Clouds!   Leave a comment

I woke up yesterday morning to a beautiful mother-of-pearl sunrise.  Naturally, I got out with my camera . . .

A lot of places in the US — and even California — this wouldn’t be a Big Event.  In Bakersfield, though, we are used to endless unchanging skies throughout the summer months, and beyond.  I’ve seen afghans in which a strip a day is added, in the color of the sky for that day.  They are beautiful, in many shades of blue, peach, gray, gold, and pink.  Here, you would have pretty much a solid grayish blue blanket.  There’s not much variety in our summer skies, except for a sullen orange night and morning during fire season.  It’s been fire after fire this summer, and it’s not over yet.

Still, perhaps this short-lived change is a sign of times to come.  Eventually.  Well, there are back-to-school ads all over the place.  That’s a sure sign that fall is coming, isn’t it? And fall can be lovely here — and great riding weather!
