Here a Fence, there a Moon, Everywhere a Turtle...

Depending on which way you 'look' at it, this is on the front side [or back] of the ship channel in Port Aransas Texas. At some distance, behind the fencing [it's a gated community with fancy-smanchy homes] to the right is the Auto Ferry to drive aboard and cross the channel. To the left, driving down the paved road, you can eventually park your vehicle and fish off the pier or embankment or go even farther down the road to park at the hiking/biking/birding trailhead at Charlie's Pasture.

Olympic [-2004] Color Commentators - thru the voices of the 'innocent':

1. At a rowing medal ceremony: "...isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew." [cox is the lead person who steers the boat]

2. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. You can see it all over their faces."

3. Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere! It's like they have eleven Dicks on the field!"

4. Softball commentator: "If history repeats itself, I think we can expect the same thing."

5. Boxing analyst: "Sure there have been some injuries, even deaths. But none of them really that serious."

A "Mackerel Sky"

A Mackerel Sky is most often created by: an old, disintegrating frontal system. The cloud was probably originally altostratus and has been broken up into altocumulus as the weather front disintegrates (usually as a result of encountering an area of high atmospheric pressure). Little, if any rain most often follows a mackerel sky. Another insight: "Mackerel in the sky, three days dry," I personally think this photo I took a few months back really resembles a fish carcass?! What do you think?

Full Moon at Sunrise

When I went out early one morning last month, the pink clouds at sunrise were quickly passing overhead and sometimes drifted over the view of the full moon. I thought it was pretty. Tho the photo is somewhat blurred 'cause I had to point and shoot before the cloud-cover left the side of the moon view, I still wanted to share it.
