That’s about the way that I see the early morning and early evening light in the winter time, milky. To me, it’s kind of like a light shining through water with a bit of milk mixed it, diffuse. As the suns rays are hitting the earth less directly, the shadows are longer, the light softer – it also means that I can shoot the “golden” light at about 3:00 PM, instead of waiting until 7:00 and getting the full-on assault…

If I’m being honest, I have to admit that I’m a middle of the book kind of guy as far as technical books go. I like to dive right in, figure the good stuff out, and then work my way through the book, using the index, to cover the bits that I need to know right now. I think that they might call that impatient, but I’m not sure. 😉 Rarely do I read a technical book, especially about cameras…

I, for one, will be glad to see the sun set later and later. I have a difficult time staying up during the late fall and early winter. Yesterday was the winter solstice. I took a moment to admire the sunset from my backyard, being grateful that in the coming days, it will be lighter outside a little bit longer each day. With that thought, I thought of a trip or two that I’d like to take. I’d like to…

Well, not quite correct, prognosticators! They had issued a winter storm warning and predicted 5 – 8 inches of snow. Maybe they should have said 5/8 of an inch – then they wouldn’t have been so far off in this neck of the woods where we got just a tad bit more than a dusting, certainly less than 5/8 of an inch! However, you have to give the news reporters props for trying. I watched a news report this morning…

Just so that you won’t worry, I’ve already made my trip to Walmart for milk and bread! I’m all set. I imagine that tonight, the grocery stores will be full of folks trying to get ahead of the approaching winter “storm”. It’s certainly will be a storm for us if we get the expected 5 – 8 inches of snow. But, I’ve seen, frequently, those forecasts change rapidly from, say 5 – 8, to less than 2 or so. At…

I knew what the winter solstice was, but until today, I didn’t know the Latin meaning, which is : The sun stands still. On our tilting journey, we now reached our furthest tilt away from the sun, 23.5 degrees. Our Aussie friends, and others in the southern hemisphere have hit their summer solstice. It’s our shortest number of hours of daylight, their longest. Now, the tilt heads the other way. To me, it’s all quite fascinating how the earth spins…
