Rain & Snow on Spring Blossoms

April 2 and a snow storm!

I got these pictures with a Nikon1 V1 before the rain turned to snow!

The apricot trees are blooming as well as the Nectarine, Cherries, Plums and some Apple trees. With a snow storm at this late date the blossoms are often frozen, which means another year of no fruit. That is life in the high desert at 7000 ft, in New Mexico! BUT it is a wonderful place to live, and a very popular place to visit as we are only 35 miles from Santa Fe, once voted the most desirable place to visit in the world by Conde Nast. Happy Spring to you, and very soon Happy Easter!

Happy New Year from Pasadena!

Happy New Year!
Windy and Cold here–Sunny CA yes but—also can get cold—Not quite this cold!


OOPS the Snowman was made in WA last week! Lemon tree in Pasadena.

The Tournament of Roses Parade is Tomorrow! Can’t wait to see it!

Snow!

Beautiful snow today, but didn’t get to take any photos!

By the way– Have any of you ever used the Cotton Carrier? www.cottoncarrier.com
A great way to carry the camera on hikes or cross country skiing: leaves your hands free, and the camera (Nikon D3) snug against your body. Hope to try it out this weekend with the skis!

Another great selection of camera carrying equipment comes with the Think Tank system. www.thinktankphoto.com
I have used each of the various belts at different times with and without the harness, to attach the camera (Nikon D3) and various sized bags as needed. Rain covers come with each bag, and have come in very handy while traveling/ hiking in rainy areas.
