… of the year. Went to shoot bluebirds with a friend in the morning, found none so we had treats at Wildflower Bakery before coming home. Merry Maids did the last cleaning of the year, One and I went out for her hunt and then to the airport to get my last flight of the year in and landed about an hour before the storms moved in. It’s cool, raining and time to wrap the day and enjoy several days of rain before the sun comes back.
I took this shot from roughly over uptown looking to the north. The edge of Wilson Mountain is in the lower left corner of the image and this is the part of the mountain that an earthquake (s) cut off from the main part, dropped it about 400’ and shifted about a quarter mile. It cut the cone in two pieces … would have been a heck of a ride! In the lower right corner Munds canyon cuts up to the right towards Munds Park and to the left Oak Creek Canyon wends first to the left and then cuts back right on the way up to Flagstaff. Roughly the top 2000’ of the San Francisco peaks are in clouds and the sun was starting its descent so a slight soft glow; Mt. Elden is far right.
Back Monday … just wanted to share the last aerial of the year. Smile and share it with those whom you meet and greet … do keep breathing.
But from the brooding beauty of the night, and daily dancing shafts of golden sun …
The mystery and wonder of the world … that play the soundless music of the soul
And fill the heart with memory’s olden dreams … From these will come at last your faith in God.
