Rain and frostPosted: December 6, 2011
We’re on our third day of rain here in Ohio. That seems to be the pattern lately. A warm day or two, then three days of rain. The Bogs are turning into ponds and lakes.
It is not a good day to take photos outside. It is gray, wet, and chilly. You can almost float away on the mushy ground. Fortunately, I still have images from Saturday morning’s beautiful frost event and didn’t need to take the camera with me on my walk today.
I mentioned in my previous post that I found a surprise when I looked at some of the frost photos. I hope you can see it in the above two photos. It’s the bokeh. Not that the bokeh was a surprise, but that the sun hitting the frost turned it into colored lights. Very festive.
The colored lights show in the backgrounds of quite a few of the photos, but you’ll have to look for them. As always, you can click on any of the photos to see the slightly larger version.
I bet you’re wondering where I went on Sunday. M and I took a quick trip to Columbus to watch our oldest granddaughter perform in her dance school’s Christmas recital. She is brilliant and talented, of course. It was wonderful to watch her dance, and to be able to visit with her and her sister for a short while.
I can’t believe how quickly my granddaughters are growing up. I don’t know why I’m surprised since it seems as though the older I get, the faster time speeds by.
I have a birthday coming up. Tomorrow, in fact. I will celebrate at home tomorrow, and then again on Friday with family and friends. I’m looking forward to both celebrations.
Well, I think that’s about it from the Bogs for today. Thank you so much for dropping by and having a look at the lights. Mother Nature really does a good job of seasonal decorating, doesn’t she?
I’ll bring some gifts with me tomorrow so we can all celebrate. 🙂
