Boxing Day

Out to walk the dogs this morning and the mountains across the strait were suddenly so much closer. It may not show too much at this resolution, but with our recent snow, everything is that much higher contrast, has that much more reflected light, so the details visible stand out that much more.

The camera doesn't catch what the eye does, but the eye also fills in detail that may or may not be there. The mountains looked so close this morning that you almost expected to be able to see houses or cars.
This won't last long. The weather is set to change--tomorrow is forecast to be +6°C or better, with rain or sun for the next four or five days. The snow we have left will be gone so fast, along with this morning's view across the water.
