cold and early at Nicasio Reservoir

Oh, I probably could have gotten another 40 winks--the sun is takes its time to arrive this time of year. But there I was, camera and tripod on top of my favorite boulder at Nicasio Reservoir waiting for the show to begin. I waited, and waited some more. Plenty of time to count 7,451 fish jumping for tasty insects. Plenty of time for me to consider it all. Plenty of time to soak it all in. It was cold, very cold, but I barely noticed. For me, this is bliss...

Not a cloud in the sky. Plain vanilla except for hues of red and orange that would soon turn to yellow, then vanish into a long day of primary blue.

Birds--Canada Geese, actually--in a somewhat cooperative and organized line. Loud and discordant squawks about who knows what. Some sort of destination--but who knows where.

Great shots. I too went out this morning way too early as it was for I sat there waiting and waiting for the sun to break the horizon. "I could of stayed warm in bed for another hour!"
