Well, that went fast

(Nov 14 2:20 p.m.)

The first snow of the season, here, melted quickly.  Turns out you don’t need many daylight hours for most of the white stuff to evaporate.

Tire tracks. (Nov 13 4:52 p.m.)

This is what it was like the night before.  It wasn’t deep enough to warrant shoveling, but the coating was a thick enough to paint the town white.  At least for a short while.

(Nov 13 4:44 p.m.)

Double exposure in the process of HDR can produce some interesting effects… A car’s brake light stands out — one exposure has the car / light / shadow; the next, no car.

(Nov 13 4:40 p.m.)

Low-light conditions start to get pretty grainy with phone cameras. It’s a consequence of the physical size of the camera “retina” (besides the fact that semiconductors are used); the smaller the pixels, the fewer the photons can be picked up, hence noise. (Professional cameras have physically larger pixel sensors.)

(Nov 13 4:53 p.m.)

Sort of a Chex mix/Crispix pattern with the trees over the red wagon.

But this story doesn’t end there.  Tuesday, I took the opportunity to revisit the path near our house.  Can you believe it’s been a year since I first began to explore that area?

(Nov 14 2:29 p.m.)

It’s no wonder I heard chainsaws after the storm.

Stumps. (Nov 14 2:29 p.m.)
(Nov 14 2:31 p.m.)

It something else, to see patches of snow on a landscape of brown leaves.

Crisp. (No -ix.) (Nov 14 2:31 p.m.)

And those crisp leaves you only see through the colder months.  (Click a photo to enlarge.)

(Nov 14 2:31 p.m.)

Sometimes, I think, hey I could do NaBloPoMo. And then, the ideas and unplanned events run out, which turns the abbreviation into: No.

(Nov 14 2:34 p.m.)

With all the dropped branches from the winds went the bucket.

(Nov 14 2:36 p.m.)

Hopefully, my life path will develop in the coming months…

(Nov 14 2:46 p.m.)

The iPhone camera does a fairly good job with these scenes.  The green skies (partly due to UV pickup), I don’t appreciate so much.

(Nov 14 2:50 p.m.)

The neighbors have apparently been using that small area with the collapsed table (old summer resting area?) to store cut branches and logs.

(Nov 14 2:50 p.m.)
(Nov 14 2:53 p.m.)

Our own branch pile back home also takes on a different look with the snow.

Well, that’s it for now.  There’ll always be more ahead, but now I must rest my weary… head.

Until next time…

That old beer can now has a leaf on it. (Nov 14 2:41 p.m.)
