THE CHANGING SEASONS – FEBRUARY 2018

As February is ending, it is time for another “Changing Seasons” post. I haven’t gotten the alert, but I’ve been doing this for two years, so I don’t have a problem doing it again.

It has been a truly dull month for photography. A little bit of snow, a lot of rain. Some very warm, shirtsleeve weather, then a little more snow. February and March are the two most erratic months for weather in this region.

February is often the worst month for blizzards and really heavy snow and just because the month is almost over, it’s much too early to stow your winter gear.

This is one of those weird months where it feels like any number of seasons. Today was springtime. I was outside taking pictures in my dress. Not even a sweatshirt. Garry went out in a hoodie and felt he was overdressed.

But tomorrow, we’re expecting a few inches (more? less?) of snow.

A chilly gray day

I have not taken many pictures this month. Everything has been boringly grey or mud brown, with a little snow occasionally to brighten it up. Not very exciting for a photographer.

But — some months are not terribly interesting. I’m just grateful we didn’t get three feet of snow!

  1. My favourite capture is the close up of your indoor plant’s flower? You’ve made it so magically translucent! What kind of flower is it?

    • Thank you. It actually IS translucent, but getting that in the picture is a bit tricky because I need to shoot into the light, but not directly … sort of “off angle.” I had a great blossoming of that Christmas Cactus this year, so I had a lot of chances to play with lighting. Towards the end, I think I finally got what I was trying to get. It’s also tricky to get the translucency without losing the color 😀

  2. It’s a gorgeous day here and I can see a change in the season in your photos too.
    Hopefully the worst is over.

  3. Season will start to change here soon. It will be the first Spring that I can not attend to things early on as I usually do. Things will have to grow right where they are and it is unlikely I am planting anything this year. We are still eager for Spring anyway.

  4. I discovered today that the sun did not actually explode a week ago, and that it is possible to go outside and not get wet. If this weeklong monsoon had been snow, we’d have been digging out until May…

  6. I could do with a good blizzard (3′ please) and snowed in 3+ days with my teen so we can hang out and be silly!! ⛄❄

  7. I love the frog in his white winter blanket, and the ‘snow shadow’ of the table on the patio (Aussie for deck) 😉

    Glad to see your Christmas cactus doing so well 🙂 … and that you’ve got some sunshine in between the cold grey bits.
