After an afternoon of running errands, I pulled into our driveway and this is what I saw. The cottage was bathed in light, a wonderful golden late afternoon light that lit up the house. I let the dogs out, ran for my camera and got this shot. You can see my shadow in the foreground.
As you can see, the trees are bare, the gardens are gone for the year and we still have some leaves to rake. Last night, when I opened the door to let the dogs out before we went to bed, I saw snow flakes. We just had a light dusting, but this is our first for the season. There is something magical about the first flakes of snow. I had to call my husband, who is filming in New Orleans, to give him the news. I imagine it was hard for him to take in since he is enjoying the warm climate of the South. Here, on the other hand, it has become very cold – in the 30’s.
Since I am in the market for a new digital camera, and there are so many out there, I’d love to hear your suggestions. What camera do you use? My camera is very small and compact, but its several years old and I would like to get more detail in my photos, as well as an optical zoom lens. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
