FIRE IN THE SKY

Welcome to the last week of October, hard to believe that the month is already gone, my my how they do fly.

I’ve been leaving later and later each morning because the sun is not coming up until almost 8:00am. This morning I looked out the window at 7:35 and saw some pink in the clouds to the east. I wondered to myself if it would turn into anything. A few minutes later it started to ignite. I scrambled to get on my walking shoes and coat, grabbed my camera and out the door. By that time it was at its peak so I quickly snapped a shot from my driveway. This should give you an idea of what it looked like.

I walked as fast as I could to get down to the cove before it all went away. By the time I got there, one and a half blocks away, it was pink. I managed to get two more photos before it was gone. This is Mt. Baker with a little hint of the bright morning sun near the right side of the peek.

Down on the cove is one of my favorite houses. I call it “Popeye’s House” because it looks like place he might have lived. It was really pretty with the pink water in the foreground.

I did manage to fine one more scarecrow that’s presented by Toby’s Tavern. The reference to is to them movie “Practical Magic” which was filmed in Coupeville back in 1998.

I stopped to check our my “still life” again this morning and the flowers were gone but the pumpkin and apples still made for a nice photo.

  1. Runnerduck, Thanks for taking the marvelous picture of the Coupeville sky “on fire”. As you know I carry binoculars instead of a camera so was not able to capture this magnificent sight.
    I have saved your picture.
