Word A Day–Surprise

Linking to Nancy’s Word A Day blog. Come and play along! The word for Wednesday is “Drowsy.” No, that wasn’t one of the seven dwarfs. 

Late one afternoon as I headed home from an appointment, the old clock on the dash reminded me the sun would set before long. Hubby was working late, I had no need to hurry home; so I drove around, looking for a good vantage point to take some photos. 

I happened upon a small park and ball field, complete with bleachers and totally empty. The height of the bleachers would allow me to get some shots above the surrounding fence. Now, if i could just get rid of traffic on the adjacent roads…

The skyline is a bit cluttered, but the sun tried to overcome the intrusion.


Panning upward, the sky was quite busy.


A large flock of birds danced across the sky.

After I watched the sun descend in the west, I turned to head back to the car. To my surprise, the moon had been sneaking up behind me.

Moon rising in the east.

  1. What a neat surprise! I had that happen once (and blogged about it) when I was taking pictures of the sunset. I turned to go back inside and there was a rainbow in the sky behind me!


    1. Drowsy is tomorrow’s word, in case anyone wants to join in the fun. Today’s word was “surprise.” Truthfully, I’m probably the drowsy one, the moon is always busy with the tides and such. 🙂


  2. I love your photos of the sky, they are really atmospheric. I like pictures like that because they remind me just how tiny and insignificant I am in the whole scheme of things yet at the same time singularly alone with God. Thank you for sharing them 🙂
