What happens when I forget to take a picture until late at night.

Around the house
Here’s our backyard tree. I still have no idea what it’s name is. It’s getting ready to bloom. Hopefully when it does the monarch butterflies come back like last year and I can photograph them again (My watermark was created by outlining that landed on this tree last year)

Squirrels and birds have been digging in the garden. The lilacs are getting ready to bloom he aspens have leaves and the tree in middle of the yard is attempting to grow a new branch

Our Back yard

More cold. More snow. Last night’s snow was a little wetter than we have been having lately so it was sticking to the trees.
Last night when I took the Sam out before going to bed I was amazed at much light was reflecting off the snow. It was a little past midnight I grabbed my tripod and shot from inside my kitchen. I spot metered for the snow that was on the ground. There was an orange-y color cast so I converted them to black and white. Check out those shutter speeds (just hover the mouse over the pictures for exposure info)
This morning/early afternoon the wind hadn’t blow the snow off the trees yet so I took a few more pictures. It was semi-overcast and I tried to meter for the sky.
I was about to try to shoot one more picture with the sun peeking out from directly behind a branch when a clump of snow fell directly on my head and splattered a few drops on my lens and body. I just know that picture would have been perfect 😛
