I have three black and white images for you today. Why black and white?
I went out yesterday to look for some snow images and was greeted by a dense fog. Not the best formula for landscape photography, however you take what Mother Nature gives you or you don’t make any images. 🙂
I see this bridge to no where everyday on my way to work. It’s on the far side of the road and the sun is usually shinning directly toward the camera so I don’t often make an image of it. Yesterday however I had the time and the inclination so I crossed the road (think chicken) to capture this image.
The Hurstville Lime Kilns always make for a good shot. I liked the way the snow interacted with them. Remember you can click on the images to see a larger more detailed version.
Finally for my good friend Betty. There were some geese on the “duck pond” resting from their journey. I couldn’t pass up a chance to photograph them.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
I saw a lot of wonderful winter scenes that begged to be photographed on the way to work yesterday. Of course because of the weather and road conditions I was already very late so I had to pass them up.
I did manage to capture this shot of the Hurstville Kilns on the way home last night, which is good news on its own. There was actually enough light (at ISO 640) to capture this image at 5:20 p.m. 🙂
Busy day ahead and I have to travel to Cedar Rapids. I will of course take my camera and hopefully see something of interest.
Enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
Happy Thursday! ~ 253
Back to work yesterday although not hitting on all 8 cylinders but made it through the day. Since it was an unscheduled day off I had to do Tuesday’s stuff as well as Wednesday’s work but I was able to get most of it done.
I didn’t have any lunch plans yesterday so I took my camera out to see what I could find. It was the wrong time of the day and I had the wrong lens for shooting flowers but that’s what caught my eye so that’s what you get today. I love to shoot flowers but have been so engaged with bird photography of late that I haven’t paid much attention to the beauty they offer.
I was looking for other things, which is why I took the 80 – 400 mm lens with me (which does not work well with flowers.) There were some geese at the Duck Pond and I did make some images of them, which may or may not make the blog. Although it is full of water the Duck Pond has very little wildlife at it now. The Swans come from time to time and there are a few geese there but not the constant stream of birds as in past summers. 😦
So after driving around and looking for things I came back to town by way of the Hurstville Kilns. A couple of weeks ago I photographed the flowers there and they were pretty close to being overwhelmed by the flooding. I’m happy to report that the little park has been cleaned up and the flowers seem to be doing just fine.
That’s it for today. I have another busy day and have to go to Cedar Rapids for a meeting. Thanks as always for stopping by the blog. Hope you enjoy your day and be careful.
