Bisbee, Arizona celebrated the last day of 2012 with 9 to 10 inches of snow. It began melting off the rooftops fairly soon into the morning, but by evening there was still snow on the ground. However, it wasn’t snowing during the night before the New Year, those are orbs sailing above the hillside.
It is interesting to see how just a few moments can make a difference in the number of orbs in the sky. Especially when you see the third picture in this series:
This is one of those odd “cloud” formations that I have come to associate with the orb photos that Naturesnippets guests on this blog. I never photographed one before this photo. I immediately took another picture:
We are talking seconds apart between the third and fourth picture, and went from thick “cloud” to one pale orb… Several photos later were the same stark black night. I even tried exhaling to see if that had been a factor in the cloudiness, but no, not even a mist.
So, I gave up questing for “clouds” and went back to looking for orbs. I’ve always liked this oak tree, but rarely find as many orbs as it had last night. An interesting start on the eve of a new year.
Happy New Year everyone!
