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.
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.
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.
