Monthly Archives: November 2014

It’s officially started

Here we go, again; a couple of weeks of abnormally cold weather, and then this … about a month earlier than last year:

I was expecting an El Niño winter this year … that’s an unusually warm winter, here … but it seems to have petered out, and we’re gonna get a long, cold one, again. I dunno … we’ve just barely recovered from the last one.
I understand Lake Superior is beginning to freeze over, and there’s 18″ of powder on the local ski slopes.

Sigh!
Cheers, all …

A Few odds and Ends from the Last Month or so …

Not much on any especial theme, or anything like that, but when one carries a camera, one finds pictures. They call themselves to one’s attention, now and then, so they get downloaded, and the better ones get published, as here.
Not much commentary … here they are:
A couple of shots on a cloudy day, shot from the roof of the local hospital:

And a couple of shots in the hospital itself:

I was fascinated by all these angles in the stairway area, contrasting with the traditional architecture of the tower, a block away:

And, on another day, as I was sitting in the car down by the water, a few things called themselves to my attention …

Perhaps a little explanation is in order here; this vessel is, according to my best estimate, about 25 miles offshore … the ability to use the full 504mm of this camera’s zoom lens allowed me to make this shot. I’ve done very little cropping; here’s the full frame, no crops, no corrections:

And a few details of the local area:

Well, there you have it … or them … anyway, take ’em for what they’re worth … enjoy!
Cheers, all!
