Now That’s More Like It !!



The weather that is lol  .  After yesterday and Tuesdays initial shock of snow and ice , all has gone now thank goodness .   The sun is shining temps are once again rising and all is back to what it should be SPRING !!

I spent the best part of the day yesterday walking the yard looking for things to photograph as this time of year there isn’t a lot  ,  wild flowers aren’t in bloom yet  nor are any of the bushes  but they are all bursting with buds just itching to pop ! The birdies are busy feasting , singing and making nests  , critters are just busy eating and Miggs is watching over the yard .

                                                                  Buds on the trees .

All day yesterday the robins were on the ground all puffed up and not looking happy at all more dumbfounded then anything  as we had  cold winter winds, snow blowing around  and falling ! Yeah sure most of what fell started to melt almost right away but over night the temps dropped drastically and ice was formed  . I mean REALLY ??? WINTER AGAIN  ????!!!  GEESH !!!!!!

The sun is rising and temps are to be as of today so lets hope this is truly the last of the crappy winter  weather and spring can carry on !

                        Mother Nature what are ya doing to us ?  , it isn’t  funny  April fools  day has passed  so should winter !!

                                                                    Until next time my friends !

Papa’s Lightning Photos


On the weekend when the boys were down , Saturday evening we had a thunderstorm and all of us were out on the porch watching the lighting show as Papa was taking photos of it !


Papa has his camera on  the tripod for these and has it on timed exposer for 30 seconds that means the cameras shutter stays open for 30 seconds then shuts  to capture the lightning .  This kind of photography  is called  Timed Exposure Photography. Papa has been very successful in this type of photography and over the years has captured fantastic shots of lighting .


                                                 This lighting was at the back of our property over the fields !

                                          At times the lighting was so bright it lit the yard up as if it were day time !


                            Both Papa and I love thunderstorms and watching the lightning ! Fantastic shots Papa !

               And we have snow on the ground this morning and  it is still snowing  but it is very wet snow so wont last long , more on that tomorrow , all I have to say is this weather is soo out of whack !

   Until next time my friends !
