Hot Blue

 
I thought maybe the subtitle would be "There and Back Again," but I never went back again. The morning started with delivering my car to have some work done and walking home. It was still frosty in the shade.

But then the repair place called. Their parts supplier had sent the wrong thing! So they are keeping the car till tomorrow. Then I'll go back.

Meanwhile, I was looking for pictures to bring home. Somehow the sky looked like a hot blue to me. Does that even make sense? It was a strong, glowing blue.

The strong light made all the colors intense.

I loved the depth and shadows of this asparagus field through the trees.

That's about it!

In other news: I'm formatting the trail guide for the Midland to Mackinac Trail, and finished reading a book.

We haven't had a frost yet but I've been waiting for it.
Wonderful blue sky.
