Stormy Weather

All puffed up and no place to go!


I’m going to try to get out and take some pictures. We’ve gotten about 22″ of snow since 1 AM, which makes me wish I had snowshoes! I should have gotten a pair last year when they went on sale at the end of the season. (Note to self: remember that in March when they go on sale again!) It’s going to be rough going with so much snow on the ground. Even the birds are struggling!

    • Well, you’ve got that right! But it’s really rough going on foot out there today. I thought I might try going “down back” to get some photos, but it was WAY too deep to try to navigate. I decided to plant my tripod right where I was and even then the snow was at least 3″ above my knees!

      Thanks for dropping by … stay warm!

  3. That’s a great shot of the plucky little bird standing firm in a snow storm. Only thing I’d do differently is try to intensify the brightness and saturation of the bird, make it pop out more against the harsh environment.

    You’ve got a natural eye, Cheryl.

    • Well … no. I have a really hard time working my camera with gloves on. I need to try to find something I can wear that fits really well and isn’t too slippery. Most winter gloves are too bulky to be much help and then I end up frustrated because they’re just one more thing to try to hang onto while I’m shooting. Yeah … I’m such a rookie. Sheesh!

      I took a quick peek at your blog … there’s some very nice stuff there! I’ll have to take a more in-depth look in a bit. Thanks for dropping by CurTales!
