Sunrise 20 Sept 09 no ceremony

A fairly typical morning sunrise. The glass on the firefinder with the tin can lid is what I use to release window-stuck critters...flies, honeybees, ichneumons, etc. The door and windows are open often.
....and yes, I do DO windows. Some of the panes are likely 75 years old, and that angle to the sun just exacerbates the impression of (lack of) clarity. But yes, if I'd known I was going to take the pic this morning, I'd likely have washed them once again. 8^)

"Do you do windows?" of the top questions on the qualification list for fire lookouts. 8^)
Handheld and way too fuzzy......but feels right upon waking up. Kinda HDR like.
