Spare Time

People always ask what I do when I'm not fishing or showing real estate...well I'm probably wandering around outside with my camera. I'm fortunate to live in one the most beautiful areas of the country and since I haven't fished much this year, here are a few of my photo subjects.

OK, now you know what I've been up to for the past couple of weeks. but we still have a few fish around as this lady from yesterday shows!

Walked out the door and saw these Sundogs.

Keep your eye out when you have cirrus clouds streaming across and the sun low on the horizon.

(A sun dog or sundog (scientific name parhelion, plural parhelia, from Greek parēlion, (παρήλιον), παρά(beside) + ήλιος(sun), "beside the sun"; also called a mock sun) is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.[1]

Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low.)
