Too Dark O’Clock

Being up early enough to get a sunrise shot is the pits, but it looks like I’ll get to see quite a few as long as I have contractors working. I’m going to be a zombie by the time this project is finished.

Mornings are made even more difficult when I have to herd the cats into rooms they can’t get out of so they stay out from under the feet of the guys working. Our older kitty, Cleo, is fine. She is the lovable one and has no problem getting picked up and loved on, which makes it easy to get her corralled. Our younger black cat, Midnight? She is a little bit evil and SO doesn’t like being messed with.

We had them in the same room yesterday but all I heard all day long was yowling. We are trying them in separate rooms today to see if that makes things better.

It took us nearly half an hour and all 4 of us to get Midnight into her room this morning, ending when MC picked her up after donning a nice thick sweatshirt to protect his arms. I’m going to have to seriously think about keeping her confined in that room completely until this project is done. Yesterday, we let the cats run free as soon as the guys were done for the day, but I don’t think we can do that and get her back in again tomorrow.

It might make things extremely complicated if we have to keep her confined completely for the duration.

Moving Sunrise

These are the last specific shots I’ll be posting from my Wisconsin trip. I find these kind of funny as one of my goals for the trip was to get both sunrise and sunset shots from the peninsula, yet the only sunrise shots I got the entire time were from the moving car the morning we left to go on the trip. Taking photos from a moving car is… interesting.

I didn’t get that many that turned out because I invariably ended up with a tree that had been right next to the highway end up in the center of my shot leaving me with a fogged out blurry mess. I still got a couple to show how amazing it looked that morning, but I seem to have missed the best ones with the fog shrouded trees all the way up to the highway’s edge.

So that one isn’t great (at all), but you can get a sense of what I was talking about. We hit a couple of patches of really dense fog. At that time of day it makes it really interesting trying to drive. It added to the eerie feelings a bit when you are the only car on the road at that time of day and you don’t see another one for over an hour.

This really was a beautiful start to what was an amazing trip.
