Charles Dickens - The Old Curiosity Shop
The night crept on apace, the moon went down, the stars grew pale and dim, and morning, cold as they, slowly approached. Then, from behind a distant hill, the noble sun rose up, driving the mists in phantom shapes before it, and clearing the earth of their ghostly forms till darkness came again.
Taking the picture was easy, I just pushed the button. Finding an appropriate title was the real challenge.
I left the house a little after 6:00 AM. I was headed up the canyon to hopefully shoot a sunrise above the clouds. I stopped along the way to capture this scene just because it was purdy.
When I arrived at my destination, I hiked several miles to the top of a peak not too far from home. It started out a crisp clear day with patches of fog in the low-lying valleys. Within 20 min the clouds were over me and it began to snow. It never snows here. By the time I hiked back to the car, I looked like a drowned rat. The sun never showed up and it rained all day.
When I got home, I made a fire, poured a cup and spent the rest of the morning with Charles Dickens.
