Sunday Stills – Celestial – 06.06 .21

The feature image is a sunset in Jacksonville, Florida a few years ago. I really thought the heavens were going to open up.

This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is Celestial.

Big beautiful Cumulus clouds were moving, shaping and forming quickly in the blue sky in Georgia off of Interstate I-95 with tall pine trees in the foreground.

Yesterday, which was Sunday, 6/6, D-Day for any WWII enthusiasts, Frank and I took a day trip to St. Simons Island, Georgia. I had been stuck in the house for over a week. I’m limited to what I can do because of my foot problem. I did find out the problem and I have a torn tendon in my right foot. I see a surgeon this coming Friday. No hiking…limited walking and not much exercise except low impact that doesn’t put pressure on my foot. AWESOME!

Anyway, this photo was taken from the car, moving at about 75 mph on Interstate 95 through the tinted window of Frank’s Prius with my IPhone. Not bad, but the clouds were amazing!


Sunrays blast from the clouds just above the sandy beach giving off a beautiful reflection in the water at Little Talbot Island State Park.

Taken last summer at Little Talbot Island State Park. I had to walk out into the surf to get this shot as the tide was coming in. It would have been bad if I had gotten knocked off my feet with my phone in my hand. Yep, taken with my IPhone.

This is for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #81.

This is one of my favorite moon shots so I thought I would share it again as it goes with the theme this week.

I will conclude with one of the most celestial symbols we have on Earth and that is our beautiful angels.

    • Thanks Cee! I could do all this and live with the pain but I’m scared of tearing it all the way so just taking it easy as much as I can. 🙂

  1. Noooo, a torn tendon, Lisa?? I’m so sorry to hear! You’ve had your woes the last few weeks! At least you’ve managed to continue blogging and share some fabulous photos of our moon and sun. Love the angels, and you reminded me to get a really special one for my Christmas tree this year…our first Christmas in our new home and one we will be at home for in forever! 2021 may be a celestial Christmas!

    • Yeah, I’ve had a time, but staying positive. I just want to go out and bird and spend time at the beach. I just don’t want to injure and snap what is left in there. That would be bad. At least it is only 3 more days and I see the surgeon. Yay for that! The angel that is in black & white is 29 years old. Her lights burned out last Christmas. I want to rewire her but not sure if I can. Maybe I can get my son to do it. He is an electrical genius. I don’t want to replace her. She is special and sits upon the tree that is that same age. 🙂

    • Thanks Virginia. I’ve had some pain and dealt with it since January. Honestly, I’m more concerned of tearing it the rest of the way before I can have surgery. 🙂

      • Me too! I’ve missed it. Most of the birds are scattered for the summer so I have nothing to look at out the window. LOL! I told Frank that we need to go to the beach and he can wheel me out there on the handicap beach wheelchair. hehehe

      • That would work for me! 😀

        The migrants have largely left here as well. I’m not even hearing or seeing many Red-wing or Yellow-headed blackbirds. Just the usual suspects stay…House Sparrows, swallows, and Gold and House Finches, along with the mallards.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your foot Lisa – I hope the visit to the surgeon on Friday goes well and comes up with a helpful solution. Meanwhile you have some wonderful celestial images here – I especially like the opener (who wouldn’t?!) and the Little Talbot one. I’ve done similar wading in the past and like you been a little nervous about dropping my phone or camera!

    • Thanks Sarah. I hope it goes well too. I can live with the pain, but I’m afraid of tearing it wholly. Then I will be in real trouble. 🙂 It’s funny, I don’t get too nervous about dropping it unless the unsuspecting waves are coming up behind me. LOL! 🙂

    • Thank you Cathy. I have a pretty long recovery. 6-12 weeks but will no more after the surgery once they get in there to see exactly what they are dealing with. 🙂
