Snow, snow and more snow. That is what today was all about. This past weekend was a mini vacation for me, and would you believe that I didn’t take any pictures? I have no idea why I didn’t as I had three different cameras on hand. Guess it was one of those times I just wanted to enjoy the experience and not worry about capturing it for all time.
It started snowing in the middle of the night, and all day the snow came down all light and fluffy. Of course I got a little bit of cabin fever, even though I had been out of the house for the past three days. I had visions of taking the SUV out and doing some four-wheeling in the snow.
So I made an excuse to head to the grocery store for a few things and then headed over to Kinder Farm Park for a quick visit. The entrance was unlocked, but signs were at the roadway stating it was closed and trespassers could be ticketed.
Being a little photography deprived, the warning signs didn’t deter me. I figured I could sneak in for a few minutes, capture a few images and get out of there before being noticed. I passed my favorite little pond, and saw some ducks floating around. I’m anxious for spring to hit this little pond and see what migrant ducks show up. Perhaps even the wood ducks will make return.
I zipped out of the park, as I saw a county truck pass me and I tried to pretend that I was supposed to be there. Heading back to the Manor, a neighbor’s horse peered at me from its run-in-shed. Of course I had to stop and get out for a photo.
Back at the manor, the birds were still working on eating every single little seed I had put out earlier. It would have been a shame if I didn’t make the effort to pull out the beast and practice photographing birds in the snow.
I feel that I’m getting a little better at this. Change a little of this, change a little of that with the camera settings.
Today really felt like a bonus Sunday, the rest of the week is busy. Hopefully you were able to enjoy the day today. Bella
