Red Rubber Ball

Another sunset from the cold northland at lattitude 60.
It has been 0 to -20 here so far this year, prime for some of the meterorlogical events I love,
and I have been out enjoying the show.
Here’s one from tonight (or today really at 4pm).

IMGP0764 a Red Rubber Ball

Cook Inlet, and a reflection in the open water betwixted the ice,

can you believe the Beluga Whales are out there somewhere? Well they are.

500mm lens, on a monopod.

I was thinking of this song Red Rubber Ball whilst taking this shot,

a Pop Hit many moons ago (and sunsets too).

It’s a song about getting over, and don’t we all have memories of getting over?

Well I sure do, how about you?

Here is the song by the original artists, surprising? Yeah surprised me too

And the version I knew many years ago!

And yes I know it doesn’t quite match the sunset gig, but hey!, get over it LOL

    That is going back a bit; I remember learning that song in primary school! The lyrics – apart from "red rubber ball"! – (and melody) do sound very Simon and Garfunkel.Easy to stay warm here – getting too hot is the problem.

    I wanted to visit someone who is colder than we are! I always loved that song… my era too.
