108 – Snow (Continued)

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on February 7, 2010

Views of our driveway and snow covered trees today.  At least the sun was out, but it was only in the low 20s, and there wasn’t any melting.

106 – After the Snow

Posted in Aviation by lwroffee on January 31, 2010

There were only a couple of inches of snow at the airport today, but the shady sides of the wings were covered with ice.  Even with a lot of brushing it didn’t melt in time for a flight.  The helicopter did a good job as a snow blower, however.

I caught the last rays in the woods behind our house.

It has finally warmed up a bit here.  I caught the late afternoon sun on a street lamp.

101 – Way Too Cold

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on January 8, 2010

It has been way too cold to venture out for picture taking.  I know, I could be a wimp, but.  The family Christmas photos are here.  And, I have updated some other galleries here.  A few days ago, I caught the light just right on the glass in our entry foyer.

96 – Cold and Sunny

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on December 6, 2009

It was cold and sunny after yesterday’s snow.  I caught the melting snow on a branch looking like caterpillars, and the snow in the tree tops looking like blossoms.

77 – Inside Day

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on October 27, 2009

It was rainy and I was tied to this computer for most of the day.  I did play a bit with Photoshop and Lightroom for this image of a wine bottle and glass.

61 – Early Morning Sun

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on September 15, 2009

I really should make it a point to get up earlier.  Dawn and the early morning sunlight are perfect for photography.  It’s the night-owl in me that hinders early morning wake-ups.  I suppose retirement has a bit to do with it also.  I had to take my wife to the train this morning at O’dark thirty, and got this image of the woods behind our house.

47- Blue Sky Over Washington

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on September 1, 2009

Ok, so I used a polarizing filter on this shot, but today was a very unusual day for September 1 in Washington, DC.  Seems like autumn has come early.  We had clear deep blue skies with temperatures in the mid 70s.  Very nice day.  I couldn’t resist making a quick tourist trip to the Washington Monument.

40 – Skylight Sun II

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on August 25, 2009

In addition to the bottle of seasoned oil I photographed yesterday I had taken some shots of a clear glass candle holder sitting next to the bottle.  You could tell it was pretty cheap glass from the way the light didn’t refract.  My good wife saw the photos, and this morning I found a crystal goblet sitting in the same spot.  How could I not photograph it?
