Sunset Over Nickajack Lake

Ann and I spent two nights on the shores of Nickajack Lake near Chattanooga, our annual anniversary weekend excursion.
I swore I was going to stay off line for a few days. I did manage to not open e-mail for the duration, but I couldn’t resist posting this iPhone photo of the sunset as I went out on the dock to grill some bratwursts.
Sunday was the night of the Blood Moon. We didn’t think we were going to see it, because the sky was totally overcast as the moon rose. I fell asleep reading in bed, and when I woke up at around 10PM I thought to stick my head outside and, sure enough, a hole had opened in the clouds and we saw a few minutes of the red moon, and then the waxing eclipse.
Sometimes it’s better to just watch a thing than try to photograph it…
