The sunset I almost missed completely

I was so busy watching the eclipse in progress on the internet (it was too cloudy here). I happened to look up and there was the most beautiful sunset going on and I nearly missed the whole thing because I had my head in the computer. Doh!

I hurried even as it was fading, to try to get outside to capture some of the beauty. When I am out of breath, my pictures don't turn out at all well. This one is almost decent, but not a quarter of how beautiful it was when I noticed.

It just goes to show a person what can happen when one has their nose facing the monitor, instead of what is surrounding us. I watched the eclipse for a couple of hours and used about a week's worth of my GB "allowance", snapping print screen and then not being able to find them on the comp. Bleep!

Fading fast...

  4. It is a challenge, when you are interested in something online, to not miss things out and about. I am just amazed at some people that NEVER seem to notice the world around them... Nose stuck firmly to phone thing. I won't say I haven't blundered by something good because I am generally oblivious, but usually I am not attached to some electronics. (Please don't ask my husband about my MP3 player, tho, there could be a debate, there... eep...) ;)
