March 24, 2015 -- Sky on fire


One lucky time exposure before it got dark.




An hour, over 200 time exposures.

March 10, 2015 -- SUN!

After several days of overcast skies and rain, late this afternoon the cloud decks drifted off to the east and the sun shined for about an hour. Later, advection fog formed at ground level, and it was kind of spooky with the security lights in the distance outlining barns and houses. Then the fog took over and blanked out the stars. It will be dense in the morning. Still have mud, but most of the snow is gone.

March 1, 2015 -- In like a lion, waging war. Snow. Rain. Snow. Rain. Snow. Rain. etc.

I thought there was a war going on this afternoon! The snow and ice were melting off the garage roof, banging into the siding like gunshots, and crashing like glass in heaps.




It was war, I tell you!
He's TOUCHING me!!!




And they waged their little war.

Feb. 18, 2015 -- It's so, so, so.... blue!

It's so,  so,  so.... Blue!
Suddenly they stopped dripping! Temperature started falling. (Blue enhanced a little bit).




And you thought snow was white.

It isn't often that I get to make two banners!

Feb. 16, 2015 -- Snow!

Too cold to go cross country skiing, maybe tomorrow. But Snoopy got to go flying, harrassed the yard ornaments, then landed (if you want to call it that) in the driveway.



Well, botched THAT landing!

So, you want to know how we did that, right? Well, tie a string on the end of a bamboo pole, balance that and the camera at the same time, dangle Snoop, focus on him bobbing around out there 8 feet away, and shoot a hundred times. Then Photoshop on the string for a couple of hours, and WaLAA (that's French for YeeHaw).

Thanks, LAD for the Valentine's Day card. Fronsters! (frost monsters).

February 4, 2015 -- Up. Early. Me?

Had to get up early this morning, got rousted out to see the moon setting. Good thing it isn't groundhog day (cloudy on Feb. 2 -- no shadow, so maybe short winter).
Bald Eagle was cleaning up an armadillo next to the runway. No, it wasn't alive any more.

January 7, 2015 -- Through a pane, unwashed

Double pane window, no pains taken to keep clean; winter's painful north wind and almost zero degrees. No self-respecting critters milling about out there...
Lemmeeee INNN! Frost ghosts. Froasts?

Help me! Help meee.. Frost monster trying to get in. Fronsters?
