I had to do some Christmas shopping for the Missus today. The Trusty Nikon got some work.
I made a run to the Rite Aid for Missus ORPO and these were in the sky. We are actually located in the Fremont Valley and not the Antelope Valley.
It is now more like winter in our little corner of the world. While down below, aka The Inland Empire and The LA Basin has had a lot of rain causing road issues and flooding.
The Desert here is a great photo subject in all four seasons.
I left the house earlier than usual as the sun does rise later in the latter half of August. I was lucky enough to catch the sun as it broke above the mountains to the East. I got a few of the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains to the East with the Grey Light Of Dawn hitting them and the hill on California City Boulevard as well.
It is interesting how the mountains to the East, West and South have a bluish tint in the early morning. The Air Force Rocket Lab is a bit ethereal at this time of day…………….
This Desert, where I live and work is an amazingly beautiful place.
In the mix is a BNSF Train going East to Barstow with three GE’s on the head end and two GE’s on the rear as pushers………………..22,000 Horsepower!
