Yesterday we had our first warm day in what seems like forever. Temps “soared” to almost 50F/10C so even though it was cloudy out, I decided to take advantage of the warmth and take a walk out into the woods behind our house to get some different shots for today’s Tree Love post. However, I didn’t take into account the mushy gushy snow sitting on top of ice, which made it difficult to cross the yard without feeling like I’d be pressing my luck by traipsing down the steep hill. So instead I decided to err on the side of caution and walked down to take pictures of the trees along the driveway.
Back when I was a regular participant of @tattoodjay‘s Wednesday Walks, I took many photos as I meandered down the driveway, so a familiar subject and a grey day (despite the springlike temps) made it a bit challenging to find shots I thought were post worthy. But after taking nearly 70 photos, I managed to find 20 that I thought did justice to all the amazing trees we have on this property (although I still don’t know most of their names – one of these days I’ll get to researching about them… but today is not that day…lol).
And while I didn’t want to jinx anything when I mentioned it in my last Thursday Tree Love post, I think it’s safe to say that my new camera battery is working very well. I walked around for almost 45 minutes taking the aforementioned 70 shots, and the battery lasted without any issue. Which means, as long as the weather cooperates, I might be able to get a gazillion or two captures of the upcoming Full Snow Moon on Saturday – keeping my fingers crossed!
Before I get on with the pictures, thanks, as always, to my WordPress blogging friend Parul for hosting this awesome blog hop every couple of weeks. If you want to join in the Tree love blog hop fun, it’s really easy – here’s the description from her latest post today, called #ThursdayTreeLove – 104
Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on this blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on March 11, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell me where did you spot the tree and link it back to this post.
If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. Please make sure that your post’s link is showing up on this latest edition. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.
Last thing – these were taken in my Durham, NH yard earlier yesterday, using my my Nikon affixed to my tripod, then resized and cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey.
