Evening over Osoyoos

When we were in Osoyoos in August, we stayed at the Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort.  It is a great place to stay and its location above the lake and across from the city gave us a beautiful view of both as well as the hills to the west.

On our last evening, I watched the sunset from one of the rooftop patios and enjoyed the light and its changes on the land and in the sky.  As the sun sped away, there were interesting scenes that kept my interest sharp through into night.

Summer in Osoyoos

We are enjoying some family time at the Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort in Osoyoos, British Columbia. The trail down to the water is through the Nk’Mip Winery and their vineyards. When we went down last night for a swim in the lake, it was great to watch the kids running down the pathway.


Hide and seek with a blue moon

Last night as the setting sun was painting the broken clouds above Lake Okanagan, the waxing moon was using them to hide as it rose.  The colours in the evening sky were beautiful pastels and the bright lunar surface stood in sharp contrast.

This blue moon will be full on August 31st so these images are of the moon in its gibbous waxing phase.

 

I’ll be watching again tonight to see if our earth’s satellite has any more tricks planned.
