Cold mornings make for a wonderful view

It’s cold today. Frankly, it never really warmed up. Topping out at a balmy 15c (59F), we had the oil heaters working overtime and the fire stocked with wood. The nice thing about these cold mornings is that it seems to motivate our soon-to-be neighbour Amanda to get up, brave the cold, and take some amazing photos of Stonecutters Ridge in the morning light. You may remember this shot, when the golf course turned white with frost. This morning, it was our new roof!

Colorbond roof with frost

I can only assume that the tradesmen installing the roof were working that much harder to keep warm this week. It’s Tuesday, which means the majority of the roof, barring joints and rivets has already been installed. Our site supervisor said the roof takes a week to install. Maybe it will – I honestly have no idea. But for one days work, I’m very impressed. It’s finally starting to look like a house! Granted our Woodland Grey Colorbond roof is looking a bit lighter than it will on any other given day, but finally – it’s all coming together.

Well have heaps more photos this weekend of a completed roof (fingers crossed). After all, it will give me a chance to try out my new camera, a Canon 5D Mark II. In case you haven’t seen, I’ve got quite a bit of my work on the website – it’s a big hobby of mine. Be sure to drop me a line if you’re into photography as well – I never turn down the chance to talk a bit of shop.

    Hi Stefan! So this is where you disappeared to! I thought that you’d just gone and got married and forgotten about the Blogosphere. Sure, I’d love to do a link exchange and your link is up under “Expat and International”.
