This begs the question: do I go to work, or do I stay home and play? Take the camera gear and the dogs out to Elk Lake perhaps? Dunno. Most likely I will be responsible and go to work. But damn it would be nice to go out shooting pics again.
The below pictures are the same shot. I screwed up the original (under exposed), so I Photoshopped it to brighten, then attempted to remove some of the resulting noise. I am not sure which result I like better (neither are great).
