The days are getting longer. It's light out before 7:00AM and yesterday evening I noticed I could see out the window with no outside lights after 5:00PM. JOY!
I took these photos on Sunday morning pre-dawn when Winter decided she absolutely had to go out.
There was a cold mist in the air which made the pretty halo effect. I had the lens fully extended to macro which makes it difficult to get a reasonably clear picture. I generally use a tripod when using macro, but I just wasn't up for getting out a tripod at 5:00AM!
I am rolling slabs today. Thus the moon shots, as I think looking at a bunch of wet slabs has all the excitement of watching grass grow!
It's snowing in a half hearted way.....sugar dusting. I'm not a fan of lots of snow, but enough to cover the bleakness of winter is nice.
This is the anniversary of the Blizzard of '78. I remember we went to pick up Proge at his school just as it started and told the headmistress she should get kids home. (We were thanked profusely later) Going was no problem it took us over an hour to get home...17 miles. The snow was so deep we couldn't even get the 4 wheel drive truck out. Proge's father and I ended up digging the half mile drive. .....most of it was two paths for the wheels to follow. I think it took about three days. It wasn't hard to dig as the snow was compacted enough to carve it in slabs. We were relatively young and healthy and there was nothing else to do. We kept building snow forts along the way. That is why people get so crazy around here when any amount of snow is predicted. Gotta have milk and bread and beer!
Stay warm and as always, thanks for stopping by...............*s*
