Here comes the sun…

I love waking up in the morning to look out the window and see what kind of magic is happening. Every day the scene is different. Some aren’t spectacular, but a surprisingly large number of days are. Today’s photo is from yesterday morning. I took this after the sunrise, which wasn’t as amazing as it sometimes is, but the clouds, sun rays, and brand new leaves on the trees made this one special.

What’s a werewolf to do?

Nightscape

Had a nice full moon the other night. The clouds helped to make things more interesting than a simple full moon though.

New deer in town

Fawn in my backyard

When I returned from Copenhagen a month ago there were a couple of baby deer frequently hanging out in my backyard (as there are every year). But they were several weeks old at least.

The one pictured above I caught sight of a few weeks later and it looked much younger, maybe born within the prior few days. You can’t really tell how small it was without some comparison so here is another picture of the fawn with its not-very-large mother for perspective.

Home again; jet lagged again

Ashland before 5 a.m. with the shutter open for 30 seconds

I’m back in Ashland after five and a half weeks in (mostly) Scandinavia. In my first two mornings I haven’t been able to make it past 4 a.m. Maybe tomorrow…

This photo, BTW, shows things as being much lighter outside than they really are. This picture isn’t the first time I’ve found myself jet lagged and taking a shot like this.

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny that visited my house either knows that my kids are now tall enough to search for their goodies in trees, or he (she? it?) thinks that such placements will be beneficial to capturing more yellow jackets.

Ellie becomes a teenager

This past weekend featured a slumber party of 11 girls at our house. (Two hadn’t arrived yet when I took this picture.)

Last year’s party took place at a park (Yoyogi Koen) in Tokyo, as it would have been quite impossible to have 11 girls sleep in our 700 sq. ft. apartment then.

Another foggy sunrise

We get lots of foggy sunrises in the winter and spring seasons. This one is from yesterday. There probably won’t be many more in the next 8 months. I like ’em, in part, because no two are the same.

Breakfast View

Today was raining, but this past weekend featured some really nice blue skies to go along with snow. I’ve shown this view before. It’s the scene from my dining room while I’m eating breakfast. Every day looks different and this one was a good one.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…

I pulled today’s photo from the 2004 archives. Ellie was 6 years old at the time. Time flies…

Colorful scene

After several days in a row of little or no sun last week, it was nice to look out the window one afternoon and see some blue sky breaking through some white, fluffy clouds. With the Japanese Maples still pretending it is fall and the pines remaining as green as ever, this presented the viewer with a cornucopia of color. There was even snow on the mountains to offset the colors with some whiteness.
