November 18 Snow Day-Flake3

November 18 Snow Day-Flake3, originally uploaded by NedraI.

We had a snow day today so of course that meant heading outside with the macro lens. There weren't a lot of good flakes but I did find a couple. :) We only had a few inches of snow but up where I teach there was 8-12 inches. A true lake effect storm. (Same flake just cropped in nice and close.)

Snow Clouds!

I had to stop on my way home to get a picture of the sunset. We've had some beauties lately. I like how you can see some snow coming out of the clouds. It snowed on and off all afternoon. The kids at school were excited. A kindergartner even asked if tomorrow was Christmas! :)

The setting sun on the dying plants was beautiful this afternoon. I was trying to clean the gardens out but these beauties will stay a little longer.

Today's snow did not last long at all.

I carved the pumpkin myself when I got home from school this year since no one else was around. It's your basic simple jack o' lantern face so I went for a macro shot in the studio once I brought it back inside for the night.

I went for a walk in the woods today. It was a lovely fall day and I enjoyed trying to capture the beauty.

Moose River Kayakers

This was the second year that I went up north with my husband to watch the kayakers come down the Moose River. Water is released from the Chain of Lakes in the Adirondacks and that results in some fun times for the kayakers. It was a miserable day for the spectators but the kayakers certainly didn't mind.
