Songs of Ice and Snow

The Magic Part of Yesterday

Sure, there were still thousands without power and the roads were treacherous part of the day. But the fluff that covered the ice coated trees and our spectacular crop of icy fluffed weeds sure were pretty.

And A Picture I Worried Almost Wasn't

After I took the previous pictures, it occurred to me that I wasn't sure I had corrected the time on the Nikon D1X. So I did. Then I took a few more. But those weren't in the directory when I copied files from the camera's CF card. What was wrong? The card had been seated -- I've got the D1X set to not fire if there's no memory card. And it wasn't full. And I had seen the previews on the camera's LCD panel...

So I searched the CF card for the next picture number -- and found it. I guess when I was tabbing through the menus, I must have bumped the up or down on the four-way control as I was passing by the year. The missing pictures were coded for 2012, not 2013. And I had copied the files based on date:
I:\NIKON2\D1X\13-DEC24>xcopy l: . /d:11-29-2013
So I missed them the first time.

Anyway, I pulled out my funny old Sigma 12mm f8 Fisheye and found a suitable frame for them.
