It is still winter, yet here you can see for yourself the benefits we enjoy here from the warm waters passing by here from the Gulf of Mexico. The sun has finally decided to make itself present here in The Lowlands. Still crispy and cold, but due to no wind, the situation at hand was a joy to paint. The sudden heat caused termendous evaporation to take place, thus one can not distingush, were the horizon line is. The whole area above the sea was covered in such a thick layer of vapor, it made for an interesting simple, yet pleasurable viewing condition!
