Today at Kingsford

Moonrise over Kingsford

Blackburnian came up from fishing this evening, and prodded me to get up from the couch, where I was dozily watching tv with the puppy, to look out the window at the lake. The moon was nearly full again, and was reflecting off the water in a glittering ribbon. After a few days of clouds, and some stormy, windy weather last night, the calm and brightness of tonight’s full moon was beautiful. The temperature has dropped with the passing of the storm, as well, from a sweltering humid evening trying to wear as few items of clothing as possible yesterday, to contemplating putting the fire on for the first time this fall this evening. I bundled myself up in my winter jacket, put my camera on my tripod, and trundled down to the dock to take a few photos on what little juice remained in my camera’s rechargable battery. I don’t go down to the dock after dark nearly as often as I’d like to, mostly because the trail down is so dark, and is steep and littered with stones, not a good combination. If we were to buy this place, one of the things I would like to do is put in stairs down to the water, so I could enjoy the moonrises and starry skies.

  1. These are gorgeous photos! Sorry I wasn’t able to tell you earlier. I like how they’re almost, but not quite, BnW; it makes the blacks even richer.
    When we lived in a place that was basically a drop over the edge to get to the dock, my dad built a wooden staircase and used skinny cedar trunks as the railing. It did the job.
