I was out and about looking for some interesting shots. What I really wanted was a red tailed hawk. Usually they are a dime a dozen when I don't have my camera but now that I had my camera and my new 70 -300 mm lens not a one to be seen. Not a pheasant, not a Canadian goose, not a red fox, nada nothing. So.... something we do have plenty of. Old corn fields and old fences, snow and more snow.
It is so hard not to get reflection from the snow. I forgot my polarized filter so the corn is bleached out. With each new lens is a new learning experience.
The water always looks blue when it is frozen, kind of a blue green. I liked the colors. Makes it look later in the day then it was when I took this.
I was looking for something Ruby for the ruby Tuesday photo shoot. Wasn't sure if these would be red enough.
The barn below was just way to bleached out in the shot. So I played with it. I like the way it turned out. Looks like I painted it....
Woke up not only to a region covered in snow, but to social media streams crammed with complaints about it. I find it amusing given puny humans' complete powerlessness when it comes to influencing meteorology. We can predict it, model it and maybe explain a bit of the why. But we can never change it. So as I watch a Norman Rockwell-esque scene play out on the other side of the window, I find myself thinking about the fun our puppy is about to have as she rediscovers what snow is and how much she loves to a) bound through it, b) stick her little Hershey Kiss-like nose deep into it, and c) roll around in it until her brown fur turns white. Gentle suggestion for the day: Embrace the snow - and life. Because we never get enough of either. And there's no sense devoting our spirit to things we can't change, anyway. #ldnont #snow #day #storm #onstorm #weather #wx #nature #naturephotography #landscape #photography #Nikon #nikonphotography #nikon_photography #dslr #nofilter #nofilterneeded #photooftheday #instagood #monochrome #black #white #london #ontario #canada
