Aw, winter months! The world looks far different when it’s covered in white and cold.
Taken with my cell phone on a morning after after a long night at work.
Remy and Storm.
Remy is our resident flirt and Storm was our “big dog” for 15 years. She wasn’t a jump on the couch when we were there, but she did like to stick her nose up over the edge and give you “that look”.
This is Emerson. Emerson has the best smile.
2016 brought me back to New Mexico, a job fell through, and back I went. Not to northern NM, but more south.
So this guy! I was staying at an RV site, what had tiny cabins (awesome deal, btw!!) – and caught a glimpse of something behind my car before taking off for a day of exploring. You got it – a peacock!
Space museum – a cool afternoon, and a wicked looking building – the reflection was great! I never got around to going there at sunset.
Some hiking pics – an old 1800s train track – and the Carlsbad Caverns (which was cool!)
My romantic wife sent me flowers and, of course, that I had to take a picture.
This is the best of my February’s. It’s interesting to see what I was doing in Feb of each year. Sometimes there are no pictures from certain months, and sometimes to many to pick from!
It was not often that Storm got onto the couch, usually when I wasn’t home!
I had just gotten my “newer” lens. A wider angle that was used – but worked astonishingly well.
In 2015 I began working as a traveling PTA with Alegiant Healthcare – and its taken me many different places. Colorado, Mass, all over Maine, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico. Which is where these were taken, at the White Sands in Alamogordo. The door handle is from the Ekland Hotel and Clayton, NM
Maine! I spent a year in Deer Isle/MDI area.
Someone suggested to me to make a “best of” my photos. I have to be honest, that’s a LOT of pictures. So I’ll be doing this every last day of the month (if I can). I went all the way back (as far as I have saved) and rummaged around in my January folders.
Stormy, on the couch, where she shouldn’t have been!
My first time in Deer Isle, while working at the nursing home – I was there a short time – 9 weeks or so, but it’s a place I’ll definitely want to go back to again and again.
Snow Storms from HELL!
My 2nd time in Deer Isle (I just realized I spent two winters there in the last 3 years). So many pictures to pick from – but these are my faves.
You never know what you’ll find right in front of your face – I opened the door and – oh, wonder what that will look like up close
More of that sea fog, or mist, or – damn it, it’s cold!
Turkey! I never noticed the cool colors on these guys. This one below is cruising – check out the fly of snow at his feet. My friend, Ricky, told me to “bring him some!”
This is over in Blue Hill – near reversing falls – it’s totally frozen over – brrrr!
For weeks! I’d been passing this “crate Christmas tree”. First it was snowing, then it was cloudy, another day the sun was to low – but then, finally! Voila! Sun topper!
Then the next morning – this phenomenoun known as “sea fog” is what a patient called it – began – why, cuz it was so DARN COLD!!! 25 below. I mean, when the ocean freezes, that’s saying something, right?
Then a cold sunset! I hit up one place – not sure what cove its called (Weed or Webb, not sure!)
I bent down to pick up that lil sliver of GREEN sea glass (see it!) and thought – oh – frozen seaweed… what will look like up close…..
Echo didn’t not seem happy that I was leaving that afternoon. She was giving me those puppy dog eyes.
There was a weird, almost ethereal light on x-mas even – hard to capture at times.
Berries and snow!
On the drive up to the lake, that lovely light kept teasing me to take pictures.
So hard to get that sun flair!
