Sunrise, Sunset



This boathouse is on our creek. I took this right after Tropical Storm Hanna left town, right as the sun was starting to set. I hope these folks don't mind having their property displayed all over the internet.



This is Smithers Cemetery at sunset. Even though my camera says the picture was taken at 6:30 a.m., it was actually p.m. That's because I don't know how to change the time on my camera. Or do anything with it other than push one button to take a picture. There are approximately 47 other buttons on it that are never used. While we're on the topic, where topic equals Chesapeake Bay Woman's Fear of Gadgets, Widgets, Fruit Fly Infestations and Technology, the time on my computer is off by exactly one hour. I have no idea what happened or how to fix it.

What I love about living on this creek is we see the most spectacular sunrises since we face east, but the sunsets directly behind us produce equally magnificent views, and the lighting is incredible.

Happy Saturday, everyone.

I'm sure they couldn't mind being part of your fabulous picture. And the cemetery shot is amazing.

I understand about all the buttons on your camera. Every time I take the camera out of the bag, I first have to re-read the instruction manual.

I cannot wait to visit that beautiful place! Oh, and I have no idea how to operate all the things on my camera either, or anything electronic for that matter. I also have an aversion to instruction manuals, so that makes it all the more challenging.

hey cbw,
I'm back after a month. I got my computer back. I'm in the process of setting everything back up again. My motherboard and modem were replaced. It only costs me $32 for shipping. E-machines rocks, Yeah. Change your time by going in the control panel under the start menu. Make sure you are on eastern standard time. That should fix your problem.
Your pictures are gorgeous and I have to catch up on the last months worth of your stories. This will take a long tome.
Happy Saturday and it is good to be back. I missed you.

I just adore your pictures and so look forward to reading about your world. Thank you for entertaining me.

For someone who is continually pointing out their inadequacies you certainly have an eye for a great shot. Your have a seemingly endless supply of great photos!

Those photos are gorgeous! You take great pictures. I wish I could aim and shoot like that.
I'm still in the airport in Anchorage...TSA is stalking me....I finally dragged my luggage into the bathroom and changed clothes. Now they REALLY think I'm up to no good...of course sitting on the floor in the terminal, with my laptop plugged into the same outlet as the ATM machine is highly suspicious. I mean shoot, I've been here for over 18 hours. Too bad they don't have nice comfy overstuffed chairs like Houston.

So pretty! I love this picture. I don't have a date on my camera, but if I did, I wouldn't be able to change it either.

I still can't get over that you call that a creek. It seems to be wider than our Sacramento River, which is a major source of recreation, water, and fish here in Northern California. What do rivers look like in Virginia?

I'm wandering through the early years od your blog, looking for familiar sights. And here we are. Smithers Cemetary. Quite a few of my ancesters are there. I always thought you couldn't find a more beautiful place to spend eternity.
