Ahhhh, a day off...

So, it was early in the AM and I was taking in my morning caffeine infusion on the porch, re-reading Helliconia Spring by Brian W. Aldiss (not recommended if it's a little chilly in your favorite reading spot) under leaden, cloudy skies, when a sudden glare of light tore my eyes up from the page. I sat there blinking for a second, then stampeded inside for a camera. Sorry the shot didn't turn out better, but the lighting effect only lasted a moment or two and this was the best shot of the bunch.

Here's this morning's actual View From The Porch:


That's the cool thing about living on the lake here; five or six times a week, Mother Nature does something that makes you want to stick a dollar in her garter belt. :)

Excellent photo, I feel a bout of cabin fever. Where I'm at, we've been getting heat waves up to about 40 degrees...

You are very lucky. And I, well, I am very jealous. ;)

Tam, Mother may dance a bit more suggestively if you put more in the ole garter belt. Inflation has taken its toll.

I sure enjoyed the picture. There's not much in the way of water and trees in this country.

Thanks so much!

I made it the backdrop for a song before worship rehearsal, and the team liked it so much that I made it the "Welcome" graphic that people see before the service. It'll be there until the next rotation in March. :)
