We were “up and at ’em” at 4:30 a.m. today (April 23,2017) and all was well over Killarney Park. Looking east from Willisville Mountain – Cranberry Lake and The Notch.

Earth Day – La Cloche Dawn April 22, 2017

2017, April 22 Earth Day

A heavy frost and lazy wind (you know, the wind that goes through you instead of around you) on this Earth Day morning.

My photo partner (who happens to be my best friend and wife) and I had another great time photographing pre-dawn from Willisville Mountain in La Cloche.

April 8, 2017 and our first morning up the side of Willisville Mountain this year. Five a.m. felt earlier and the vantage points higher than last year for some reason. What will tomorrow bring?
