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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
