Marsh at sunrise

I got up early this morning and took the dogs up to the top of the hill, above the marsh. The wind came up in the night and I didn't think I would be able to hold my paper still enough to paint, but by this morning, it had calmed down almost completely, however, the air was still cold.

There is a houseboat, I think it is part of the patrol, that sits out in the center of the reeds. I had forgotten my glasses and although I could see distance just fine, I couldn't see up close, well enough, to even attempt to draw it.

What a lovely view you have! And it is done so delightfully. It looks and sounds like such a wonderful place.
