What a sight...

It is an amazingly beautiful day today. Sunny, crisp, and cold (18 F). So I went to Auke Lake to take a couple pictures. With the height of the mountains only a few places have the right light on them to take pictures in the morning. Most of the other senic spots are best lit in the afternoon and evening. Auke Lake is a good morning spot. It's thinly frozen right now but I've been told that Mendenhall Lake is frozen thick enough to walk and ski on. Perhaps later, if the weather holds, a trip to the glacier will be in order.

UPDATE: I went to the glacier and was about 30 minutes too late for the good light. Who knew that 1445 was the last time the glacier would be completely in the sun. When I arrived at 1515 it was half in shadow. Perhaps tomorrow, weather permitting.

I wonder if the whole world is in sunshine these days! After so many gray days here in Germany, we've had sun all weekend. What a great shot of Reflection!

Thanks. I hope you're enjoying the sun as much as we are. Unfortunately, it looks short lived and the overcast weather is back today.

It's 3 days later and now we're getting the rain! Makes you really enjoy the sun when you have it. Actually, I like rain but I don't usually have to be out in it like most everyone else.

Well, we're enjoying the tail end of some snow. It feels so quiet and clean with snow on the roads and roofs.
