Winter (2019) Scenes

The weather here is really putting a damper on projects I want to work on. Between the rain, ice, snow, wind and blasts of arctic temperatures, getting any driveway workshop time is tough.

Believe me, even if it’s 20 degrees out, if it’s dry and calm, I’m out there freezing my fingers and toes off.

The garage is totally torn apart with the insulation/drywall installation, so no room to do any work in there. The rest of the drywall won’t happen until we have a dry truck bed to buy more. On the up side, insulation is 99% completed and it already feels way more tolerable, especially without the drafts.

I’m pretty pleased that I got it done, and even though it’s far from perfect, I did most of it myself.

Besides that, I’ve taken some pictures on the fancy camera that I’ll share because they show the beauty of this weather.

If you are looking at this post on a phone or tablet, you may still be seeing rotated pictures. They are all showing up correct on the computer. Bizarro.

Window Photography

No, I’m not taking pictures of windows. I actually think I would enjoy that though, especially old windows on old houses. But alas, I am being a weather weenie and taking pictures through my windows. It’s actually been a good way to make ridiculously cold weather, and snowy weather, more entertaining.This time of year we have bird feeders up, the snow pretties up the landscape, and there’s always Fargo to use as a subject. Some pictures have even turned out reasonably well…others, not so much.

Not exactly the graceful running shot I had envisioned.

This one I took outside and it was worth being briefly out in the painfully cold temps. I may post a few more from this sunset at a later point. This one is definitely my favorite!

I’m still on all auto. I really need to figure out how to understand all of the manual settings better. When there are pretty pictures happening without my interference, it makes it harder to get moving on that front.
