All day yesterday the robins were on the ground all puffed up and not looking happy at all more dumbfounded then anything  as we had  cold winter winds, snow blowing around  and falling ! Yeah sure most of what fell started to melt almost right away but over night the temps dropped drastically and ice was formed  . I mean REALLY ??? WINTER AGAIN  ????!!!  GEESH !!!!!!

The sun is rising and temps are to be as of today so lets hope this is truly the last of the crappy winter  weather and spring can carry on !

                        Mother Nature what are ya doing to us ?  , it isn’t  funny  April fools  day has passed  so should winter !!

                                                                    Until next time my friends !

Papa’s Lightning Photos

 

On the weekend when the boys were down , Saturday evening we had a thunderstorm and all of us were out on the porch watching the lighting show as Papa was taking photos of it !

Papa has his camera on  the tripod for these and has it on timed exposer for 30 seconds that means the cameras shutter stays open for 30 seconds then shuts  to capture the lightning .  This kind of photography  is called  Timed Exposure Photography. Papa has been very successful in this type of photography and over the years has captured fantastic shots of lighting .

                                                 This lighting was at the back of our property over the fields !

                                          At times the lighting was so bright it lit the yard up as if it were day time !

   Until next time my friends !
