01.06.2022. Yet again, the Ride to Work

Sometimes being late is an advantage. I got halfway to work and realized that I had left my keys at home so turned around and went back for them. That made the timing just right for my first shot with the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

When I got home I made another.

Bentley knows there’s snow a comin’.

  2. Your iPhone did a good job in balancing the bright sky and the foggy woods.

    Great way to break in a new phone. And a great combo of photos! 🙂 The snow caught us off guard down here, shut down the area for most of this week. I’ve never seen such wet and heavy snow the entire time I’ve lived here, trees and power lines down everywhere, highways shut down and folks trapped in their cars for 14 to 20 hours. Crazy. I’m not the most adventurous individual so it’s kept me from going out looking for photo ops, not to mention most of the parks I visit have been closed. Might take them a while to clear the downed trees from their roads.

    • That was an awful storm and of course folks in your area wouldn’t expect anything like that and most were not likely prepared or experienced in dealing with such things. You were wise to stay indoors although I hope that you will get out before its all gone and take advantage. I am about to get out there despite the 12° temperature. After weeks of 30’s and 40’s it’s a bit of a challenge to deal with it so we’ll see how long I last.

        You’re absolutely correct about us not being prepared or knowing how to deal with it. They told folks to stay home but many didn’t and ended up stranded. Seems the snow came down so fast they couldn’t keep roads clear and it started as rain so pre-treating the roads wouldn’t work. My father and I took a drive today. Decided to drive an hour and half away to a park that didn’t get hit by the first big storm earlier in the week so they were open. It was nice walking around on snow covered trails for a least a little while. I hope you enjoy your time out! 12° is certainly a bit cold. 🙂

    Even the clouds look foggy in this one. On the other hand, Bentley’s not at all foggy; he’s exhibiting a clear-eyed appreciation for his blanket and chair.

    • He’s the ultimate slumber hound. We get up around 3, he goes out,then eats, and then it’s back under the covers for a few hours before he moves the sofa. If I sit on the recliner he joins me then declarers it for himself if I get up. Dinner and then back in bed for the night.. Seems a good plan for these cold winter days.

    I love this shot of the early morning glow, an excellent excuse for being late for work.

    Delightful photo of the morning’s greeting, Steve, with the exquisite clouds and colors, and forest mist. And both photos do a good job of capturing the frigidity of the day. Lucky Bentley.

    Bentley is a smart boy! Your on-the-way-to-work photo is well captured! I love the warm colors of the sky next to the neutral, colder colors of the trees and ground plants. Nice!

    Bentley has the right idea – although that sky is worth being up and about for!

    It’s a dog’s life – and sometimes, a photographer’s, too. 🙂

  11. Nice! Seems you often be a good chance of catching a great sunrise your way to work! Bentley is cute. We have a 14 year old Welsh Terrier who likes his blanks too!

    • It’s a nice meadow that was recently protected. Several attempts to sell it for development didn’t pan out so fortunately a local preservation group purchased and it will stay open forever or at least for a few generations.There are a couple of other spots I pass by that offer nice sunrise views.

      We’ve had four beagles and each one has progressively become more attached to the comforts of our furniture. My first had to be alone all day after I rescued her from abandonment. A beagle stuck indoors deserves the run of things so they have all been allowed wherever they wished to be. Bentley has made an art of using his blanket for poses.
