I love when clouds get a pink tint to them during sunsets. I really love taking pictures during sunset and sunrises. The problem I face is that I don't have places to go to capture them. Well, what I mean are places that give a nice clear view of the sky or skyline. It is one of the many things I miss about living in the North East. I could climb a mountain and get a beautiful view of the sunset from so many places. It is so flat down here in South Carolina that I have difficult finding open skies.
The red lionfish (Pterois volitans) is a venomous coral reef fish. I could post the wikipedia text, but that would be a little silly for me to do. I always find it so intriguing that the most beautiful fish in the ocean are also the most deadly. I guess it is strange how that works. I took this at a local aquarium. I would love to get back there, since I have a year pass, but this time of year may be a little crowded.
Here is a picture I captured at Vereen Memorial Historical Gardens in Little River yesterday. You can see the rain that was coming in that caused me to leave. It is really a wonderful picture, and I think it may be one of my favorites from the last few weeks.
