What’s that in the sky? All orange and fiery and hard to look at…
On a rare, sunny day in January, I went out to the Public Library. Our library in Chilliwack, BC, is next to a park in which someone wisely planted a fake pond. Yes, fake pond. Complete with water fountain in the middle. I’m sure there’s something natural that was the initial inspiration for this pond, but now it’s a magnet for ducks and geese, like the stately gentleman above. They show up because the people who frequent the library and the park often feed them.
As for the photo, I liked the way the water was an unnatural orangy-yellow from the sunlight that peered out from behind the clouds for two and three minutes stints throughout the day. Yay, Vitamin D!
And judging from what I just wrote, I’m way too excited about a possible early spring and a few more minutes of sunshine. Pathetic.
