For more than a week, I popped on Facebook and my blog only long enough to whine about the snow we were having here! You may have caught some of those messages. First we got about 10-12 inches last week Thursday, a bit more over the weekend, then another 10-12 inches on this past Monday, and few more inches during the week. I'm sure the Northerner's find me a wimp, but it's one of the biggest snow storms I remember in my ?? years living here! And certainly the most snow I've shoveled in a week's time!
Cleaning off the driveway! There's a bit of concrete!
A path to nowhere...
So how could I resist more snow photos for "i heart macro" this week?! Well, I couldn't.
Would you like to sit down on the compfy deck furniture
and watch our backyard friends play?
(To think I emptied it of this much snow just a couple days before!)
How many of you know what this is?
For all you trackers! Here's another set to guess at!
Took a BUNCH of squirrel photos, but I'll limit to just one.
#7 - "Snow Bird"
Oh wait, that's our neighbor's back yard!
Now THIS ONE is ours!
And a few more snowy, icy shots!
These are not my typical macros. I played with the macro, zoom, and light settings to try to get the hang of taking photos of white snow against a white or gray sky! Focusing on a blob of snow seems a bit challenging for me, actually!
Hope you enjoyed photos from the Midwest Snow Storm 2013. All this snow and ice is pretty, but it's also a lot of work! Here's hoping this following week includes a big melt-down!
Stay safe and well and warm!
