Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Horizon — that special place in space where the earth meets the sky in the distance.  The horizon image above was taken just south of Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California shortly after sunset.  See more horizons at the WordPress Photo Challenge page.

Central Park Sunday

Yesterday Kongo took advantage of an absolutely glorious October Sunday to spend a few hours in New York’s Central Park.  The weather was warm but every once in a while a cool, chilling breeze chased along the paths, reminding everyone of colder days ahead.  Maple trees were particularly spectacular.  Sycamores had already lost most of their leaves.  A huge Breast Cancer Walk added plenty of activities and noise with a band, banging drums, and splashes of pink everywhere.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

This week the WordPress Photo Challenge is The Hue of You, designed to focus those who accept the challenge to focus on different hues of light.  Kongo took this image last weekend from the balcony of a rented beach house in Carlsbad, California where this group on the beach took in the sunset hues of orange and purple.

Rare Least Terns

This clutch of rare California Least Terns hang out on a beach in Carlsbad, California.  Normally these birds are well on their way to South America by the end of August but it IS a pretty beach and Kongo understands why they might want to linger.  These birds are on the federal endangered species list.
