I guess I wasn’t prepared for the amount and intensity of snow we had yesterday morning. I suppose, had I read the forecast, I might have been better prepared. I was pleased with the all wheel drive of my car. That was one of the things I insisted on getting. I have been a little unhappy with the car as it doesn’t have xenon headlights or sensor bumpers. My own fault for not doing enough research before buying the car. However the AWD is awesome and it helps make up for some of the features I didn’t get. It was an easy drive this morning despite the slick roads. It took me 20 minutes to get from my house to the highway (normally a 5 minute drive) because traffic was moving so slow, but aside from that the trip was uneventful.
I really missed the shot of the day however. I have shown an image of two horses that I go by about every morning, on this blog before. Yesterday morning when I went by them they were standing back to back heads down and snow accumulating on their uncovered backs. The snow was heavy enough that it would have made the image amazing. There was absolutely no where to park and I was already 30 minutes late so I didn’t even hesitate. I’ve regretted all day not stooping and taking that shot.
So instead of that amazing shot I’ll show you this little Ring Billed Gull. They were plentiful on Saturday. People apparently have been feeding them lately because they exhibited none of the fear like they did in the Spring. So it was very easy to get close and make an image of them.
That’s all I have for today. Hope you enjoy your Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
