Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 23

Sunday Afternoon Drive.

The weather was warm today - above 0C, and everyone was out enjoying the sunshine.

Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 22

Barely Today.

I stayed up last night trying to take some moon pics. The atmospheric distortion was really bad, and I was not very successful. Taken just after midnight, this was one of the best - saturation increased to show the colour under all the moon dust...

Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 20

Sunset from my Kitchen Window.

I would rather not have all the wires, etc in the shot. But the colour was so amazing I just had to capture it.

Staying in the Now.

My mini zen garden at the office. The stones, etc, are about the size of my thumbnail...

A Waste of Money.

"I would rather train a striped zebra to balance an Indian club than induce a dachshund to heed my slightest command. - E.B. White"

This is all that's left of the $45 dollars that dropped out of my wilfe's pocket this morning as she ran out the door. Our amazing dachshund, Cricket, decided to eat it.

Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 17

Winter Afternoon.

This lovely scene is the "glass half full" perspective of the day. We got over 2 feet of snow yesterday, making today a total mess - no buses, 1/2 the staff couldn't get into the office, we got stuck in the driveway and then again in the street! The snowfall broke records, and I'm ready for spring already... (I was actually lucky to get this shot when I did, because in the evening the wind began to gust, and all the snow fell off the trees.)

Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 16

Crazy Cat.

In the middle of the night my cat, Auto, sometimes goes insane. We say the fairies are bugging him - he suddenly cries and runs and jumps on the furniture and tries to climb the drapes! Here he was, at 2am, on top of the bookcase. Look at how dilated his eyes are! It isn't dark in the room!

Piling Up.

Every day, same song - different verse. More snow.

A colleague had a birthday last week, and her office was decorated for the occasion.

Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 11

Moving Me.

Up yesterday, and back today. It was great to get above the clouds and take in the blue sky - on the ground it's been snow and more snow...

Sunrise at 20,000 Feet.

I flew up to Ft. Nelson on a quick overnight trip for work. The sunrise was stunning, and I was very glad to catch it.

Continued Snowfall Warning.

We had a massive dump through the night and most of today. I didn't even get out of the house - this was taken through the window of my front door.

A Mix of Sun and Cloud.

It was supposed to snow today, but all we got was dark clouds and slushy pavement. In late afternoon the sun peeked out, looking something like this...

Project 365 2.0 ~ Day 4


First day back to really working after having a breather over the holidays - too busy to get out with the camera, so stayed in the office and smiled...

Up the Hill...

Today was warm and sunny, and it seemed half the town was sledding in the park.

Starting Over.

Fist day of my 2nd Project 365. The calendar is one I made, with photos I took in 2010. Completes the circle, eh?

Looking @ 2010 ~ Week 52

And the year ends as it begins - with sunshine and snow. Frozen Radar Lake is currently serving as ice rink and snow mobile drag strip. But all was quiet on this afternoon just past Christmas.

Looking @ 2010 ~ Week 51

The lunar eclipse last night was a once in a lifetime occurrence, and and I decided I couldn't miss it. It was very cold - minus 25C before the wind chill, and I went through 3 batteries. At the end my tripod was frozen, my remote froze, and my focus ring didn't want to work. But I got some good shots, and today my 50D is none the worse for wear....

I now have this barn in every season...

Gold and Silver...
The office is in full holiday mode, and the decorations are lovely. The manager suite has a lovely tree decorated in gold and red. It really is beautiful, and feels very festive.

This white tree with blue ornaments is in the conference room.

Looking @ 2010 ~ Week 49

I received a tiny tree from my Secret Santa this week - only 8 inches tall, with ornaments half the size of ping pong balls. The only thing I could do was pull out the macro lens!

Looking @ 2010 ~ Week 48

The sunset was amazing this afternoon, and I didn't have my Canon 50D with me. I took these with my iPhone 4, using the Pro HDR app. I ran them through my noise reduction software, and resized them, but that was all the post processing I did. I can't make fun of camera phones anymore!

Colour in the sky - buttermilk clouds at sunset on November 24, followed by a morning moon still visible at 9am, November 25.

The colour has faded to black and white outside, but flowers are still blooming in my office. A colleague received a bouquet and I grabbed my macro lens.

Looking @ 2010 ~ Week 44

From the date of the last photo (taken at the beginning of week 43) to the date of this photo (at week 44's end) the rain has given way to snow and ice and the temperature has plunged us into winter. But the hoar frost is beautiful, don't you think?

Last cold rain before the snow sets in. If you look closely, you can see that the rain water is frozen on the last remaining leaf...

As the earth turns from yellow and orange to brown and gray, the moon still provides the chance for capturing it's beauty.

Looking @ 2010 ~ Week 40

The leaves have turned and are falling quickly. Autumn in the north is primarily yellow, as the poplar trees outnumber all other deciduous trees by about 10 to 1...
