I got lots of good comments for this photo, and it was featured on the front page of the group in Flickr.

Pumpkin and Squash

Grace Episcopal Church in Alvin, Texas has a "Pumpkin Patch" each year and sells some nice pumpkins and squashes. I got this shot and some others before the public was let in.

Fresh Sunrise

Fresh Sunrise, originally uploaded by Noel C. Hankamer.

My schedule has been off lately, but today a storm passed over our town, waking our 14 1/2 year old Dalmatian who is afraid of thunder. So, I was up at 0430 to calm her. My wife gets up at about that time to get ready for work. I am off on Fridays, so I stayed up and when the storm passed, I decided to see if I could get a dramatic sunrise. A few miles from home while heading to a favorite coastal spot of mine, I saw this view, so this is what I got this morning. Back home by 0730.
