Just in one Day – Photos from Nov. 18, 2021 – taken at the Rogge-Mountain-Ranch

Just in one Day …, Tule Fog fills the San Joaquin Valley, as is typical for the season, but once in a while mountain ridges turn into islands in the sky amidst the fog ocean.

Island in the Sky

Just in one Day …, the setting Sun casts magic colors over the Valley.

Sunset’s Magic Colors

Just in one Day…, we could observe the longest Lunar Eclipse in 580 years. Not that the duration of the Eclipse did matter to me. Rather, those clouds were playing around, leaving once in a while an open gap to observe the Lunar Eclipse.

Sunsets from the Rogge Mountain Ranch

The heat is on, global warming cuts its teeth in our fabric. So, I am starting to dream of the sunsets we had early in the year when clouds filled the sky, temperatures where just right, and the sunsets where beyond imagination.

The first sunset photo for my feel shows the best colors you can hope for in a sunset.

Looking down from the Rogge Mountain Ranch into the San Joaquin Valley, the lights of Merced show, below the clouds, below the sunset.

The Valley below, just after the sun was setting.

And yet, there are more colors possible during a sunset. I wonder sometimes, what our forefathers thought when seeing the light just before the sun was setting…
