Week 7 (February 12 - February 18, 2015)

The week was wet and cold - not very conducive to getting out and about. Instead, for this weeks photo's, I just sat in the kitchen and shot through the window at birds in the trees, the garden, and at the feeders. Took quite a few so will probably post some in the Member's Showcase.

A pine siskin and a goldfinch with an incoming siskin that managed to insert itself into the photo just as I snapped the shot. Would have been nice if it had been in focus, too.

A nice set of shots there Martha, you've been very busy and getting that camera working. :D
Cheers,
Paul.

Week 8 (February 19 - February 25, 2015)

The last day of the week it began to snow. By the next day when it stopped, 10 inches had fallen at my house.

Nice shots. If you'd like to have our snow too, I'd love to send it to you! I'm so ready for it to be over.

Thanks for the offer, Tom. But, I think I'll pass on it, Lord be willing. The snow did not last more than two days, which was fine with me. Being northern born and raised, I do like the beauty of new fallen snow so am glad that once every year or so we get a little bit down here. All the more so because it rarely lasts longer than a day or two, especially since I do live near the top of a hill with a very long driveway which means that I don't even attempt to go anywhere until things melt.

Martha, I am just catching up on some of the 52s posted here. I really like your trestle shots. Particularly the 2nd and 4th ones showing the pattern of "beams" as the retreat into the distance. :thumbup:

As for the snow, well you can keep it :D . We have had a relatively mild winter here in the western part of the Great White North which really hasn't been that white this winter. My first post in my 52 showed some snow, but I had to go west towards the mountains to find it. :)

Week 9 (February 26 - March 4, 2015)

Somehow I have managed to get behind on my posting. When I left off with week 8, the snow was falling. By the next morning 10 inches had fallen transforming the area into a winter wonderland. Fortunately, unlike in the north, within two days the snow was all gone.

After taking some early morning photos, the next thing I did was make a snowman (hard to take the child out of this old lady). The biggest I have made since moving south over 25 years ago (could have made it bigger, but I didn't want to have to do any heavy lifting.) Of course, then I had to set up a tripod and take a selfie.

It would have been nice if it only stuck around for a couple of days here too. It did finally melt off and I think/hope we are done 'til next winter.

Martha, these images look great. I have had a gutful of the aussie heat and yearn for these sorts of conditions... Lucky you.
