I'm not sure where the image of the pears came from. I found it, already matted in a shoebox full of things that I had punched out, cut out and never used. I've got to wittle down all the stuff in that box!
One more picture this morning, if you're up to it -- Sunrise Over Lake Chapala (taken this morning).
