When I woke up this morning, I immediately saw that the weather forecast had been right. It was a bright day with clear blue sky, and the fog was already retreating. I rushed out, shot some images down into the valley, over the fog and to the mountains, and in the end I went to these trees, knowing that there would be fingers of light. There were 🙂
The Song of the Day is “When The Sun Comes Out“, and as good as the young Barbra Streisand was, her version pales against Judy Garland’s. I have it on a CD with live tracks from sometime in the early 1960s, but the exact compilation seems to be unavailable now, though I have found the very same version on a CD of the same name, “Over The Rainbow“. It seems to be from the same masters, it only has less tracks. Anyway, “When The Sun Comes Out” and the incredibly sad, heart-tearing “Over The Rainbow” alone would be worth the price.
Regrettably YouTube has no version by Judy Garland, but there is a live version by Barbra Streisand, recorded during her 2006 tour, and while this may be more triumphant than sad, it is no slouch either.
