The Evening Before July 4th 2009


Great Light

Great Light

The sun popped out between the clouds and horizon about 5 minutes before it set for the night.  I was driving down La Canada from McGee.  As I started down the hill to the “Bridge” the sun came out from behind the clouds and cast amazing light on the Catalina’s.  I knew instantly where I wanted to go.  I also knew this light would last about 5 minutes total.

I pulled into the parking lot at the library and parked quickly grabbing tripod and camera bag.  Funny thing, my wife Barbara was there with her camera, while we were coming from the same place we had arrived from different parts of town.  Neither of us knew we would be stopping on the way home.

But when that sun popped, we both knew where to head.

Hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July.
