Sunrise on the Lake

I had to photograph the sun rising up over the water this morning. One picture was taken from the porch; I just opened the door and took a shot, the other was through the window in our living room.
A building developer recently bought the property across the street from us and has proposed two different structures (one was a massive single family home as close to the water as possible, the other a seven-townhouse development four-storeys high) that would obliterate our view of the lake but, good news so far, because of opposition from the community and our local elected city councillor, both applications have been withdrawn. Hooray for that. Now it's a waiting game to see what the developer comes up with next.

For now though, a deep breath and a prayer of thanks for the view.
