intention on my part to consistently get a Saturday sky photo to share. Today, though, I thought I would share this bit of Saturday sky, which was taken on an overnight visit to my grandmother's - partly for the visit itself and partly to look at possible wedding venues and possible accommodations for guests. Just before the trip, I got a new 28mm/f1.4 lens (38mm equivalent on the digital camera), so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to play with it.

This promontory is Ob's point and used to be in the family (It was owned by Oliver Bunker, whom everyone called Ob on account of his initials). The nearest bit of land visible across the water is the northern tip of Stave Island. When I spent summers with my grandparents as a kid, I would come down here and stay for hours. Someday my ashes will be scattered here, because I can't imagine a Heaven that could top this place.

David & I also took a nice long hike back along the logging road into the woods behind my grandmother's. I took a number of photos of the mosses, lichens and other flora to help with ideas for wedding decorations, so I thought I'd share some of those, as well. Mostly because it's late and I'm too tired to write anything else.

Wow, great shots! You really do good stuff with that camera. How was the venue hunting, are you closer to a decision on a place?

I'm seeing a most beautiful color palette for the wedding.

Very beautiful.
