ABC Wednesday: G is for glow

LinkGuess what happened on Saturday night. A ghostly ghoul played with the glowing moon and tossed it in a great pattern on the sky.
Photobucket
After the ghost retreated the moon settled down into a muted glow.

On Sunday night the glowing moon was joined by the slight glimmer of a glowing star.

Last is another shot of the glowing moon on Sunday night.

Our World Tuesday: Saturday Walk


Saturday was a windy, chilly, and sunny day which turned out to be good for a walk.
Photobucket
This was the second time I saw a group fencing outside in the field beside the lake.
Photobucket
There were a lot of strong shadows that caught my eye.

The goose took its shadow for a walk.

I always like the shadows that bridges cast.

SkyWatch Friday: A little bit of Everything


It is amazing how much the weather changes back and forth this time of the year, and with it the sky changes.

skywatfDSCN6280
All of my posts this week have seemed to have change as a theme.
skywatchfgDSCN6288
When looking through my shots for sky watch it seemed that change was reflected enormously in the sky.
skywatfrdcDSCN6312
It has felt like winter one day and spring the next for much of this month.
skywatchfbDSCN6250
I like the changes although I'm hoping it won't get too warm too fast.

I've already had one day when a few ants started coming inside but they got hit by the cold and disappeared quickly.
skywatfcDSCN6420
I admit to killing the few ants that came inside.

I like almost all living creatures but some I don't welcome in my house.

I think the shot below looks like the aliens are landing.

The shots in this post were taken from last Thursday through this Tuesday.

I love winter trees and have been shooting them a lot before they start getting new growth.

I liked the moody sky with the evergreens below.

I like the mix of blue and white in the shot below.

I heard the titmouse in the tree below before I saw it.

The dogwood below is starting to show signs of buds.

ABC Wednesday: F is for Frozen

First I thought I'd show you my frozen daffodils.

abcwedfroDSCN6695
Sunday night we had freezing rain that changed over to snow and then back to sleet and freezing rain.
abcwedfrozDSCN6710
I have missed not having snow this winter so I didn't mind the frozen mix.
abcwedfrDSCN6721
I went out early Monday to snap some frozen shots before it melted.

Our World Tuesday: A mix of shots and places


Thursday morning before the rain poured down, a friend and I went for a walk at Shelley Lake in Raleigh, NC.

On Friday, the sun came out and I photographed a finch bathing on my deck.
ourworldfDSCN6365
Later that same day I had to go to Durham NC for work.
ourworldbcDSCN6424
I took a bunch of pictures in Grace Garden as well as some facing the Durham Farmer's Market Pavilion and Park.
ourworldscDSCN6430
I love the sculpture that is in front of the pavilion.
ourworldscDSCN6431
I like the variety of seats in Grace Garden.
ourworldbncDSCN6438
The red table and seats are in the park across the street from the garden.
ourworldrDSCN6440
Back in the garden is another sculpture I like.
ourworldscDSCN6449
The shadows were very strong when facing the sculpture in another direction.
ourworldscDSCN6465
The last shot I took Sunday night. We finally got a little snow after the first winter in a long time without any. I've missed not having any snow this winter and this is better than none at all.

The Weekend in Black and White: Cows Hanging Out

LinkEvery time I see cows or horses hanging out in pastures within the city limits I do a double take.

Photobucket
The cows I photographed are on the campus of The North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

I like to take photographs and I use blogging as a way to share my photography. I started blogging for other reasons but no longer feel the need or have the desire to write beyond a narrative for my photography.
