Monthly Movie for February

I intend to shoot a short, 30-60 second video of the homestead’s view every month, hopefully from the same spot on the beach.

Funny, I decided to try to avoid taking these movies on a sunny day, since I didn’t want to give the wrong impression. In the time I’d intended to shoot the video, I had one cloudy day in a long string of clear ones; I didn’t get out to shoot it on that day, so I had to settle for sunshine. Wouldn’t it be ironic if that happened every month?

Recently, I saw something that didn’t make sense to me, and I got photos to back myself up!
