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.

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.

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.

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.
