Here’s the second set of snapshots from a snowy Sunday in New Hampshire – say that three times fast. LOL!
By popular demand (because two people asking means I’m popular, right?) I’m back with more of the over 200 shots I took on Sunday. For what it’s worth, now almost all the snow is completely gone, and I have no doubt it will completely disappear when beach weather arrives later today.
I was going to call this set, “Critters and Things” because while my post three days ago focused solely on landscape shots, this current crop also has birds and various items around the outside of our home. Hope you enjoy!
Oh, and before I forget – all of these shots (except one) were taken in my Durham, NH yard on February 18th, 2018 (8am-ish EST) with my trusty Nikon. The exception is the very last photo, which I took yesterday afternoon (also while out in my yard) for my blogging friend April who has been missing my monthly multitude of moon shots.
Nice sight to see when opening the front door first thing in the morning… NOT!
Our front light and Mr North Wind are wearing snow caps.
At least somebody is happy with the weather.
Everywhere I look, something is outlined in snow.
Good thing we left the windshield wipers up the night before (so they won’t stick to the windshield in the morning.
At least it looks pretty.
But how will we know which way the wind blows?
Speaking of wind, the gusts were blowing just hard enough to make it look like it was snowing again. Or maybe it was just the neighborhood fairies photo-bombing me.
See – that haze at the bottom of the trees is snow, not fog.
Mr Red-bellied Woodpecker was enjoying the view from the top of a very tall tree. And yes, I know it’s his head that’s red, not his belly – blame the silly bird people who named him!
Forget snowballs – we have snow parallelograms!
See the way the bottom branches of these two trees seem like they’re reaching for each other? I’ve always thought it looked like they’re holding hands.
I didn’t realize Mister RBW brought along Junior until I saw the shot on my computer. Initially I wasn’t even going to bother looking at the shot, because Mister almost jumped out of frame by the time I took the picture (they’re quick little buggers).
Speaking of not great shots – this isn’t one of my best, but I had to include this for sentimental reasons. Even though we live in the Seacoast area of NH, our house is pretty far inland, smack dab in the middle of cow country. In the almost six years we’ve been living in this house, I don’t ever recall seeing one of these ocean loving birds flying overhead. Given that I grew up in a seaside community (with
sky rats seagulls as far as the eye could see) this was an instant happy memory of my childhood home. Thanks, Universe – I needed that!
Now, speaking of happiness, there were a bunch of bluebirds (aka the bluebird of happiness) hanging out at the top of the trees, enjoying the morning sunshine.
“Look, Ma – no
Sandy was having so much fun plowing through the snow, that it was hard to get a clear shot of him. Next time, I gotta remember my camera also takes video… * forehead thwack *
Now, as I mentioned at the top of this post, this was taken on Tuesday, not Sunday, around 5pm. It’s a bit hazy, thanks to all the clouds scurrying by, but I promised April some moon shots. I plan to grab some full moon snaps on March 1st – stay tuned!
AMAZING photos again Traci. I LOVE that bird flying without wings! And the moon again!
Thank you, Miss Wicked Awesomesauceness!
Thank you for my moon shot :-).
Snow is beautiful, but I’m very glad that I’ve never encountered that much of it in my life.
I was woken up by seagulls this morning. There were two of them flying close to the house shouting at one another and they could not be ignored.
You’re very welcome, April!
As much as I complain about it, I can’t imagine living any place that didn’t have snow. If nothing else, it keeps life interesting – LOL!
Ahh, seagulls are so considerate, aren’t they? In the warm months,we have a few Phoebes who enjoy sitting on the back deck railing (right outside our bedroom window) whilst singing at the top of their little lungs as soon as the sun peeks up over the horizon. Good times.
Beautiful photos, Traci! That sky is so blue!
Thank you, Jo!
Sandy in the snow! The coolest (literally)!
LOL! Thanks, Alice!
Beautiful photos but hope we are through with the snow. I have a RBW in my backyard also. Love watching him.
They are so entertaining to watch! And yes, I’m done with it, but given that it snowed again today, it’s apparently not done with me. LOL
