Today it is in the double digit MINUS temperatures. It was -15F when I took this from my porch, and it is now -16F and going down more later.
There are a tremendous number of tracks in the snow this AM from the frantic feeding that must have been taking place during the night. I guess the animals make a run to the grocery when they know they will be hunkered down for a few days just like we do!
This was taken with my Droid Razr and the ProHDR Camera. Fun again!
Yesterday I spent the day sewing on my sweaters. This morning, the machine needs cleaning, but first she has to pose for me.
Love the fluffy against the metal, and the light from the machine gave it all such a nice glow.
Now she is done with her morning ablutions; clean, shiney, lubed and ready to go back to work in her "day " job, and wait to model again some other day.
Very cold and very gray here today.
This barn is right down the road from us, and I really love it. The expanse of sky, lawn and tree mean that even though it is a very simple subject, it changes dramatically with the weather and the seasons.
You will probably see many more barns in the coming weeks.... I will miss those when we move, and am determined to have good photo memories of them.
Take care if you are outside these days... my fingers took about 30 minutes to recover from being outside uncovered to shoot this!
I couldn't sleep last night. Woke up around 1:30 and tossed and turned for a long time. Finally gave in and got up... seemed like a good time for a "selfie".
This was shot with my tripod and a very slow shutter... all natural and downloaded as is.
It is very cold today, and the Junkos are looking like gray and white tennis balls!
It is amazing to watch these guys fly in and out scarfing seeds as they go!
Their little yellow beaks are especially noticeable in this gray weather! Today the sky and the ground are all the same color.
We have celebrated each New Year's Eve, for 35+ years , with our best friends, playing Scrabble and toasting Champagne. This year was no different.
We hedge our bets of staying up by celebrating on London time - that is where they are from - and then on NYC time... so if we don't make it to Midnight Midwest time, all is not lost!
This was shot through my flute, looking at the Scrabble game.
