crepuscular rays and pale shadows

Current work: Gelati book revisions (last bit)
Listening to: Def Leppard, X
Reading: Jan Jones, The Kydd Inheritance (still not started it yet as too tired to read last night)

Lack of sleep really isn’t agreeing with me, because I keep forgetting to put my camera in my handbag. Which I really should do in December and January because this is the time of year when the skies are gorgeous on the school run. This morning, there were some neon pink crepuscular rays. Stunning. But all I had available to snap it was my mobile phone, which doesn’t have a zoom on the camera; although I wouldn’t be unfair enough to compare it with my proper camera, I’m sure the camera on my old phone was a bit more effective.

Anyway. This is (a pale shadow of) what I saw this morning.

Last time I used my proper camera for crepuscular rays (and yes, this is the same place), the pic was rather better. Sigh.

And this is (a pale shadow of) the gorgeous sunrise I saw last week. (Given the differences between the two pics above, you can imagine what the real thing was like.)
Must. Try. Harder.

Hopefully by Monday I will be back on top of my work and other situations, starting the new book, and will be a bit chattier here than I have been of late. (Crossing fingers, touching wood that I haven’t just jinxed myself and now yet more hassles will come to roost. I would so like a nice, quiet, peaceful few weeks.)

Have a nice weekend!

I just finished A Christmas Knight last night and really enjoyed it.
I've read a few of your Modern Heats, but this is my first of your medicals and it won't be your last.
Hope that makes the day brighter ;-)
