Anyone living here wouldn’t disagree the winters are dark. While many of us find a quiet beauty in the gloom, the sun is never taken for granted and we certainly rejoice when it warmly smiles on us.
P.S. Blog readers, I’m sharing the color version with you via the featured image for this post. I decided to go with the black and white as I felt it fit better with what I wanted to say. Enjoy both versions!
Another balcony shot from work. I made a few different post-process attempts, but wasn’t pleased with any. Posting as is for a streak shot.
A very interesting sky on the way home today.
The sky was fascinating today; clear for miles, then completely obscured within seconds. The sun fought through a few times, and in the end lit up the clouds with color as it set behind the hills.
Steam rising above the rooftops fills the sky. It’s actually blending into low hanging clouds, and I prefer this out of focus shot. It is much more interesting to me than the shots that are in focus.
A trail of metal ants finding their way home in the foggy blue.
Just a quick snap of this view from work before heading home today.

I was super pleased with this shot only because I managed to capture some stars. Depending on your viewing screen, you may not be able to see them. them. (they are quite small)
None of today’s last minute – ack! I have to take pictures! – shots stand out as a favorite. I don’t like any of them. This one was taken from the north balcony on the 9th floor of my office building. No title needed. Day 13, over and out.
