January Sun


One thing which has been fairly scarce these past weeks has been the sun. Each morning, the grey skies would paint a bleak picture for the coming day. It has been pretty dark in the morning as well - dark enough to require "lights on" during our commute to school and work. Add in the fact that my office is devoid of any natural light and it is a formula for Seasonal Depression. Fortunately, I get to leave work when it is still daylight outside, or I would feel as if I was hibernating, without the benefit of the added sleep.

Such was the landscape this morning - thick clouds hanging low on the prairie, after yesterday's drizzle. What a pleasant surprise when I saw sunlight at lunchtime. The temperature was a tolerable 45DegF, add in the sun and it was quite pleasant. The kids were able to play outside after we got home, and that is when I took these pictures.


The Scrapbooking message board I frequent recently posted a Photography challenge on "shadows". When I picked the kids up from school, I had the perfect composition picked out, but no camera. By the time we got home, the shadows had become too long to get decent picture. No big - the kids were more than willing to give me several big smiles.
