Post No. 127 Nyack Orange

Nyack, NY It's been steamy, hot and humid in the greater NYC area for the last two weeks. Fantastically dramatic thunderstorms, full of brilliant lightning, booming thunder, torrential downpours have become quite frequent in this time, as well. Yesterday was no exception. At about 4pm, the skies darkened and the thunder drums began to pound in the distance. I looked out of my window across the Hudson and observed ominous clouds converging from the north and south, onto Westchester and Tarrytown, NY. The strong gusts of wind violently whipped tree branches and created waves and whitecaps on the river, rocking the sailboats in the local marina. I actually saw a funnel cloud form and quickly dissipate... Then a wall of rain crawled slowly toward my side of the river. The storm lasted for about an hour, then the sun began to peek through the clouds. The sky never completely cleared, but the colors created by the evening sunlight bouncing off the clouds was striking. I went for a stroll with my camera, looking for a rainbow, which I found, but unfortunately, the light wasn't sufficient to get a good snap. But, as they say in photography, as you look at your subject from one direction, turn around and look at the lighting sky from a different point of view (pov), you might be surprised at what you see... The image in the photograph above is what I saw when I turned around... Any thoughts? ~peace & love seanjonesfoto

Post No. 126 Yummm

I made this delicious salad yesterday for lunch. Mesclun greens with tomato, fresh basil, tuna, blueberries, and mango, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette... I love to make these salads! They please four of the five senses: visually stimulating colors and textures; sweet scent; wonderfully varying and distinct tastes; and lovely textures on the tongue... You'll have to make one for yourself and let me know how it turns out. ;)
