Look Who's Coming to Breakfast!
Along the deer track on the dune after sunrise
Here we are back in Duck on the Outer Banks. Just after dawn this morning I looked out and we had company stopping by in time for coffee:) Happily I had my camera nearby but just as I was about to snap the best picture, the deer silhouetted against the rising sun, my battery went dead. Of course it did! I moved as quickly and quietly as possible back in the house to unearth a fresh battery and made it back in time to capture a couple of more images. Too bad it was so gray out. We have had two days worth of heavy fog which lifts briefly and then there is a white out. Actually, I'm not complaining because it was a great excuse to lie around read and watch old movies. I really needed a break but now I am getting the itch to start painting again. The fog lifted enough for a sunset tonight and I think the forcast is good for tomorrow. If not I brought a painting with me that I can finish indoors. I'll keep you posted! http://www.jeanschwartzpaintings.com/
