Another beautiful North Texas Winter Sunset, we had in front of our house:
On Sunday evening, while I was waiting for the Moon to get behind the Earth’s shadow, I took another shot of the constellation Orion. Waiting for the big event of a Lunar Eclipse can be very boring . Meanwhile I always try to make the time feel shorter by capturing photos of the night sky. Orion was the perfect object in the January Winter sky.
Hiking at Lewisville Lake, the wind was relentless today. The lake is at is full-pool capacity. And I saw lots of Ring-billed Gulls fishing in the distance. Since it was too windy for photos, I just walked for bit, which felt good. I need to get back in shape anyway. The Christmas package needs to be trained off. And the best way to do so for me is walking and hiking in nature. As I mentioned before, I didn’t get any good photos from the walk today. So, I post a couple of pictures from a Great Blue Heron, I’ve photographed at the Shoreline Trail back in 2013.
In Carrollton is a little park I love to go for a little walk, after Kevin and I have lunch with him about a block away. There are lots of pecan trees, a pond, lots of squirrels, turtles birds, and a natural bee hive in an old tree trunk. It’s the perfect place to “walk the lunch off”. If you wondered, this is the park where I got the idea from for my blog title. 🙂
