I could write a post about how I camped at three different places on Kerr Lake in Virginia this month. I could write about the campgrounds and the facilities and how I kayaked right from my site. But honestly, when I reviewed the photos I took, it was all about the sky, sunrise, sunset, and moonrise. So this is a post of few words and many photos…
For about a week, this was my morning view when I opened up the window shade. Really can’t beat it and it made me smile every morning, whether it was a bit foggy or overcast or the promise of a cloudless, sunny day.
I joined a fellow Alto owner for a campfire my first night at North Bend and we enjoyed both a quiet orange sunset and a mellow moonrise from the same vantage point. Yet another reason I love North Bend.
Just an afternoon walk, taking shots from the roadway between two campground loops. The sky put on such a show, I found myself walking slower and slower just to see what the clouds would do next.
The next week, I stayed at Longwood Park, on the other side of Kerr Lake, where the site had a little beach perfectly suited for sunset viewing. This one lasted for all of five minutes, so I hustled from campsite down to beach just in time to catch the colors before they faded into darks and blacks.
Another spot in the campground had a different view, one that almost looked like a scene from a sci-fi movie, with the post-sunset clouds reflecting onto the water just that way.
Ah, Kerr Lake, you’re one place I absolutely hate to leave when my time is up. I’ll be back, though, that water is too hard to resist.
Watch the sunrise. Watch the sunset. How does that make you feel? Does it make you feel big or tiny? Because there’s something good about feeling both.
