03.24.2020 I think it’s Tuesday

I’ve only been in to work on days when nobody else will be around.  Labor distancing, I guess, for almost two weeks.  It’s become so I am not sure of the day any more so have to look down in the corner of the display to figure that out. I guess this is what retirement is like except for the restrictions placed upon us.  All non-essential businesses are closed in MA and we’ve been asked to keep our distance from each other, no large group gatherings…which suits me fine all the time…and stay in house unless necessities are needed.  We can go for a walk in  the woods so I’ll do that as much as possible while also taking time to catch up on things and maybe get the gardens going once the snow has melted.

I found one more from the great time I had at Harvard Pond on March 1st. Don’t know how I overlooked this.  I only made two exposures and liked this the better for having the bright overcast light on the leaf.

When out this morning with Bentley at 3:30 it appeared that a lot of the snow has left the trees.  The temperature has hovered around 32°F most of the night so there has been melting which I assumed having heard the dripping in the downspout when I got up.  The hills may still have their coating though.

  1. This image has mostly separate halves: the top dominated by the leaf, the bottom by the rows of bubbles that I conceive as a cluster of eggs.

  2. Lovely shot, Steve. Very nice colours and textures.

  3. This is beautiful. Nature photography is by its very nature a solitary experience; thus we are fortunate — or at least less unfortunate.

    • I was made for nature photography, I guess, being a bit antisocial as I am. I felt a little guilty about going out and enjoying nature while my co-workers were all still at work. But now that everything non-essential is closed , which includes furniture stores, I feel more free. Unfortunately, the last two days have not been very favorable for capturing light when combined with dirty melting snow and bare everything. But the important thing is staying healthy.

    A beauty, Steve. And I lose time as well, and walk in my forest. It’s OK.

    Our days of seeing frozen images is long gone here in Oklahoma, but what a beauty you’ve presented today. Ice images are fascinating. It would be interesting to see formulations in slow motion.

    ‘Tiny Bubbles!” The colors even make me think of champagne! 😉
    We had 7″ here this morning. I was surprised, after months of small amounts, to get that much. Half is gone already, it’s melting quickly.

    • Ho, Ho, Don Ho sang for us about these, didn’t he? 🙂

      I had thought of coming up your way but opted for New Salem and North Quabbin. It was disappointing. Most had melted and wasn’t the least photogenic, IMO anyway. It was disappointing but did make scraping the driveway a little easier.

  7. Beautiful! I love the bubbles under the ice and the leaf is beautiful. 🙂

    Beautiful interplay of–and contrast between–the warm leaf tones and the cool ones of the ice & bubbles!

    • Thanks, Gary. The leaf really makes this beyond just a shot of the bubbles. And I was happy to see a little sunlight hit the leaf. Ordinarily I’d rather that not happen because of contrast but it works nicely here, I think.

    This time period would probably be hell for hard core extroverts. Fortunately I’m an introvert, and strangely enough I think a majority of WordPress bloggers are as well. Who’d think folks who are happier avoiding crowds would publish thoughts and pictures to the world?

    I like the juxtaposition of the warm fall colors with the ice bubbles.

    • Well, speaking just for myself…there’s no eye contact. LOL

      This has been harder on Mary Beth as she is much more socially active than I, taking part in church events, exercise for seniors group, and various MS activities. Work is probably my most social experience although I have become a better neighbor.

      The warmth does go well with the ice and I was attracted to the mingling of the two main subjects. Thanks, Dave.
