The Glorious Winter Sun

Today, joy. Way up high, the sun.

High up above us, in the shallows of the sea of glorious winter fog Okanagan Lake gives off for the entire length of its 135 kilometre fresh water fjord, there is a continuous pool of brilliant light. Wherever there is a thinning of cloud (such as at Turtle Point eight kilometres to the west, in the image below), it breaks through.

For us, here in the trenches and canyons below this sea, there the sun is for us — often shining from within the lake. We live within a sphere of light.
