Last night I headed out on my own as my lovely boat Captain and Compositional Consultant was out of town for a few days. So without a driver I found a nice strategic spot along Indian Slough, backed the pontoon boat into the tules, tossed out a bow anchor and sat back listening to some tunes with a Cubata in hand waiting for something interesting to come by, and I was not disappointed. A parade of boats and wave runners went whizzing by as the light evolved. A guy on a wave runner named Steve hammed it up for the camera and a Great Egret landed in the tules nearby hoping to catch and evening meal. Then as the light breeze settled down some nice reflections started to emerge and the so so sunset lit up the south eastern skies with pastels of pink and blue. Later that night, sometime after midnight I let the camera run for 80 minutes to catch some Star Trails.  Got to love living on the water!

Post Script: The beautiful clear night sky of the other day was replaced last night with an unusual summertime storm, bringing us thunder, lightning and a needed rain shower     http://www.DeltaWanderings.com
