Images From My Day. January 22, 2010

I hit “snooze” three times, yet still got  up before the dawn, made a pot of coffee, and got out in the pale light of a pre-dawn day.

The route 8A bridge over the Deerfield awaits the coming sun:

I noodled around today, running errands, shopping for groceries, and winding my way back home through the hills of Franklin County, stopping to take this picture of working horses at a farm in Savoy:

They were totally serene in the afternoon air, coming to see me and my camera with smiling souls and gentle breath.

The day wore on, though, and I sought higher ground to witness the setting of the sun.  Here are a couple of shots from up on Windsor Mountain:

Roadside wires:

And a spray of light as the sun tucked itself away:

It was overall a sad day, me being unemployed and impecunious, but it had its moments.  James Taylor on WAMC public radio, raising money for Haiti; a warm wood stove awaiting my tending, and the makings of a good dinner in the fridge.

I have nothing to complain about, and everything to give thanks for.

Have an appreciative evening.

Oh, Daddy –

I miss you and your noodley errands. 🙂

Cool photos. I’m especially enjoying the one of the guardrail; both the color and the geometry (“Nice curves!”) grabbed me.

Ursi, thanks for stopping by, as busy as you are. I liked the guardrail geometry as well.
