Default Before the next snow...

I cannot believe we are looking at another snow day this next week, so I went by the Arboretum to see what was starting the bloom, hoping it won't all die sometime this next week.

E30 and 50-200 SWD plus the EC20..

............hard to believe more 'weather' is coming. We got in 3 days of baseball tournament, cold but ok. Game scheduled for Monday and another tournament scheduled for next weekend, who knows about all that.
On another subj..... granddaughter Krystal is making lots of photos with the E-510 lately.
The shots above are really nice (particularly the jay in the pine) and express a feeling of Spring that feels good. I will remember these next week when the snow happens, uggggh!

Nice pictures. I sure like the first one though, and the bird... nice composition... the little space to the right... used of thirds... nice contrast and colours! great!

Exquisite images, Greg! Here's hoping the prognosticators are wrong. For this area, their record is terrible.

Nice shots! Smooth background. The use of the converter added to the 55-200mm certainly helps producing a very shallow DoF.

Default Feel guilty about the snow...

The simple fact your getting hit in Texas, the east coast is getting nailed, and the frozen bird baths in Florada makes me think I'm not keeping up with our end of the stick.

Then last night the weatherman stated we are about 10" over our "normal" snowfall, and are due for 6-10 overnight and tomorrow.

I have a cousin in Toronto that just had to clear snow for the first time a week or so ago. Such is life.

Hope the late snow doesn't mess up the new growth. We are still a ways away from that!

Nice photos Greg.....come to think of it I've never seen a bad one from you.
Love the Jay, we have the Stellar's Jays up here. Cheeky devils.

Hard to imagine you guys expecting more snow. We've had a wonderfull couple of weeks here in the NW. The Daffs are blooming early. Spent last week re-roofing my little rental house. And this weekend mowing the 2 acres or so of my fast growing grass....In the bright sunlight. Going to be a nice sunset, it's getting that haze out right now.

Another nice job Greg. The jay is my personal choice; liked the pose among the evergreen branch.

P.S to all the Texas Guys: stay warm next week!!

I second that. I normally like snow but my enthusiasm is wearing thin here in the mid-Atlantic states...
