This was such a lovely setting I thought it would be nice to get a shot of the day's first light, touching the rocky bluff across the lake, so I climbed up the slope a ways and waited for the sunrise. I waited... and waited... this was one of the coldest mornings so far and the sun was in no hurry at all, so while I waited, I noticed this Escher-like scene looking over the other side of my perch.
