Red Sky at Morning

All photos taken July 29, 2021.

I recall when I would thrill at the beautiful red sunrises and sunsets. Now the red tinge is augmented by smoke, not a thrill any longer. Climate change is undeniable. Here on earth, we are very fry-able.

Stay well, stay safe and pray for rain.

How is everything in your part of the world?

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Lovely captures, Allan. Climate change is definitely real. It’s supposed to go up to a high of 24C on Monday, which is great, but also crazy. We’ve had such severe weather this year: long stretches of no rain, forest fires, and then flooding.

  2. Climate change is real and it is also permanent. +17’C today in Sligo, which is very warm for this time of the year. As the world warms, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, sea levels are rising, prolonged droughts are putting pressure on food crops, and many animal and plant species are being driven to extinction. It’s hard to imagine what we as individuals can do to resolve a problem of this scale and severity.

  3. When I was on the Okanagan in the summer, those smoke-hued sunrises and sunsets looked so angry, like an infection. In NWT, the sunsets and sunrises are naturally very red and orange because of the sun’s angle, but they look normal, not like a representation of Dante’s Inferno.

  4. Hi Guys. I feel we have had an usually long fall. The colors are just starting. 2 weeks late from last year. Had our first frost last night. All is well with us. We went on a leaf hunt this afternoon. NB is on what they call a circuit breaker. No home visits for the long weekend. Some hot spots no visiting for 2 weeks. BUT…… you can meet at the pub if fully vaccinated 🥴🙈🙈. So the world keeps spinning with no answers. Lots of Love from US❣❣

    1. Fall has been quite long this year for sure, especially on the West Coast. Back to home tomorrow and reality. Sorry to hear of new restrictions, but good for NB for putting them in. Hope to visit with you soon. Love A & P

      2. Thanks Angela. Just home from a 4825 km 23 day drive. Looking forward to sitting still for a few days and composing posts from all the photos I took. It will be an adventure. Happy Thanksgiving to you, as well. Allan
