Dawn of a new season

040605sunrise.jpg OK, I admit it. I have Spring Fever, along with either a cold or a severe allergy attack (not sure which yet). Tuesday's incredible Spring day will, for the most part, repeat today before rains move in for Thursday and Friday (rain in the mountains in April. How unique).

OK, I admit it. I have Spring Fever, along with either a cold or a severe allergy attack (not sure which yet).

Tuesday’s incredible Spring day will, for the most part, repeat today before rains move in for Thursday and Friday (rain in the mountains in April. How unique).

Time to contemplate putting the top down on the Wrangler. Time, also, to start work on the lawn. Past time, actually, but the weather of the last two weeks has kept me out of the lawn and given moles, crabgrass and whatever a head start.

For the past couple of weeks, we have debated whether or not to buy a chipper/shredder. With all the trees surrounding the house, branches dot the landscape but last weekend’s high winds (one gust hit 74 mph) sent all kinds of twigs and branches down onto the yard. No more debate. Add a chipper to the growing fleet of lawn tractors, snow blowers, carts, spreaders, rollers, etc. that now occupy the garage. Mulch anyone?

Now, if I can just get over this cold, allergy or whatever the hell it is…

  1. I usually wear Artic Explorer sunglasses (heavily tinted and polarized and intended for Artic use in bright sunlight) and use neutral density filters on the camera lens. This shot used a +3 ND filter and was shot at f/22 at ISO 100 (Canon DOS1Ds Mark II) with bracketed exposures.

  2. Doug,
    Ya just cant have too many briggs and statton powered thingies. I love the chipper shredder, it really is a good way of working out anger, etc. But very dirty work with chips everywhere. Its so bad ya have to hose yourself off before you go to shower. It is good for making a couple of beers taste really good, but only afterwards.

    You also have to get a power sprayer, they will clean lots of things really fast and fun!! Cats not thrilled with it as a flea remover!

    I love your misty images, real Camelot evocative.
    I am starting to play with those heavy filters that pass infrared, to which the digitals are sensitive. I always wanted to do IR photos, but there was just too much overhead tech wise. IR is real interesting with fresh bright new green foilage. We should get some up here almost any month now!!

    See ya on the RR

Keeping time around the world

In a period of my adult, professional, life, I spent many days (and nights) on planes flying around the world. For many of those years,
