A powerful sunshiny day. Frost - dense haze at sunrise (blue to west, yellow to east - bases of things lost) - Sunlight thru day white - blue horizon - highlights, on trees - bluebirds + robins rife with song at morning; Freight trains echo + re-echo. a violet haze obscures sun at late afternoon - violet pallor over all- immense calm
