Sunlight was streaming though the window for a very, very short bit on Dec 20, 2013. Then it was gone for the day hidden behind tall spruce, cedars and arbutus trees.   Nov sun ii 009

This shot is outside a month earlier and the reflection of the rising sun catches the silhouette of the trees surrounding the yard.

    The ginger cat Gentile enjoys her breakfast – the time change meant that she was a late in getting fed.  Her impatience is captured here.  No program has touched this photo  – it is the same as what my camera holds.

What I find interesting is the reflection in the water black water dish in that it carries on the vase with the butter fly in  it. The only light was the overhead light and very low at that.  The sun would not rise for half an hour so that I can rule out.  

Any thoughts?   I have no explanation.
