Christmas Morning

It was clear and cold last night. This morning the sea gulls lined up before the sun rose waiting for warmth.

Eyes Peering Through

What I like most on mornings when there are layers of clouds on the horizon is how the sun shines through.

At times, often, I think, it shines through the layers and appears like a pair of eyes. Are these eyes peering inward or outward?eyes

2017 Super Moon

 

This is the closest the moon has come to the earth since 1948. It won’t be this close again until 2034.

I made sure I got out there tonight for the rising moon because I don’t know where I’ll be in 2034 but I won’t be smelling that good.

Clearing

It was a good day for me to get outside to clear my head.

The wind was strong and relentless. It created a dull roar between my ears that could only be interrupted by the cries of the feeding sea gulls. The continuous blank harmonic had the effect of erasing replays of dramatic episodes.

The sky was big and blue with billowing clouds that took on the appearance of strange objects as the day progressed.

I could not have hoped to accomplish more today.

Cold Out

 

Today’s morning coffee with swans was too cold for the swans apparently. The wooden walkway out through the vegetation and out to the pond had patches of thin ice. This is not always comfortable while holding hot coffee and a camera.

First cold morning of the year in my opinion. Temps in the mid 30’s again but it had settled in to stay. It won’t be truly warm again for at least 5 months.
