All right, I've been slacking off the last few days.  We've had some beautiful morning skies, which I normally don't have a chance to take photos of.  I made it home from the dog walk the other day in time to grab some photos.


Swirly sky

Then it snowed.  The first time in almost two years!

Fortunately it was my day off, so I didn't have to worry at all about going in to work.  The roads weren't too bad, mostly it was slush.  I was glad it snowed, and glad it went away fairly quickly.

We drove past one of my favorite decorations here in town - Santa held captive!  He's been strapped to this chimney every year since at least 2007 (when I took this first photo of him).

Good heavens!  They're holding Santa captive, and he's strapped to their chimney!

I'd hate to see what they do to him the rest of the year...

Wow, the 1st is your own photograph?

No editing other than "sharpening" in iPhoto! I learned a trick a long time ago that when you have low light and spin the camera after you take the picture, you can get these cool circles with the slower shutter speed.

And the colors were just amazing that morning!

I like it even more then!
I am just preferring less editing, so VERY nice!
