Well, besides the thrill and entertainment of going on reconnaissance, the other purpose is to find places to return to. SE of Gleichen there is a wonderful tree. When I found it around 5 days ago, the light was poor. This morning I woke while the stars were still out and went for a drive. I got my new favourite tree in this morning’s early light. There were 2 minutes when the sun was just cresting the hill behind me and giving a warm glow. By the time I had clicked the shutter a dozen times, danced the jig of the morning photographer, sol was veiled in a morning band of cloud. The photo is better than the one from earlier this week but I think there is still a better capture possible. I am always amazed at how the right light can be so fleeting.
I have seen this hotel before, from the main road, and thought it make a worthy night shot. Today I stopped. This morning’s hazy pale light I think suits the scene. The
third photo is a new contribution to “The Thin Line” series from this morning.
Another day and more green highlighter on the paper map. All and all a good morning.

Love the tree! I too wonder if there’s another shot there. Maybe in winter. A black and white photo, perhaps?
As always thank you both for visiting and your comments. I tried a black and white photo on my first visit and was not happy with it. It may well be a next winter shot.
Lovely! The light is everything.
