Can I get away with this?

Can you stand another sunrise photo?  From the same morning as the last sunrise post?

I had intended to do a longer blog today.  I have the drafts of several prepared, but all still need a lot of work.  And Ms Mitzi, whose days are nights and nights are days, had me up four or five times last night, wanting to play, to snack, to go pee, to see what Allie (who was banging cupboard doors and playing with Rudolph the Red Nosed Mouse) was up to.  So at 4:30 AM I finally gave up trying to sleep and put on a pot of coffee.  And while it wasn't a productive day, it was a day in which there was no time for a nap.  So now, at 9:30 PM, I am simply too tired to revise those drafts or to create something new.

But just because I know I have at least two readers who come here each morning, coffee mug in hand, hoping I have posted something new, I feel an obligation to provide something to kick start their day at least a few times a week.  So, if you can stand one more sunrise, here's a shot I took on the same morning as last day's post - this one using the telephoto at full extension to capture the rising sun illuminating the North Shore mountains on the mainland, far far beyond the containers anchored near the Crofton log sort and mill.

It always amazes me that something which is actually an hour's drive north followed by a two hour ferry ride east can sometimes seem like it is just across our small bay, reachable by canoe or kayak or a nice gentle swim.  Oh the beauty of our world through the telephoto lens of a camera!

you most certainly can get away with it. Especially if I don't have to get up in the wee hours of the morning but can still see the beauty AND not freeze my butt off. thanks Jean, keep up the good work..give Ms. Mitzi a pat on the head for me...M

I too come here every day, coffee in hand.
I know you surely don't lead a blissful, quiet life...but it looks that way in your serene landscapes.

Publish when you can. Each is appreciated.

Another lovely photo and it does look like you could just hop over to the mainland, oh, how I wish there was a bridge!!! I know you Islanders don't think that,so just bear with me! lol
As far as Ms Mitzi being a night hawk, I have just the opposite here! Yesterday I had to wake her up at 9 a.m. to go for a walk!!!

Yes we can stand another sunrise, always!
Thank you for thinking of us, lol. Your pictures are such that I can revisit them and see something I had not seen the day before in each of them so never worry, this follower with her first coffee of the morning enjoys new but revisits old as well :)

Hope you can have a nap today
