Stupid girl....

I’ve been sick lately with bronchitis….so sick that I was off of work for 3 days last week and then another 3 days this week.

Yesterday was my first day back to the job. I didn’t feel fantastic, but I wasn’t going to pass out either. When I left at 4:30 pm it was with the intention of heading home, heating up some soup and then crawling into bed.

Then I glanced towards the lake.

Big mistake.

The sun was beginning to set in a wonderfully clear sky and the sunlight was gilding everything it touched in beams of golden brilliance.

I turned around and drove to the jetty with the idea of snapping a couple of shots of the sunset and then heading for home.

Yeah, right.

An hour-and-a-half later I finally got back into my car, chilled to the bone, and cranked up the heater as far as it would go.

I got some amazing shots, but spent the night coughing so hard I couldn’t sleep.

Oh well, it was still worth it.

You and me both, sista! I was hacking away all night.

You can always get another chance of that once in a life time shot...but you better take care of yourself if you want to live to see another chance. Take care of yourself...
Love, DAD

Beautiful shots! I love how you captured the sun in so many varying stages of brilliance.
