Time for some more Winter images. It’s been about a month so why not? This shoot was just to document the snow cover; no web page was planned. As I kept shooting, I found inspiration, and the result of that is here before you.
This is my ADT Security sign next to my front steps. It’s not of much of a deterrent buried in snow, is it?
A view of the snow in my front yard. There is nothing special about this image; it’s just here to document the snow. As you can see, there is plenty of that.
Some icicles hanging from my roof. The blurred background helps accentuate them.
A mistake image. This shot of snow on my roof would have been much better had I used a larger depth of field. Everything should be in focus on a shot like this, but it isn’t. Why is it here? Because many can learn from mistakes. What is with the shutter speed? The image was taken in Program mode. Another mistake. I’m an idiot.
The stick lives! I got a lot of positive feedback on my stick shot from February 3 so here’s an update. It’s still there. Boy, am I milking this, or what?
Remember the music video “Epic” from Faith No More? That featured a fish flopping around at the end. The lead singer wore a shirt that said “THE FISH LIVED” at a later public performance (I think it was Saturday Night Live, but I don’t recall).
The ubiquitous icicle shot; complete with water drops. The high shutter speed (with increased ISO to 500) wasn’t fast enough to freeze the drops but that’s ok. It’s still a neat shot. The fuzzy brown/black streak is one of my trees.
Similar to any image from January 4, another jet with a well defined contrail shows up. This is looking up through the trees in my backyard. Another total grab shot. Kinda cool.
Scott Woelm; King of Kontrails. Hand-held at 300mm, the VC of my trusty Tamron comes through again. The jet was centered on the original image, but I cropped it slightly to follow The Rule of Thirds. How’s that for honesty?
Did you enjoy these images? Well, I never left my yard to take them. So, why can’t you get similar shots? Hint; your camera cannot take any images when it’s sitting in a bag in your closet.
