Sunset Collected

Hello again! I saw a beautiful sunset shaping up, so to speak, and hurried home to get my DSLR and attach the 250mm zoom lens. I wanted to be ready for a closer shot than my iPhone would provide. In my rush, I opted not to spend the extra few minutes to drive down the road and get the power lines out of the shot, so I apologize for that.  I hope you enjoy these. I sure enjoyed watching this sunset evolve through its variations.

Steaming Snow – 52° on January 11

We’ve had a warm-up in Central Indiana in the middle of our cold, snowy winter. Much of the snow is already gone. But as I looked South from my home this morning, I saw steam billowing up from the snow that remains in the shade of the nearby woods. It seems to be rolling quite high – 50-60 feet high is my estimate. I believe the tallest trees in the woods in the background are about 100 feet. The weather report for today predicts a high of 59°. Won’t be much snow left tomorrow.

Have you seen anything like this in your region this morning?

It was sprinkling lightly this morning. The obvious threat of more rain made me wrap up my little photo adventure. This photo documents the water level in the farm ditch as high as I’ve ever seen it in the 10+ years we’ve lived in our current home.

Orange Beach 2012 – Gallery 1

Here’s a gallery of recent photos from an Orange Beach/Gulf Shores AL trip. This gallery includes higher-quality pics than the previous post.

Along with shots from the beach and from our condo, we also took a short hike on a paved trail in Gulf State Park.

There will be more photos coming soon. I hope you enjoy these. I especially like the last photo of the night fishermen.

Forgive the quick  post – wanted to show a couple of nice sunset shots from my phone. I’ll post some shots from my camera soon. Enjoy!
