Cloud Instagram

“Cloud” Cedar Park, 2020


I decided to shift my Instagram account subject matter to just pictures of the clouds (and sky), since I am pretty convinced that they are my favorite things to take pictures of. My Instagram has been a mix of clouds, travel, and food, but I think I’ll just focus on the one subject. I’ll keep all my old photos, including my earliest where Instagram meant spontaneous snapshots, just for history’s sake.

Anyways, we’ll see how it goes! I’m not very active there, with the main effort being this blog, and then my daily photo post on Flickr. But Instagram is still fun to browse and see what friends and family are up to!

Adding Strava Stats to Photos

“Evening Stats” Cedar Park, 2020

I was browsing a bicycling subreddit and came across some photos that included the Strava statistics. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to create one, so I reached out to one of the posters of the thread and he told me that I had to Share an activity in Strava, and then can choose the photo or map. Worked like a charm! I don’t know how often I will use it, but I think it’s pretty neat.

Here’s another cloud photo that I took on my run. I really like clouds, btw. 😜

Storm and Sun

“Leaving the Storm” Texas, 2020

Drove through some heavy rain on the way home today. But when we broke into the sunlight, it was awesome!

Glowing Sky

“Sunset Panorama” Cedar Park, 2020

This evening, we were relaxing as usual when Bay said that the sky was really orange. I took a peek out the window and decided that I needed to get a photo, so I grabbed my camera, hopped on my bike, and sped over to the wide-open space that offers a good view of the sunset.

To my surprise, there were about 10 people there, all watching the sunset. One lady even had her camp chair set up so she could watch in comfort. Since I had never seen people stop to actually watch the sunset at that location, I wondered if there was some other special event that was about to happen, such as a space station flyover. I think it was just a beautiful sunset that drew everyone out of their homes, though, but of course that’s plenty of reason! And Bay was right, the sky was glowing orange! 😊

Another Fine Sunset

As seen on this evening’s bicycle ride:
