In the Mist



When I first went out this morning Orion was so bright he seemed like ice fire in the sky. There was a wall of mist over the river....each car on the Thruway lit it up white, then red, then back to grey.




By dawn the fog had crept up the hill and blotted out the stars, but as the sun came up the icy mist was wonderful...

In the Midst

Probably this guy

Of writing chores and Thanksgiving dinner prep we had to clear off the kitchen table. Seems somebody got their first deer and we will be processing meat this afternoon.

I am STILL making a blueberry pie....

Congratulations, Amber!

The Rock

Just as it came out of the camera

Walking the fields and roads most days....things I pass become landmarks of a sort. 

The round metal washer about half way up the hill that probably fell from some bit of machinery or other. Certain rocks, like the pretty bit of Feldspar almost buried near the old chopper, the potato rock complete with eye, which I finally relented and dragged down here, and any number of other things.




Changes get noticed too. Thus when a big old rock along the road behind the barn split when the boss was bringing the machinery down for the winter it caught my eye.

To me it looked like a dinosaur or a dragon or some other mythical monster, so I took a quick photo in passing.


After a little cosmetic work

This weekend I played with it in Paint, and what do you know...it IS a dinosaur.


Or maybe DinoDog

Upside


Downside


Birding has been slow lately, perhaps because the river is still high. The water is often smooth enough to take photos of birds' reflections though, which is kind of cool.

Red Sky





At Morning....or pink and gold if you prefer....It didn't last long, but it was nice while it did.
