Meadowgrounds Lake

We went for a short drive earlier this evening to check for ducks & geese on a nearby lake. Clouds & fog were present, but I took couple shots anyhow. Color was lacking in the scene, just a little brown from the ground, everything else was grey or black. I really like black & white photos & this seemed to be a good time to do a couple.

Outside My Window

This is another view from my window taken yesterday. Incredible, what can be seen by just looking. Off to do some shopping..................................

In southcentral PA we have been blessed this week by 2 ice storms. One reason I say blessed, is my family has remained safe & warm, the other is because I can never look at this crystal world without a feeling of awe. Add a little sunshine & double the WOW factor. I did venture out with my camera for a few shots. Pretty cold, but well worth it. I am sharing a couple of those photos. One is the view outside my office window of an icy tree limb backed by the county courthouse, another shows the view that I unexpectedly caught working at my computer this afternoon, a third shows a close up of pine needles.

I'm excited!!!

Got an early Christmas gift this year! A Fujiflim S700 7.1 megapixels 10x optical zoom/4.8x digital zoom with image stablization. Best of all, my favorite feature is macro & supermacro. Love doing the close up shots. This camera is near enough like my old one that I am familiar with how to use it, but has new stuff to learn also. So, of course weather has been cloudy & ugly since the Friday night purchase. Not so good for outdoor stuff, but I practiced a little on the babies & my christmas tree. Today, my job took me to the Roaring Springs area, so I stopped to "shoot some ducks". I played a little, tried some different settings, & all in all I am quite pleased & am posting a few of the shots.

A day with Granny

Spent yesterday with a grandson. I am sharing on of our quieter moments. He celebrated birthday #1 in early November & believe minutes like this are few & far between. He reminds me much of his father as a small one. Lots of chattering, growling, & activity.
