Icy and Sleet
This morning with great determination I went outdoors three times to take photographs of the ice. The final time I did wear a coat as the sleet snow is falling fast and the wind is stronger. The air I know does enter into how well pictures will turn out. I am not a trained photographer nor have I studied the skill beyond trying to figure out a camera. I have been given good instructions from a photographer on how to use one of my cameras. Alas, that doesn't carry over to everything else. And that will send this person outdoors more than once in lousy weather to retake pictures that don't turn out as well as they look on the LCD camera screen. For example, the photo above is one out of about a dozen on two sessions. If there wasn't so much sleet on the ground, and I was younger as in not afraid of falling, then I would have walked right under that branch instead of using the zoom.
