Fabulous Skies

We are fortunate to have a great view from my back yard!​

I was swimming and looked at the sky and ended up only swimming 3 lengths as the sky was changing fast!

Looks like a gateway to the heavens. At first I thought from your description that you had composed this picture while lying on your back floating in the pool.

Thanks everone!

Every so often we learn to really appreciate our slice of life. I was simply amazed at the beauty as I was swimming on my back. Couldn’t get out of the water fast enough!

Cirrus.
High altitude ice crystals.
Fine weather.

Do you swim naked, Ash? Now that’s freedom.
Yes, Tom!

But Wendy said that if I continue going commando, we have to increase our upstairs-lodger’s rent as she showers me with rose petals from her bedroom balcony!

Then I had a moment without my Fuji camera but there was a crescent moon above with silhouettes of trees on the rainbow-colored sky.

I also have pictures from a day or two later with my MF camera to process!

Each night we try to eat outside to a new amazing sky. Someone was trying to convert me so I could be saved and go to heaven.

I reassured her that I appreciated her good intentions and love, but for me it was so especially unneeded!

I am in heaven already!

I can’t feel that I could deserve anything better in my life, now or in the future!

In this time of others suffering and losing loved ones, to be so privileged to know one’s family are well and safe AND see the beauty of nature, can’t be upped by anything other than cures for illness and peace on earth!

Asher Kelman: “Evening Prayers”
Part of the great sky are the context of the trees reaching up!

Hope you agree!

Just as I turned into the alley behind my house, a girl passed on her bicycle!

Asher Kelman: “Masked at Sunset”


What’s interestingvto me is how the cables above, the alley and the silhouetted buildings all help to set the cyclist as a person of interest!

Tonight the clouds gathered in a strange way both comforting and menacing.

Asher Kelman: “Tear Gas Sunset“

I guess it depends which side of the oncoming tear gas one is at!

There was actually no tear gas, here in Los Angeles, just at the Nation’s Capital, but it was on our mind. Who would gave thought that the US White House would send militarized Police to fire rubber bullets and tear gas at peaceful unarmed young Americans exercising their rights to peaceful protest!

This was heavy on our minds all during the falling evening light!

Once again our sky caught on fire after a 105 F hot day, never heard of in Beverley Hills!

Asher Kelman: Oven!

Starting to take global warming seriously. Apparently a trans global weather arch of atmospheric energy linked our heat wave with the current Typhoon Haishan hitting Japan, Koreas........ and Snow in the Mid West of the USA!

Today it was only 100 degrees F!

Asher Kelman: “Respite”

Likely we have a trapped layer of smoke from the Northern California fires!

I think about how shocked the dinosaurs were when the sky caught on fire!

Obvious dark smoke from the massive million-acre Californian fires has disappeared, but the sunsets still fire up the sky from residual fine particles!

The same alley shown in post #13 above.
