The sky looked promising from the hole I live in. The clouds were striking and there was plenty of color in the sky. So hoping to get a nice sunset photo I went down to the Morley bridge. Strange how a mile and a few minutes changes things and by the time I got on the bridge the color had faded.
Still it wasn’t a wasted trip since I did get a decent photo of the river. I next tried to get a different perspective on the old Morley mill by walking out on the river ice. That plan too was thwarted. The recent warm weather had foiled my plans. So all I was left with was a shot of the ice and snow from the river’s edge. It looks like I’ll have to wait for summer and wade the river before I can get a photo of the mill from the spot I was thinkinf of.
At least I got a pic of part of the mill. These old gears were removed long ago and left to rust.
Having got my photo fix of the day I went home to upload the photos on my computer. In the process I checked the weather and learned that the full moon was about to rise. Back out I went and just in time. I managed to get a couple of shots before the moon was hidden by the clouds.
In case you’re wondering – this is the photo I’ve set as my desktop background.

December 3, 2008, Sunset photos fresh from the camera.
Zooming in the silos are more apparent.
I can’t be absolutely sure but I bet those are Turkeys in the tree. If you think they don’t hang out in trees you’d be wrong. Turkeys will roost in trees.
I wanted a better shot of the silos so drove down the road. Glad I did since I got goosed.
These are photos using the Normal Scenery – Landscape mode of my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28. They are the first shots I took at sunset and am happy with the results. I don’t know how well they’ll print out but for on-line use they’re better than good.
