This week the Sunday Stills challenge was Macro. I thought this would be hard and then mother nature gave us a another winter storm. Winter Storms in Fayetteville, North Carolina are not a common thing. In fact our temps have been mighty cold and 10-15 degrees below normal. My favorite shot is a close up of an icicle that was hanging from a small cow wind chime. I don’t think I’ve ever looked so close at an icicle. I can remember breaking them off when I was a kid and melting it in my mouth for water between sledding or snowball fights. Between shoveling snow and throwing out ice melt for the freezing rain that was heading our way, I hauled out the camera and tripod. The second shot is a branch with what appear to be buds under the ice. It kind of looks like an alien from some movie. The third shot is a similar branch on the same tree. The storm and ice were pretty bad, it even caused a water main to bust that affected us too. We are boiling water for drinking until some time Sunday afternoon. Lost power last night, but only for about an hour and a half. Needless to say, the dogs hated it, hard to play on the ice. Snow – yes, ice – no. We got in some fireplace time, good movies and plenty of food. Even found time for a nap or two.
Keep A Smile On Your Face and stay warm.
