Skywatch Friday: Last Light

I took all my summer photos with my phone this year.  It was new to me and always in my pocket, so it was as challenging as it was easy in those regards.  Sometimes it seemed the light would smear--but in a good way.  Ironically, this is pretty much how things looked for me without my glasses.

I love a Carolina sunset
That's one thing a man will never forget
It brings heaven a little bit closer to Earth
Makes you feel like what you got

Lord, ain't it been worth everything we been through together


Taking the good
Taking the bad
Taking whatever
Under a Carolina sunset

  8. "Light smeared in a great way" is what I thought, Sandy.

  10. You're doing a much better job with your phone than I. I have to have my real camera with me if I want good results. Nice work.
