Driving along Singleton Blvd today in Dallas, through Trinity Terrace I spotted the Texas flag in stiff winds on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. I had to go on across the river to make a u-turn and navigate some traffic to find a place to park and then standing in the middle of the crosswalk, took this picture.

This is a time-lapse that I took of the Dallas skyline last week. The night was cold and the clouds racing in from the south and the little lights on the upper left of the screen are Southwest Airline flights taking off fro Love Field. I plan to take a series of these shots over the next year and put them together in a collage. Too my photo site – http://scottgipson.zenfolio.com/

In2013, we attended the Concourse de Elegance in Pebble Beach, a storied location that the location in itself is a fabulous place to visit. I took well over 1,000 photos for the 3 days were we there and knew that I was missing some of them. Today, I found a folder inside a folder that contained many that I was looking for. This photos is of a 1930’s era Bugatti that was a pure joy to see and photograph.

Once upon a time, I was a young sailor and had always heard about the “Red sky at night…etc” and never really knew where the origin was. So after photographing the morning sky south of Alvarado, I did some research and came upon this explanation. BTW – a major cold front is due this is afternoon, although not as brutal as what our friends up north are now going through but it does explain the fabulous sunrise I witnessed today.
In order to understand why “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning” can predict the weather, we must understand more about weather and the colors in the sky. Read on –

Tuf Cooper is a 4X World Champion Roper and comes from a long line of Rodeo stars, His father, Roy is a 8X World Champion Roper and his brothers are top hands themselves. When his name was announced, you could hear the murmur in the area so I set my camera up behind 3 oder cowboys who were watching fro behind the chutes. When Tuf starts his warm up routine you can see all heads turn his way. He scored 8.0 seconds on this run and the closeted roper to him was 10.0 seconds.It was very obvious why he is the World Champion!
