CALM. (31/01/16)

Yesterday consisted of a series of snow showers. The snow is still around today and I have some video from yesterday that needs editing. The editing takes no time at all but I enjoy making the titles which takes me hours.
This morning we have enjoyed a long walk and came back through the swamp. It does look a bit depressing and it is, no sunshine and a low cloud base making for very flat light. Tomorrow we have another storm forecast. They name our storms and I wish they would stop as it seems to encourage them._MG_2608

Let us hope for some good crisp weather during February.

  1. Nature can't decide what weather to provide for you. Isn't it good to get outdoors to walk?

    1. John, it is far too mild for my taste. Far too wet as well.

  3. I like the last photo with the perspective and reflections creating their own light and shadow.

  4. Since we've been giving wind a name it's all got worse. Another dumb idea we've copied from America.
    The swamp looks interesting.

    1. Keith, the swamp is just a bit of flooding. Not even a mallard has swum on it.

  5. Yes, that last one is a super shot. Both of us have been laid a bit low by some sort of creeping crud--- I'm mostly OK now, But Laura is still mending. We're anxious to get OUT!

  6. When we have been round the alphabet a couple of times we might arrive at Storm Adrian. This will be a particularly vicious storm with powerful wind, raging thunder and spitting rain. Homes will be devastated and there will be widespread flooding bringing misery to thousands. At least that is how I imagine it. How about you?

    1. YP, I don't want a storm of any magnitude named after me. Naming storms is a silly idea.

  7. I quite like that last image, Adrian. Very pretty.

  8. I think the idea behind naming of storms is for the storms to register in the public consciousness on two levels, 1)to take note of weather warnings 2)so when brainiacs start carping on about climate change they can point out the changes in the weather patterns, time will tell I guess if it's a good thing.
    Really enjoyed the wintry feel to the images Adrian

    1. Douglas, it is difficult to take weather warnings seriously when they dole them out like Smarties. The next time they really mean there will be cars and trucks stuck on the A9 as few do heed them until the snow gates shut.

    1. Thanks Francis. No I'm still spending a few hours a day Blendering. I could post but as there is little to no interest I keep it to about a post a week.

    1. Orvokki, than you. There is not much to photograph here at the moment it is dull and dark.
