Forest City, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I got two calls from friends this morning that the sky was on fire. I grabbed the point and shoot, and headed up the hill flip flops flopping for a better view. I would have missed it.

That's a true friend Gary, what a gorgeous sunrise!

(too bad one of them wasn't around to get a photo of the man dashing out the door in flip-flops, in the near darkness...) :)

Lovely, and made even more special by having considerate friends!! Congrats to all of you! :)

I've been known to dash out in the snow in my slippers for a (very) quick shot. It's worth it every time. :)

Once my son who drives semi was on the phone with me from southern US. I live in WI.  He said 'wow what a sunset!" and I said a quick good bye and drove for a hill top. And way up here i WI it was also a beautiful sunset.

About Railheel

Railheel

My name is Gary and I'm a retired railroader. I have always enjoyed photography and now that I have the time I take lots of photos. My late wife of 40 years and I traveled from our home in Western North Carolina to her home in Ridgecrest Calif. one or more times a year. Our love is going to National Parks as we traveled this great land of ours. We have been blessed by seeing over 30 Parks showing Gods Wonders. WeatherUnderground allows me to visit across this country and around the world from my recliner.
