Blue on Blue on White

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.

Isn't it wonderful?  I thought about b&w (of course) but the blues are just too lovely to get rid of.

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.

Muah
