Sunrise this morning



I headed to the lake for the sunrise with my new telephoto lens.  I was spending so much time playing with the manual focus I did not notice the deer in the picture crossing the lake until I uploaded the pic to the computer.  I would love to say I set this picture up but it was just by chance


I was beaten down to the lake by one of our 2 resident rabbits who apparently went down the steps this morning along with a light new snowfall

My email problems are still not solved and driving me crazy.  We have switched servers, it is not the computer as I have tried down loading to this on and the old computer.  I have checked them on line and they are not on the website there either.  I am about to change the email address if needed.  Until I straighten this out use to contact us


Sunrise and I headed to the lake to find these interlopers loitering on the raft.  Looked like a late night drinking party that lasted a little too long


Hey nothing happened last night… we are innocent really… hiccup hiccup


Hey guys lets get our stories straight… we took a boat out to the raft and Ed stole it and left us all out here all night.  No hiccuping or we are busted..  Anyone got some mouth wash….


This picture is also begging for a caption.  My caption is “Hey Ethal I think it is your mom walking down the beach steps wondering where you slept last night… Oppps you were supposed to head up at sunrise we are soo busted”


1, 2, 3 jump in..  think we can swim straight


Race across the lake, watch out for the Muskie’s and Ethal’s mom….  Those are not police lights I see coming after underage drinking party on the raft… swim fast and don’t look back…. look normal and swim straight maybe they will pass by


Barb Ellis made a comment that she enjoyed the misty lake morning pics so these are for her from her buddy Poe.  I uploaded this one big for all you screen saver folks out there
