But it is winter.
Sue and I arose at 6 and set out at 7:30 for the 8 o'clock meetup. After few minutes we turned back, for the roads were snow-covered. Of course, we could have made it, but our general policy is to not make an unnecessary trip under those conditions, I turned around.
We were treated to quite a sunrise, so Sue took these from the car.
I knew that we would miss the best of the light by the time we got there, but we headed to the pond anyway. Unfortunately, I was right about missing the best of the light, but one clicks the shutter anyway. First my photo and then Sue's.
We picked up coffee and a breakfast sandwich, and headed to the parking lot by the river.
Sue got a picture, but whatever light there was soon faded, so we drove home to finish our coffee.
We did make the most after our disappointment, and there will be other opportunities to get together with the group.
