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!
