First One Up Lights the Fire

that’s me. first one up. newspaper, kindling, and bits of wood were all arranged in the wood stove last night, ready for the touch of a match. when i returned from snapping this photo, the camp was already starting to warm up. i threw a few more sticks on and closed it down.

Wind in the Willywacks

steady, fifteen-mile-an-hour winds are whipping up whitecaps on the pond today. i needed to secure my hat with a scarf tied under my chin to keep it on my head so i could snap this.

Drama Free Zone

in the the few minutes after sunrise, before the wind picks up and disturbs the surface of the water, tranquility reigns. i bundle up and oh-so-quietly take my coffee outside, hoping that the rest of the household continues to slumber on.
