12.24.2019 Quabbin Dawn from the Pelham Lookout

Figured I should give the ice a break with something a bit warmer although it really was not warm at all.  Sunday the 22nd was our last cold day for a while as we are in a bit of a warmish spell for a few days with yesterday nearing the 50’s.

If you look closely, just above the horizon slightly left of center is a little flotilla sailing across the sky.


Holiday greetings to all for whichever you observe.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or Happy Kwanzaa. I hope the celebrations are joyous and full of warmth for all. Ours will be a quiet day with just Mary Beth, one of her sisters, and me…and Bentley, of course.

    Merry Christmas! We’re staying near the Dunedin Botanic Gardens (NZ) again so hoping for a nice fine Christmas Day. Had a quick look earlier and the flowers are still amazing, just a new cast of colours.

    Merry Christmas to you, Joe, I hope you and the family have a great set of holidays. I absolutely love that Christmas tree, the sunglasses are perfect. Brought a real smile to my face. Now I’m off to help my mother make some traditional family recipe breads for the season.

    • Pretty sure your comment was meant for someone else, but if I see Joe I’ll pass along your greetings. 🙂
      Special breads sound like a great addition to any Christmas meal, Todd. Have a great day with your family.

        Wow! That’s embarrasing. My apologies, Steve! 🙂 Turns out we didn’t make any bread today, I think we’ll do that for New Year’s. Today we made gingerbread cookies and perogi’s for tomorrow. The day turned out well. I hope you have a beautiful Christmas tomorrow!

      • No problem, Todd. I’ve done similar. In a way I could say I made some bread today. Somebody liked a refinishing job of a family antique and gave me a nice tip. 🙂 Cookies and pierogis sounds like a nice start to a holiday meal. Have a great day with your family. 🙂


  4. Beautiful. And merry Christmas to you too!

    It’s hard not to hear strains of “O, Christmas Beagle” wafting through the air now that I’ve seen your wonderful tree! I like the flotilla, too. The colors in that one are beautiful, although the sweep of the clouds in the first is just as appealing.

    • My initial response to this location was those clouds and then the horizon building color. But then I put on the 16-35 and noticed the moon so did a wide shot of everything. The moon was actually a bit larger but wide shrinks.
      I really enjoyed the beagle tree and have shared it several times over the years. Wish I had thought to do it with all four of our beags. And I like your version of the song too.


  8. Unlike the rest of you, we had two December 25ths this year, thanks to the International Date Line. The first December 25th began in the Philippines and the second ended in Austin after we landed half an hour before midnight.
