Property clouds

Not sure what's with me lately, I'm a little obsessed with the sky & can't stop sharing it. Maybe I'm just appreciating the little things in my life. I took this one about 8:30ish this morning from the back porch, I like how there's dark streaks of clouds mixed in, there's a storm a' brewin & it's super cold outside. Only expecting to get 70 degrees in Redding & we're about 8 degrees cooler, so burrrrrrr!!!! I'm not much for the cold but I'm excited for Fall to come, it seems like summer dragged on forever. Another reason for the excitement, we planted some tulip bulbs in the front yard (I still have more to go), just need cool weather for finishing.
It's funny, I traditionally take photos of the back yard in the Fall/Winter months for the cloud views & the front yard for all the Spring/Summer flowers that we're rewarded with (some natural, some planted). For everything happening in my life, I'm just so thankful, even if it's something little & I don't want to ever take anything for granted.

How I took it

I brought the tripod but the sky didn't bring the best clouds, I'm still happy for what I got last night though. My settings were f/16, shutter speed was 1/8 second, ISO 100. We're very lucky to have this view & the next time I'm going to take the photo from the back deck, maybe we'll get a few city lights in there as well. Have a great day everybody!

I just hope I'm as lucky with the gift of clouds.

Property sunsets

The news said there's a storm moving in tonight & it might rain. I just love the cloud formation & the sunsets always look better with clouds. If I had only been a few minutes earlier, it was even prettier.
Have a great day!

Sisters & Family Christmas Cards - Redding CA

How cute is this?!

We went out for some Christmas card photos & the morning was absolutely beautiful, I couldn't resist my generic shot! I was super happy when I got home & seen how special this moment was.
These girls get cuter each time I see them & I love watching them grow.

Have you taken your Family Christmas card photos?
