November 10, 2004
November 10, 2004 dawned with a vengeance. It was bitterly cold, with a strong wind from the north that cut right through you. There's no friction on the lake, therefore nothing to stop the icy blast except my pitiful excuse for a jacket.
The new condominium wasn't yet completed so I stole to their concrete decking with my Sony Cybershot to watch the show. It was a spectacular sunrise. Swirling clouds looked like tornadoes. The upper level winds must have been tremendous as this morning's play changed acts every few minutes. Deep, bright cobalt sky, violet lake. The Sony did a tremendous job considering it was just a 5.0 megapixel. It was one sweet camera, that Sony.
Flipping through the photos, frame by frame, I'm still amazed at how quickly the skies changed that morning. My hands red, ears aching, I had to leave the lake for the warmth of home and coffee, but it was a "really moment."
