Happy New Year!!

It has been frigid to say the least

The creatures are looking for food

Bunny's parsley is frozen solid

Birds are fighting for a space at the feeder

15 minutes later, no more tracks, 
the snow is coming down heavy now.

I tried to cover some salad for Bunny

I will hate myself in the Spring when her offspring eat all my Petunias!

Stay safe and warm!!! Happy New Year!

This is what it looked like this morning out back.

This frost just settled on everything.

90 years young!

Saturday we celebrated Lillian's 90th Birthday!!

Here she is with her four Grandchildren

Happy Birthday Mom!!
Slap me upside the head. I left my camera on the kitchen counter.
This is a cell phone shot. 

Fortunately we did have someone there with a real camera.

P.S. I'll be in and out reading your posts for the next week or two.
I am overwhelmed with busy.

Let There Be Light

This time of year the sun rises on the power line side of the house.
I rarely photograph this side but the sky is quite
dynamic in that direction.

This was taken with my Canon on auto. I added a little contrast.

This one was taken in almost total dark so is a bit grainy but the sunrise was worth it,
I tried to sharpen it and lightened the shadows a tiny bit.

Cell phone shot - Unedited. 
Frosty Morning

I thought about this challenge all month and wanted to do something creative with indoor light.
Maybe next time. I was just too busy traveling and working. 
However, I never stop pointing my camera at the sky so there is plenty of light!

I have been away on business
as you can see by the pictures below

A quick jaunt down to San Juan Puerto Rico

To preview hotels for our 2015 educational event.
Not much leisure time but enough to get some sand between my toes.

It was quite windy, but warm and humid. 

I'm home now...

Yesterday Morning

There was an icy fog in the air and frost on everything.

I can't believe it is December already.
What happened to June??

These are pictures taken last December at this time.

I have not been out and about with the camera so 
a substitute is in order.
