Spring, Is That Really You?

The temperatures here, since Springs official arrival, have been staying in the high thirties to low forties during the day. The low twenties are not uncommon at night. Though they have dipped into the teens a time or two just for good measure. As mentioned before the Sun has spent very little time in my corner of the world this winter. It has been the same this Spring as well but today must have been worthy of its presence. I for one am glad.

Here is a few photos from the Hill I took before the Sun went about its daily, or nightly, rounds. Enjoy!

The Bride discovered this as we and our Corgi, a.k.a. The Boy, were out walking our place  this past weekend. I set my Powershot SX10is on B&W in manual mode for this capture.

One From An Old Friend

As some of you may know my beloved Canon Powershot S3is is now deceased. I have purchased a used Canon Powershot SX10is and look forward to the season to come for more photo ops. In the mean time I have been cruising through my old shots to fill the gap till the-things-that-bloom arrive this Spring. Here is one I took with the S3 in the Summer of 2011.Enjoy!

Seagulls In January

The sun decided to show up today and I personally rejoiced. The gloom and cold has been a little heavy upon me so far this Winter. The problem is there is no blooming and colorful things to take photos of plus no sun and this all adds up to a whining me! Just saying. So what is one to do when the sun shows up? Take a late lunch is what I did so I could get a few shots in with my new-to-me PowerShot SX10is. Off I went to the lake and found this normally duck and geese populated landscape over ran by sea gulls. Sea gulls in the heartland? In January? Well none the less I do what I normally do: I took the shot. Enjoy!
