That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Summer Solstice Sunset
« on: June 23, 2017, 08:26:26 PM »

I dropped my oldest at a sleep away camp in Irvine. I realized as I was looking at directions to the camp that I was going to be pretty close to the gorge. I dropped her off at 7 and headed to the gorge to catch the sunset. I grabbed Subway and headed to the end of TRR, left the car about 7:45 and hurried towards Double Arch. The whole time I was hiking, I was swatting horseflies and thinking that I was going to miss the sunset. Luckily, I got to the end of the road with about 10 minutes to spare. It would have been nice at the top of Double Arch, but the view from the end of the road is pretty nice.





There are a couple more photos and a couple panoramas here https://backpackandbeer.blogspot.com/2017/06/summer-solstice-sunset.html

I meant to add a couple other photos, so you did not need to visit the blog unless you really wanted to.

All very nice!
It always amazes me in those last seconds during sunset, how quickly the light changes everything. I just keep shooting.
Same thing during sunrise.
The most emotional images come during those few minutes of the day.

You must live in my neck of the woods... (Irvine? My place is near College Hill)

Most of my photos of the Gorge reside here, in the Red River Gorge gallery:

I agree about those last seconds. I grew up in SW Florida and took a couple photo classes with B&W film. I had a beach location that I liked for sunset/sunrise photos. It was amazing how the light and the reflections on the water would change over about 10 minutes before and after sunrise/sunset.

I live in Lexington, the camp just happened to be in Irvine.

Glad you all liked the photos
