Being a coward at heart, I have been reluctant to go out with the camera this winter. In truth, when it is best for shooting such as after a crisp, white snowfall, the timing hasn't been propitious. Mostly though, the weather (to put it in the common vernacular) has sucked. We've had rainy days, cold days, overcast days, icy days, and blustery days. These are not the conditions that appeal to an old fart (to once again put it in the common vernacular).
You may have noticed that I am feeling uncommonly common with my vernacular this morning. lol
However, just yesterday morning, I noticed some fairly nice light on the snowbanks way beyond our bedroom window. So, I sacrificed my decrepit body by trundling all of the way downstairs for my camera. I further sacrificed by changing the lens to my longest, one that zooms to 400mm. I did this mostly for you, you understand. (Or should I write you'se in keeping with the common vernacular?)
Back up to the bedroom went I, opened said window, zoomed fully, and took a few shots. Even at 400mm, I had to crop to eliminate extraneous and non-photogenic detail because the scene was at quite a distance.
These are the resulting images. It is not exactly wall-hanging material, but it is something. The snowbanks, by the way, are from the plowing of adjacent parking lots.
We have no or little snow forecast for about the next week, but maybe I'll be able to haul the enfeebled and rickety old bod out sometime before the season is done. After all, there are about 6 months of winter left — not really, of course, but it will seem that long. I don't mind winter, but it does tend to wear out its welcome.
