It’s currently 30 degrees and cloudy up top. Yesterday’s high was 46 degrees, with an overnight low of 27 degrees. We received .8” of rain yesterday. Expect icy trails, with these cooler temperatures.
The mountain appeared unchanged from days’ past - clouds blanketed everything. A thin layer of frost reminded me that I wasn’t living a repeat of yesterday. It was a new day, a different day. I continued my routine and prepared for sunrise.
Hot rooibos tea in hand, I hiked toward Myrtle Point. Above, a colorful light seeped through a tear in the dense cotton cover. Curious of what the sunrise may bring, I chose a high vantage on the point. As the sun rose, more tears in the fabric appeared. I knew my window to capture the shot wouldn’t be long. I released the shutter. I recomposed for another shot…
…the hole was already patched.
P.S. – I hope you all have an excellent Christmas Eve.
