The sky wasn’t all that exciting as I left the house yesterday. But seeing as it was January 1st, I felt I should give it a shot, so to speak. My first impulse was to go to Mount Pollux, but when I arrived there the parking lot was packed and I think some folks were having a sunrise service. I might have found a spot for myself away from everyone, but there wasn’t a spot to park. So off I went to Owens Pond in a rush. I really didn’t need to as it took quite an extra little while for the sun to crest the treeline. The sky was relatively cloudless and pretty flat as far as color went. So here is my first sunrise of 2015 in living monochrome. Not the most exciting image, but at least I got out there.
As a side note, it was pretty cold and I wore my new Heat 3 Smart Gloves with the heat packs in the pockets. Accidentally, the packs ended up in my palm rather than on the tops of my fingertips and I realized that I could also heat my thumbs when not in use by sliding them out of their fingers in the mittens and cradling them in my palms next to the heat packs. Success. None of my fingers or thumbs ended up with the Raynaud pain that usually accompanies a cold shoot.
