Good Morning 9-23-10 (FALL)
WOW....WOW....WOW....WOW!!! Last night and this morning were absolutely wonderful!!!
The Full Moon with Jupiter close by, the Sun precisely over the Equator at 11:09 PM EDT (Fall began), The "Harvest Moon" over the River last night, the Moonset this morning, the Morning Glories with Bumble Bees and finally, a brilliant Sunrise......I'm in OVERLOAD!!!!!
I apologize for so many photos but between last night and this morning I took 178 shots and had a tough time selecting the ones to send you this morning (these are just this morning's)......I'll send a few from last night later.....OK??
The first photo shows the Moon in high clouds and the second shows Jupiter's proximity to the Moon while shows Jupiter just before it set in the trees to the West!!
The next photos are the Moon just before it plunged into the trees......WOW!!
The clouds, the colors, the fishermen, the Sun, the EMPTY NEST, the Morning Glories and Bumble Bees rounded out a very exciting Daybreak for me.......did I say....WOW!!!
PS: I hope Henrietta is in Daytona by now....she wasn't in the nest last night or this morning?? Have fun "Little Lady"!!!
Happy Thursday!! Jack Howison Beaufort, SC

The Morning Glories are fewer and fewer not opening wide until the Sun actually hits them.......it was around 8:00 when it made it over the clouds today...... Happy Tuesday!! Jack Howison - Beaufort, SC
Good Morning 9-29-10

Good Morning 9-30-10
Once again we have heavy clouds left over from the storm
that drenched S. Florida and now Eastern NC!! We only got 1.2" of
rain out of this one but the clouds continue to block the Sun....tomorrow
promises to be much nicer....we'll see??
Lindy (a member in Savannah, GA) commented the other day about the light at Brickyard Landing and it's reflection looking like a cross and I have to say she is right!! I took the first three shots in practically no light and it does resemble a cross!! Good eye there Lindy!!
The Spanish Moss was blowing around again today!
The poor Morning Glories are reaching the end of their road!!
Good Morning 10-8-10

Jack THANK YOU! for the BEAUTIFUL trip through the Morning Glories....
The day started a bit better here on the Gulf at St. George Sound with a blinding sunrise across the Bay. As Danny left for his work at the prison he called from the car to ask me to get a picture of it. As if I didn't have enough already after 16 years of living here. So I took one from the front porch then walked over to the other side of the road to get one with two dead trees in it. The glare was so bright off the water it looked like the bushes were on fire.
Hi ALL! I wanted to say this has been a GREAT JOURNEY! I want to THANK Jack for allowing me to follow and record on my web some of his early morning adventures. He has a WONDERFUL way of viewing and recording God's Great Creations!
"Jack" You helped bring back some WONDERFUL Memories of my Grandparents and their old homestead in the BEAUTIFUL Hill's of West Virginia.
Thank You again Jack! & God Bless You and Yours.
