Weekly photo challenge: Rise/set

To illustrate rise, the softest pinks and purples of an early morning sunrise from a quiet cove at Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.


To illustrate set, an ominous sunset after an unforgettable tornado and high winds slammed through Fargo, North Dakota, on an otherwise quiet, mid-summer day.





Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette


This was one of the last photos I took on my quick trip to Iowa last weekend. It had rained earlier, and the sky was full of incredible cloud formations, but it was getting dark quickly. South of Marcus, I saw these 7 identical little storage bins silhouetted against the western sky. (I’m sure they have a name, but I just can’t think of what it would be.) One of my favorites from the trip.
