Monday 21 May 2012: Restoration
The signs of summer are slowly descending on Lake Bomoseen. The access is littered with coffee cups and aluminum cans. Someone left a broken fishing pole against the gull's sitting place. All the pieces lost in winter's chill are slowly being restored and soon the full experience of summer mode will be upon the lake. I am a bit melancholy at the loss of sub zero nights and dressing snuggly in Ugg boots and flannel lined jeans.
I am taking advantage of the last of the drier days. Most of this week looks like the sun will be shrouded in clouds like mirrors in homes of mourning. Soon the lake will be too buggy and too people filled for my liking. Same with Lake Beebe as summer descends.
Today is my first day back to a more full time schedule with readings and painting. I actually will be putting in a bit of overtime starting next week in order to be able to afford travel this autumn. It will be worth it. In the meantime the dogs are up to mischief in the yard. Isabelle flung a snake in the air this morning and India is fence running because of deer and fox and groundhogs making themselves visible on the other side of the barrier.
Off and running as they say. Do visit my almost Blips on Flickr. The duck was a very close choice and still wondering if I shouldn't have blipped him instead of the weeds in the first light.
The horizon has been checked several times for straightness. Funny with that bit of curve it makes it seem not right but it is!
This is probably be the last sunrise shot for a while...
