At the request of reader Paul to show our backyard vista in the daytime I went out this morning and just before 8:30 a.m. snapped this shot of it from the same vantage point as the ones taken a couple nights ago and seen in my previous post:

In the daylight I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the removal of the trees a couple doors to the north now allow us to see the Griffith Observatory (as indicated by the left-most arrow). You’ll want to go check out the larger version up on Flickr here, though I’ll apologize in advance for my addiction to the anisotropic diffusion filter in Photoshop. I just love the illustrative effect it provides.
