A mighty storm swooped down across the mid-west, I am sure many of you have heard, felt or seen it in your area.
Winter has arrived and blew her frosty breath for attention.
I decided to see what my little Sony Cyber-shot point and shoot could do at night, during a brief lull around midnight. You all get to see how it and I did with no particular settings.
I have mentioned before, I play with pictures, I tend to point fast and snap. I know for the good photos I need to slow down and learn to use some of the settings ( the few this little purse size camera has). When I visit your blogs I am always hoping to learn some things.
I thought these first two gave me the feeling of a spooky night, that it was, you never know what you find after a blizzard in my yard...
this would be the railroad tie wall that holds up the hill behind our house.
the snow is up to the top of the tallest RR tie about 4 feet tall.
looking the opposite direction towards the direction out, towards the road.
only light source was from a small porch light.
I guess I was steadier for this one
I believe the blue spots are wet snowflakes on my lens.
Winds blew all night and temperatures dropped, bring the deadly sub-zero wind chills with it for morning, and continued through the day.
what a difference daylight makes!
Here was just one of the surprises from the wet and heavy snow.
up on the
house top garage roof, snowflakes fall...
So we still wait to remove snow and frozen limbs and sticks ( it is always a game of pick up sticks, here!) as the wind makes it to cold to attempt going outside, unless you are a very furry abominable snowman. We can wait until tomorrow and see what that day brings. Hubby will see if the lawn tractor with snow-thrower attachment starts. It better, we just had to put a new battery in the car, ughh.
Mr. Linky is below so I, and others can come visit you.
I am also linked to A Beautiful Mess, A Hobo Mama and Live and Love Outloud for more Wordful or Wordless Wednesdays to enjoy.
Snowflakes, blizzards, wind or just rain...
How did you survive the storm?
Do you have any photo pointers for me?
Until next time...
I love your comments
Oh geezers! Now you all can see how screwy this weather and the bad cold I have been battling has done to my head...
I posted an early Wednesday! LOL!
