Instead, I'm out on my bedroom balcony enjoying the sunset. Stop and smell the roses. Right?
A haze has hovered over the island for most of the summer. Indonesia is using fire to clear land, and the ash floats over to Penang. For days, the whiteness blocked out the sun, and I haven't been able to see more than partway across the straits. I couldn't even go outside last weekend without my eyes burning.
But today, the haze has lifted. And the sunset was spectacular.

I took this photo with the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V that hubby gave me for my birthday last month. It's a point-and-shoot, and I'm loving it.
