Week 48 – layers
When I think of layers, I think of cake and onions (not together!). Normally, having a theme like “layers” on the same week as my birthday would make it easy to get layers. Nope. I didn’t have a traditional cake this year. Mom baked me a cake on Saturday, but that was before this week started (and it was a single layer cake). On my birthday, we had cake pops. So no cake with any layers to photograph … and I wasn’t about to cut an onion just for a photo. Besides, I kind of figured that the sky was the way to go …
Driving around last night, I was wishing I had my camera. The sky was just so pretty, and there were just layers of color. So tonight I brought my camera with me when I took my oldest to gymnastics. I knew the sun would set on my way back, and the view from the ridge by our house would be beautiful. Sadly, the traffic home got me to the ridge a little later than I wanted. But I think I still captured the layers that I saw in the sky.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are in the distance. I was hoping to catch more of them to make them a layer, but I just didn’t have the light (plus new houses have been built and they definitely get in my way when I’m trying to capture the horizon).
Just imagine if we had cirrus clouds in the mix, that would have definitely made for some colorful layers in the sky!!
