Smokey Sunset222 viewsNow this would have been a beautiful sunset if it wasn't for the circumstances. The phrase "red sky at night, sailors delight" does not apply here.

Glamis Moon221 viewsThe thin Waxing Crescent Moon sets in the evening sky. Glamis is located East of Brawley CA which can be seen along the bottom of the photo. This was an 8 second exposure.

Mai Tai Time221 viewsAfter a long hard day of relaxing on the beach what comes to mind . . . Mai Tai's of course. We enjoyed several here at Keoki's Bamboo Bar.

Na Pali Inside Out221 viewsWe took a wonderful boat ride along the Na Pali Coast. They stopped at several points of interest along the way, the highlight being when they backed into one of the many Sea Caves. Quite a feat considering the fairly rough seas at the time.

Is That You Woody ?221 viewsA rare sight in my neck of the woods, this Woodpecker was enjoying the warm Autumn Afternoon in the White Birch Tree in my front yard. Partly cloudy skies and a high of 70.9 degrees at my Weather Station in Altadena, CA made for a wonderful day.

Hang On Baby219 viewsThis Dragon Fly had an attraction for the antenna on my Father-In-Laws car. Ti was nice of him to hold still for the photo. Taken with an Olympus C-5050Z

'Iole manakuke219 views
The Indian Mongoose was originally brought to Hawaii in 1883. It was believed that the mongooses (no, not mongeese) would help control the rising Rat population on the Islands, but the mongoose is mostly active during the day while the rats were active at night and they didn't have much of an impact on the rats.

Geminids 12-14-06216 viewsAs mentioned in the earlier photo, I had the WebCam set up to capture an image every minute. This is the second Geminid Meteor I captured. This one was in the early morning hours and the radiant had risen high in the sky and the metoer is going almost straight down in the middle of the image.

These images also appear in the WeatherCam Favorites section.

In Alignment214 viewsTaken 5/14/04
A beautiful warm evening here in the Los Angeles area. 95 degrees at my station in Altadena today. I spent the evening in the back yard to watch a visible pass of the International Space Station (ISS) and took some photos of the evening sky. The brightest object is Venus, the "Evening Star". Moving 45 degrees from Venus to the upper left you see Mars and then Saturn. A beautiful alignment of three of the visible planets.
