Enjoying the end of the day by the river...

I had planned to go to bed early. I was really not wanting to go out. The clouds looked like it was going to rain. I am glad I listened to the voice that said "Go. I want you to see something". So I ended up packing an orange, a fruit-by-the-foot and a Max Lucado book into a bag with my camera and tripod. So the bike, the bag, and the bozo (just to stay with the b's) went downtown to Walnut street bridge.

It was a good time of reading and thinking. I probably look a little crazy down by the water's edge (isn't that a Seven Mary Three song?). I like it there though. Not necessarily the water, but just being in a quiet place without folks walking by and interrupting. In fact, my only companion was a beaver that decided to swim by my sitting place.

It was truly awesome to see the sky unfold it's colors. It would be completely grey one moment and then the next would send rays of violet and pink shooting across the canvas of clouds. Then the grey would come back only to be replaced with oranges and reds.

This last picture almost never happend. I had packed up and was riding back home when I saw this view. I had to flip a couple of U-turns, back track and sit through several stop-light cycles to get back to where I saw it. Just goes to show you that you never know where you will see something amazing. Hope you like it.
