Dawn, right now.

The pink sky got me looking for the camera, which I found in the pocket of a coat hung near the front door. The search was annoying, but it ended well, with me seeing a more direct view of the sunrise from the front of the house...



... photographed not through a window, but standing outside, without a coat, in the 18.5° — "Feels Like 8°F" — cold. Nice! (When you're out there for 30 seconds.)

Take warning

You Obviously have a Camera with the "Thomas Kinkade" Lens Option.

The "Thomas Kinkade" Lens Option would have yellowed up the windows in that gray house.

And inserted some deer in the yard.

I'm Thinking Kinkade in His Little-Known 'Blue Period.' He First Painted a Tiny Guitar, then Painted the House Over It. He Knows it is Still There.

Wow.

Keep the camera on your belt in some little pouch.

I've done that since the early 60s, starting with a Leica model F, which still has what I used as belt clips attached.

The problem with this early morning brightness is that it wakes up the dog.

Lovely. Very lovely. Thanks for stepping out in the cold for us.

Like your comment at 7:18. Though I noticed that the lens you do use often inserts Zeus into the pictures.

Reminds me of the old Dick Tracy character...B.U. Tiffl.

My first thought was "Amityville Horror". It is a beautiful photograph though.

What demented people live in a climate like that?

Heck, it was only 17 yesterday morning in the tropical portion of Maryland.

No sunrise here today; after 3 inches of snow, Winter Storm "Pax" turned to rain on us. Yuch.

These fans were briefly priced very cheap and I ordered a couple dozen.

They're all over now.

In the winter they're useful for moving floor air to the ceiling, and drying up water pools by the dog's dish, but you wind up with a fan surfeit mostly.

Very quiet, narrow stream, 10-15w.

Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.
