The tears that are required to have a pot of gold

Wed Nov 30:

Friday December 1st.
But tears had to fall to create these rainbows:

I remember my friends with tears of love.


Gentle deeds of Kindness

On this second Sunday of Advent let us remember past acts of kindness, even as some slip into forgetfullness.

Sunday Morning sunrise

Fresh snow, still not Lucy-ripe, but getting there. Certainly not going to stay at plus 3C. Still - yes also still. Still, it is a pleasant sight. Refresher course on past memories:


And a total to join them:

And some details - about snow! I must be out of my ???? - ?

Sigh --- W O B

4 Hours after reflecting

Just a couple of before/after shots, taken almost exactly 4 hours apart.

Slight shifts to emphasize either the reflections or the clouds.

Nothing common about "Common"

I felt I could not end today, so-called "Black Friday", on a possibly misinterpreted low note - I sought out the dramatic lighting this morning to make a contrasting statement to the previous couple of entries. Not because I was sad or suffering.

As a contrast to the 7 Trumpeter swans I present 2 "common" Common Mergansers in breeding plumage. I tried different ISO settings because the lighting wasn't the best and I wanted a good depth of field because I
could not depend on the auto-focus to work - flat lighting. Here are a couple of 2 different birds:

They were approx 100m from shore, just beyond the "pack" ice flows. Temp rose to 7C.


Friday Morning - what a difference a day makes: 24 little hours

P L U S 4 C!

There is however, beauty if you open your eyes - and your umbrella?
