R is for Ralph and Snapshot Saturday~April 20

In the Blogging A to Z Challenge there are letters that are easy to write about. On Snapshot Saturday hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books it’s easy sometimes to come up with the photos I want to use.  I’m combining the two today and I will be brief.

For those of you that were reading BCDC last year, R for Ralph might seem like a rerun.  Well, I suppose it is.  But, Ralph is first in line in all things for me.

That’s why he IS the snapshot today.  The photo is one of my favorites.  Ralph standing on the deck of our home in New Mexico, with the sunset behind him.  Possibly one of the best photos I’ve ever taken.


We’ll get there soon.

Happy Snapshot Saturday, “R”!

  2. Very striking photo, and nice to see you so devoted to the Alphabet Challenge, and to Ralph. Here’s Mine

  3. He looks so great, almost in shadow, against that gorgeous sky. It could be a book cover! Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

    I’m new to your blog so don’t know the history with Ralph but it sounds like he is a special person. This is a great photo with the beautiful sky behind him.

  5. Very nice pic of Ralph, sunset, and your beautiful home. Can’t wait till you get out there so Bill and I can come visit and sit on that nice deck to watch the sunsets with you all. Ahhhh….old age….ain’t it grand! LOL

  6. That sky is gorgeous! And I love the way he’s silhouetted in front of it. Well done!

    Hi from Nagzilla bloghopping A to Z

  7. That is an amazing photo with the sunlight and silhouette!

  8. That’s a lovely photo – the sky and the light are really good, and I like the way Ralph stands out against them. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/DrAfs

  9. Wonderful photo! It does capture something intangible.

  10. The lighting in that photo is amazing — it becomes more impressive as you look at it! I can easily understand why this is one of your favorite pictures. Here is my SATURDAY SNAPSHOT post.

  11. I like R too. He looks very “R”egal up there with the clouds.

  12. What a beautiful photo! I love the colors of the sky and the mountains in the background.

    That deck looks like a great place to spend some time, just looking at the view or reading a good book!

    • Thanks, Vicki! Funny thing is that I go out there with a book to read, but the view is so distracting, I have a hard time. I suppose once we’re there full time, it might wear off…but I don’t think so!

  13. That is a gorgeous photo. No wonder you want to live there!
    Good luck in the final stretch of the A to Z!

    • Thanks, Christine! Glad you like it and yes, the view is what convinced my husband we needed to live there. Can’t wait till it actually happens. Good luck to you on the final stretch of the A to Z. We’re all in this together which is the good part! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Gorgeous sunset! He looks happy there.

  15. That’s a neat photo! Thanks for sharing it!

  16. Go Ralph. Getting his own letter, and that sunset is amazing. It’s a great photo Fran, and I bet you can’t wait to get there.

    • Thanks, Meghan…you’re right…I can’t wait to get there. We get incredible sunsets almost every night out there. I’ll be really boring with the sunrises and sunsets once we get out there! Ralph deserves his own letter.

  17. That sunset just lights up the silhouette. Very nice.

  18. Lovely picture! You’re lucky to have each other 🙂
