Took this earlier in the week from my weekday home, a hotel room just outside Portsmouth.  I had to rest the camera on a pile of pillows, just to try and stop shake(keep forgetting to up the ISO  :doh: :doh:  ).



I might change it if I find something better in the next couple of days.

What do they say about great minds ... ?
Mike and I must have been very much on the same wave lengh, watching the same sunrise from almost within shouting distance. (If you have a very loud voice!)
I took this one earlier in the week, as a 'just in case I couldn't get another window or door shot.' As it happens, I didn't get another one; been too distracted. So I think I'm in with this, and stay in with this.
(I was lucky, as I didn't have to leave the house to take it!)

I did one of the sunset from our dining room window, on the only non rainy/foggy day we've had this week. Not up to your standards though guys - too many trees in the way and I forgot to turn the kitchen light off so there is a large white reflection in one corner as well.

Still got a day and a half to think of something. Although it's raining again at the moment.

I am lucky; our fourth floor windows can not be cleaned safely; we rely on the rain to wash them down. The inside only needs cleaning if the outside is reasonably clean. That saves a lot of work!
