An Overcast Weekend

 

Well the weekend is over now as it is Sunday evening .  The weather has been a mix of mild  , chilly  and land has been damp  with over cast skies  dreary and gloomy but with out the rain , Papa and I haven't done much other then putter . Even the birdies outside haven't been very busy either at the feeders , all has been quiet !   Miggs and I went for our morning walks  and even the valley seemed quiet . The week ahead is to be sunny so I am hoping so I need the sunshine and seems like the birdies and critters do to  .  I took only a few photos of the outside  tree lights  from inside the living room window as I am always practicing my lighting and depth of field  for my photography .

         I find night shots  tricky to take  either I have them too dark or to light  but practice I shall !

  Well now .. I have noticed the lemon cakes I got from last weekends Christmas craft show have been dwindling lol !

What a great photo of you and Papa -- Next time add Miggs wearing her fun Santa hat! :-)

And I know what you mean about shooting in the dark -- It's hit or miss for me too, but when I get them, like you did, the results are lovely!

Take care, and hope your weekend is ending on a good note!

As I was reading and looking, I was thinking of what I liked and discovered I loved all your pictures.

Love seeing the picture of you both together and Miggs all decked out for the holidays.
