I'm a tenderfoot when it comes to cold weather, but when temperatures dip to freezing on the shores of Nicasio Reservoir, magic can happen.

It's a monumental struggle between the sun and stubborn fog. Usually, the sun eventually wins.

Residents and visiting waterfowl tend be just a little bit camera shy. These birds saw me coming.

On my way back from Nicasio I stopped by Lagunitas Creek, and yes, it was doing the same steamy kind of thing. Make mine a cup of coffee...
