On Thursday,February 13,I got this text from my friend Sydney.
Hey,Ruth! I just saw the moon,and it looks fantastic! Good photo taking opportunity. :)
I stopped washing dishes and went to look outside,but could see no moon.
You see Sydney is attending Bible college about an hours drive from here.I fired a text back,telling her that I couldn't see a thing.Finished the dishes and took another look outside and this time,there it was in all it's beauty.
I grabbed two cameras and stepped out,but not before sending another text to Sydney.I love all this new technology,we are many miles apart,but still connected.
I took several pictures first with one camera and then using the Canon SX50,I got this image.
This is the best picture I have ever been able to get of the moon and all thanks to my sweet teenage friend. Thanks Sydney,Hugs.
From the moon up above to two people down on earth who bring sunshine into my life.
Steve and Kai made use of some of the snow hills on my yard.The picture is not great because it is taken from inside the house.I love seeing Kai and her Daddy having fun together.
On Monday,February 17,my cameras won out and I took them for a ride in the country.
We even found a couple of birds to capture.
The Black-billed Magpie is not a bird which waits around to get its' picture taken,so this is far away.At least the sky is blue and the weather was pleasant.
Also on Monday,I finally saw my first Snowy Owl of the winter and it was only a few miles from home. I would have liked to be closer,but am still happy with this picture.
I waited until after Valentine's Day and was able to pick up a dozen roses at a reasonable price.
There is nothing more cheerful on a winter day,than a bouquet of brightly roses.
I had seen some pictures of roses in the snow,so I had to try my hand at this.
The sun was shining and it was so nice to be able to be outside and have fun with my cameras.
I have many more images of the roses and no doubt over time I will be posting more of them.
Thought for Today:
If we had no winter,the spring would not be so pleasant;
if we did not sometimes taste adversity,
Prosperity would not be so welcome.
