Breaking News in South Lake Tahoe, California.
This just in:
Spaceships descend on Planet Earth’s South Lake Tahoe area.
A series of Unusual landing strips mar the existing Lake Tahoe air field.
Aliens leave behind what appears to be giant boulders of Kryptonite, casting a frighteningly eerie glow on native pine trees.
Throngs of people in nearby casinos and hotels suddenly disappear.
This sci-fi moment brought to you by the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
I found several photos that worked for the theme of Unusual . As I began to edit them, I combined all three into a very short story. The top image is a series of overhead ceiling lights in the Palomar Hotel in downtown San Diego. The second image shows the odd lighting of my solar lamp sitting on our picnic table. The third image was actually taken in South Lake Tahoe entrance to The Hard Rock Casino Hotel. On a cold Autumn night, miniature metal pine trees are silhouetted within the elevated fire rings lined with glowing, green rocks.
Maybe it really IS kryptonite?
I watch too much sci-fi!
