Collected Random Photos

Just wanted to share some random images. This first one is some of local flowering trees from a month ago. The season passes quickly and you won’t find such blossoms now.

Horses are a big thing around these parts. This pasture is sometimes vacant, but on this occasion there were horses on both sides of the divider fence and close enough to capture all at once.

This is the conduit I rode down one day. It’s typically near dry most of the year, maybe a trickle in the very bottom growing moss. However, we had an unusual rain pattern hanging around for two weeks this month. Once the ground gets soaked, the run-off is much greater and this was near the end. Earlier that day it was a half-meter deeper as indicated by the flotsam on my side, and the grass flattened on the other side.

Central Oklahoma got only about 80% of the solar eclipse. During a half-hour period the sun was faintly dimmed and nowhere near as hot as usual. What was really noticeable was the odd shading of the shadows from naked tree limbs about three of four meters overhead. The effect is not so pronounced with objects closer to the ground, but these tree limb shadows are normally sharply defined.

  1. Up here near Ottawa we didn’t get much of the eclipse but the light was weird and yes, the tree shadows looked different.

    Nice pics!
