As I mentioned in my last Thursday Tree Love post, my camera (or should I say, my camera’s battery) has been a bit cranky as of late. And the light bit of snow that starting falling last night has been steadily drifting down all day, which given the fact I don’t have one of those fancy hoods for my lens, means that getting pictures of trees during snowy weather would be a bit challenging.
Good excuses for dipping into my archive of unpublished pictures, right?
Yeah, but also given that it’s not terrible cold out today (hovering around freezing, but without the nasty wind from earlier this week makes it feel downright balmy), and everything looks so pretty with the light fluffy stuff drifting down, I decided to give it a go. And I was rewarded with a couple dozen of shots before my Nikon died, thirteen of which I thought were post worthy.
After I charged my camera for a few, I decided to take a couple of short videos out my window so you can get a sense of how much it was snowing at the time, then I turned them into a gifs. I figured since there’s no audio, gifs would be a
lazier better way of sharing instead of videos that are only ten & eleven seconds long. 😝
Speaking of, I always find it interesting that when I take pictures while snow is falling (at least with my current camera) that the flakes don’t typically show up. Which leads me to a question for my photography friends – do you find the same thing happens, or is your camera capable of capturing snow/rain while it’s falling? I ask because my husband pointed out that instead of buying a new battery, we might be able to afford a new Nikon if our car repairs aren’t as bad as we’re expecting. On the off chance that happens, I’m pondering the possibility, but if I do, I want to make sure I can up my photog game at least a little, so I’m trying to come up with a list of things I’d like to be able to do.
At any rate (and before I forget) – thanks, as always, to 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 – 102
