    SIJ 31 - Never ending

    Not SIJ but shovelling snow in a snow storm - a never ending task. However, ours now has ended and SIJ is over.

    This SIJ is one camera one lens and I have been experimenting with my M8 and 28mm to try to get good close ups - achieved by cropping the image. Todays posting is such a crop - quite a large 100% crop - I will put the original image in "outakes"

    SIJ Day 18 - At the mouth of the river

    I liked the pastel sky and the light on the water. The local children often came and played here.

    Not much happening this morning - miserable day - misty and the morning temperature has increased from zero to 7 C degrees from yesterday. Done my duty for today - photographically speaking, that is!!!

    The sun came out while I was having lunch but by the time I got organized to go out it had disappeared. So another flat light photo.
