    Default Fri. 13th Walk


    Last week the kids were off all week, but the weather was crappy until Fri. Took the dogs on a long walk on a sunny day.

    We found a few of these.


    A dead meadow. It's been sprayed and will be plowed for corn shortly.


    Found along side.




    And this is how far along we are into spring here.

    Am I missing something, or are the last 2 images the same?

    1 and 4 are a bit over-detailed- they confuse the eye slightly but 2 and 3 are very good. 3 is rather interesting.
    Did I say something helpful/useful?

    Michael, thanks and it today the temps are soaring again. Soon be time to mow the grass..............grrrrr

    Ruth Thanks for looking and catching that. I did post the the same picture twice. Lack of proof reading skills I guess.

    akwildshots Thanks for looking and commenting. Welcome to the Zo. You have come to a friendly and sharing site. Am a little confused by this comment.

    1 and 4 are a bit over-detailed
    Granted #1 could be closer and more isolated, but #4 is showing a lane and a path to walk. How can it be over detailed?

    Again welcome to the Zo.

    I love the Wood Violets in the first one. They're a sure sign of spring.

    Thanks Monnie, for a spring that bolted from the starting gate, it sure has slowed it's pace. Frost this morning.

    Our spring has also stalled somewhat no rain and high temperatures in March and ever since the water company imposed water restrictions after 2 fairly dry winters, we've had rain every day and it is cold enough to have put the heating back on.Perhaps the rest of your spring plants are hiding under the leaves to keep warm?

    Anyway,I really like the empty jars and think they would make for a really gritty B&W conversion Skippy.

    I like the jars and my fingers just itch to make them an HDR. That one would make a great print either as B+W as Karin suggests or as an HDR. ~~Peg

    Thanks Karin, Peg and Reddy. Wonder if I did a false hdr how would work. Maybe before it stops raining, I well get a chance to try. Should also go back. It's been almost two weeks and things have changed a lot.

    Spring has come to the south with a vengence, storms and lots of above average temps. Can you believe 105 degrees in Oklahoma already.

    I, for one, can't believe temps reach this high in your part of the world. Although summer, our temps are still much lower.

    I really love the jar shot. Great find. Our spring has slid into summer, it hit 92 degrees at my house today, sunny and HOT.

    Thanks Linda. It's been 25 here the last two mornings. Frost on the truck windshield. And flower buds on the apple tree..................Makes me wonder if they will open.
