July 30 photo of the day

The end of July and early August is Lughnasadh - Gaelic harvest festival and celebrated in ancient times as the festival of the Celtic god Lugh. It is the beginning of the harvest season, time for ripened berries, and the turning of the season wheel toward autumn. It is one of the fire festivals, celebrated with dancing around the fire and maybe jumping over it.

Here is a contrast from a Lughnasadh celebration at my house in 2005 and a foggy morning crossing the Nisqually delta headed for work. The art piece on the fence is by Phoenix artist Joe Ray.
