Blood Before the Storm
No riding today as a heavy storm blows through our corner of the mountains. The moisture held off for a few hours in the morning, and I got this shot as I took Django out for a morning stroll. He peed and sniffed; I slurped coffee. A good time was had by all. Getting up before sunrise has its rewards, and I often get a good view of the oncoming day. Cool vocabulary for the day: crepuscular. The meaning here has zoological applications and designates animals active before sunrise and after sunset, the edge dwellers. As the loony set declares: If you ain't livin' on the edge, yer takin' up too much room!
