Changing of the Seasons

December 28, 2009

Winter has arrived in northern Maine, and in a big way. It seems as though fall came and went in the blink of an eye, and even as the hills shimmer with new fallen snow I admittedly miss the colorful leaves and even more colorful brook trout of the past few months. The last week we have seen almost 25 inches of fresh snow, not to mention a good dousing of rain. You can imagine my excitement (I miss fishing).

Between the countless hours of shoveling, plowing, and cleaning the roofs I did manage to snap a few pictures of the fluffy stuff. It seems the new Olympus is going to take some getting used to before I can take photos even CLOSE to the ones I’ve been snapping with my Canon Rebel. Then again, the whole purpose of my new Stylus Tough 8000 is to have a stream side camera I’m not afraid to drop in the water or dunk for the occasional fish release picture. For now I’ll take a page out of Michael Gracie’s book and read the manual of my camera from front to back. Gotta love Christmas gifts!

A colorful fall afternoon…

And over two feat of snow…!

Winter 2009

Stay toasty, it’s going to be a long Winter.
