These photos are from around my yard last Saturday, two days after the big snow. This day was sunny, with temps above freezing (barely), but there was still a lot of snow in the trees.
I caught the icicles when we left for a bit, and I’m glad I did. They were gone by the time we got home.
We got home at sunset, which made for some interesting photos. I took a walk around the yard, hoping to see something to take a photo of, and saw the sun refracting through bits of snow on the honeysuckle bush. (Again with the light outlines! 😀 )
I had the Daily Post Photo Challenge on my mind, “Home” being the topic of the week, so I just took a look at one of the squirrel nests in the crabapples. Lo and behold, there were several cedar waxwings flying around, and on closer inspection, there were a couple sheltering under the nest. I was able to sneak closer for a better angle, and then the sun came out! Just at the right angle to catch the birds well-lit!
I was happy with those shots, then I was going inside and noticed the snow in the backyard looked odd. It was shadowed strangely, and I could see that it looked bumpy. I zoomed in and saw they were like little craters! I still haven’t figured out exactly how that might of formed – maybe the holes were from falling clumps and the rims melted more slowly because they were more dense, who knows?
Anyway, I thought it looked like the moon’s surface, all cratery-like, so of course I took pictures!
Went out today and got some more photos. I didn’t think the snow would still be here this long, but I got some interesting shots. They may come tomorrow!
