SUMMER ODDBALLS IN WINTER’S COLD

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: January 21, 2018


“Antique” wires along the road. I have some kind of “thing” about wires. Everyone else seems to be trying to erase them. I’m trying to capture them.

To be fair, it isn’t nearly as cold today as it was a week ago … and almost all the remains of the last snow have melted to nearly nothing. As winters go, so far, so good.

I haven’t been out much. I’ve taken a few pictures. Posted many of them. What I have been doing is opening up folders from times when I took a lot of pictures but didn’t get around to processing them. These are all from a few years ago. Not newly shot, but newly completed in the sense that I just processed them. I was surprised at how much better they are than I remembered.

I’m pretty sure this is some kind of forage crop. We saw fields and fields of it, but there was no one around to ask what crop it is. If you recognize it, let me know.

I think there is a beaver in this pond, but I can’t find him. Lots of ducks, though.

Of course — why not? I’m still using the same lenses, though the cameras have been upgraded and no matter how great the camera is, no one’s pictures are any better than the glass on the camera.

  1. If the dam is still in good repair, the beaver is probably still there. Great pictures.

  3. They’ve been making those round cylinder bales for some time here. They’re really quite heavy.

  4. Good oddballs. Hay bales have changed over the years with compact shapes
