Each morning as we drive to school we round a corner in the road and there's an open field. Some days there's a cloud hanging low nestling among the trees on the edges. A month ago there were over forty Canada geese foraging for breakfast in the mornings, only their graceful heads peeking up over the tall cover. This morning the sky was pink and clear and every single airplane that had flown by had a trail hovering - more than twenty. Almost every morning I think (as I'm on the road), I should bring my camera and take a picture of the sunrise every day. Quickly followed by a list of reasons it wouldn't work: the peeps would need to cooperate, I'd need my tri-pod, etc.
A few times I'd take pictures while I waited for the boys to be done with soccer practice.
Or I'd have someone else in the car take a picture with my phone.
Now, soccer season is over and the days are getting shorter; if I want any more good sunrises and sunsets it's going to take a little more effort on my part. I've been missing Lake Superior on fall mornings - the field down the road isn't as majestic, but it's what I've got.
