Okay, so it’s more white on blue on blue but that doesn’t make for as catchy a title. 😉
Good Sunday morning to you! It is just before 9 and I am sitting on the deck quite happily. It’s a little too sunny for my taste – I’m still wary of the sunshine, even though the lidocaine shots have improved my photophobia – but it’s 16*C (around 60*F) out here with a little bit of a breeze. How could I not be out here?
Today’s photography offering is
a single photo that I took last night. two photos that I took last night. I can’t decide between them. I think I like this first one slightly better than the second. They’re two perspectives on the same thing – the evening sun over the lake, shot from the observation deck on Grand Bend’s main beach. I was in love with the way the sun looked – white and pristine in a perfectly blue sky with hardly a cloud in sight – and the reflection of it in the lake. The darkness of the beach offered a suitably dark counter-balance. Even the silhouettes of the children playing on the lifeguard adds to it all nicely.
This first one is taken without any zoom. The second one is 2x zoom. I wanted to cut out some of the beach, change the perspective. I certainly did that. It has its own merits but… the more I think about it, yes, I like this first one better.
Cutting off the actual sun did diminish this second picture a bit but look at the beauty of that shaft of light.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
In other news, I finished the Shades of Pink story! Val said, “I WANT MORE!!”
There is no more. It’s a short story (9,500 words) and that’s it for that. It’s hot, hot, hot though. It’s called Faith and Trust and the tagline for it is
A sizzling tale of love, lust, fear and freedom.
Nice, eh? hehehe You’ll have to donate to Kallysten’s Breast Cancer Awareness drive to read it. I will give sneak peaks as we get closer to the book’s release.
For now, I’m going to go back to
trying to finish finishing Birdie & Rolf’s story. They’ve just left the meeting with Michelle Duff and they’ve been in a holding pattern for too long. It’s so nice to have my brain back!
Hasta la vista, mis amigos.
