The 7 AM challenge

Martha, over at Living Among Tourists, posed a challenge: “Show your town, or your sky, your 7 o'clock in the morning wherever you are.” Aside from the obvious challenge of having to drag one’s ass out of a warm bed on a Saturday morning (of a long weekend no less), finding a suitable subject (or subjects) and fiddling with a camera while still half asleep took some effort. But I did manage to get a couple of photos to share.

  1. Thanks for that effort on a weekend!

    Great photos, love the warmth of the first photo and one of my favorite sights ever is seeing the moon in daytime. Excellent! Thanks for sharing your part of the world!

    Good morning!

  2. Hooray for sunshine first thing in the morning.

    Don't you just love waking up to that?

    1. I do, but I'd be a lot happier if it was June 1 rather than September 1. :-)

  3. Bravo for getting up to snap a photo on a holiday weekend. I'm with you, I think it would be better if it was June 1 (last June 1, so as not to get a moment older any faster than necessary right?) I'd relive this summer in a heartbeat though I know you might not wish too with the woes you've had. Hope to connect in Delta.

    1. Karen - So would I, it was a great summer up until July 24, and there's still ;ots left.

  4. I assume that last pic was taken as you were dozing off again at 7:05AM? I was on my "two wheels", on a nice half hour ride to the golf course; it was a beautiful morning. Nice pics!

    1. Sure, rub it in. If you're going to be like that I'll hide the good scotch until after Thanksgiving. :)

  5. Dear Canajun:

    Why do you encourage BobSkoot in this foot fetish thing?

    He probably printed that last shot out and hung it in his garage.

    Fondest regards,
