Christmas Crown Sky Cathedral

6 months ago during the summer solstice of 2019, a BIG 100 mile across mesocyclone moved over us right at sunset. Of course “Sneaky Pete” the Windmill jumped into the photo as he is a terrible attention hog. I have no control over his actions. Windmill Wednesday AND Christmas Wednesday. , Windmill Junkies Unite 🤘

Satire:

I do understand through a third party that “Sneaky Pete” the Windmill wishes all of his fans a very very Merry Christmas. He has this insecurity problem where he wants to solve through fame and fortune acquired via his exposure in pictures. So he rushes into my images. His brother “Re-Pete” I’m sure also has Christmas wishes but he couldn’t be present at this photo taking session. He was over the hill out at his hangout during this storm.. Hard to get a family together portrait of the two brothers. They can’t move easily through the timber. I suspect they haven’t seen each other for a long time. I’ll have to see if I can arrange a digital family reunion someday…. 😜

I’m not sure what his New Year resolution. I’m pretty sure it has to involve photobombing more and injecting himself into my landscapes.

My new years resolution is to catch more skies like this and finally get all these images I’ve got stored away up on my web gallery. That will take a “while”. I consider it job security.

From all of us at the Bliss DInosaur Ranch, all of it’s creatures mythical and otherwise , Merry Christmas and a Happy/Safe New Year. 2020 is going to be an interesting year to be alive.

Blurred Windmill with Rainbow Twins and Lightning

So Taking a photo of a Blurred Windmill during the day with amazingly divergent Rainbow Twins behind, and a totally random lightning strike hits just as you hit the shutter… Priceless lolol. I swear this is not a composite and is an unmolested image. Filed under totally random things that happen if you press the shutter button enough. Technically the lightning photobombed “Sneaky Pete” the windmill who is the champion photobombing windmill of all times. I have no control over his actions 😂 . I certainly didn’t have a lightning trigger on this camera (I own and use 2 of them WHEN I work lightning). I was taking a double rainbow lolol. Flash boom.

Sneaky Pete Photobombing the Big Horns

Here “Sneaky Pete” the Windmill is doing what he does best, get into my landscapes. I have no control over his actions…..😎 (years old narrative).🤣
The window to the Big Horn Mountains from my ranch has 130 miles of atmosphere between my high ridge location and those 13,000 foot high peaks… I see them maybe once a week. It was dead calm for this capture or I would have had the windmill blurred by it’s spinning. This 3 second time exposure well after sundown at twilight is a classic view from the Bliss DInosaur Ranches Ridge 1 of the Big Horns from the borderlands…

Red Late Day Rainbow Backing a Windmill

When there is only Red Light Late in the sunset, this resultant Red Rainbow backs up "Sneaky Pete" the windmill. I have no control over his actions. He and his brother "Re Pete" the windmill photobomb my landscapes all the time. I have no control over their actions...😂 Location: Bliss DInosaur Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands.

Windmill Weekend and a Moon Sliver

Windmill Weekend and a Moon Sliver

Good Morning from the Bliss DInosaur Ranch. 

Over an hour past sunset last night….. 

Windmill Weekend and a Moon sliver. “Sneaky Pete” is trying to cut the cheese again….. Spinning blades and all…. That used to be a full moon and it look like “Sneaky” took a bite to me. I have no control over his actions but I’m sorry about changing the tides and the rotation of the earth…. 🤔🤔🤣🤣🤣

Distractions: ……

I’m going to have trouble this week with the launch of the website keeping my 10 image a day posting on going. I’ve got some things to learn that I have to do and a few things still to fix and then there is actually getting images up to the website thing…… It’s all very time consuming. 

I’m going to limit my “output daily here) to 5 image a day for the short term but immediate future…. 

🙁

Onward: ……

Technical Crap for this image: (Photographers notes normally but it’s 9am and I’ve been up since 4 busy Sunday Morning):.. 

The sunset at 7:40PM last night, the moon set at 275 degrees on the compass at 8:51….. This was taken more than an hour after sunset…. It was a tad dark with the 3.2 percent moon being the only source of light in this country. This is into what is known as “Astronomic Twilight (in order twilights…., Astronomic, Nautical, Civil, Sunrise and reverse for sunset). 

5 second time exposure. Any longer and the moon would have smeared….. This is a full sized image and should print wonderfully…..
