I have the wonderful entertainment factor of having these wild turkeys strutting around through autumn and winter. We usually see them more in the autumn, but I guess our relatively mild winter has kept them around. Don’t be fooled by the snow on the ground – it melted almost as fast as it fell down.
I’ve been trying to capture these guys on camera for a while now and I finally got my chance a few days ago. Everytime I had my camera with me, they were nowhere to be found, and everytime I saw them, my camera was nowhere near me. But they couldn’t elude me forever, and here are some of the shots I took – hope you enjoy!
Although today is gray and overcast, we’ve been very lucky that the past 10 days or so have been beautiful winter days. Crisp and cold, but with a stunning blue sky and a lovely winter glow over everything. It’s perfect weather for invigorating walks and ideal for taking pictures, which I did more than happily.
I’ve already shared some of those on my previous post, but that one had a specific theme. Today’s collection is just a random compilation of some of the wonderful sights I got to enjoy.
My last post was pretty negative about the whole situation with the snowstorm, since the blackout was definitely not very fun. But having a snowstorm in the middle of autumn also provided some beautiful and astonishing scenery. It was very unexpected to see flashes of gold, red, yellow and orange peeking out through the white carpet that covered every branch, leaf and patch of grass. Obviously I couldn’t help but take lots of pictures, so I figured I’d share some of them with you, to share the good side of the snowstorm too.
Hope you enjoy and please feel free to comment or share any of your pictures.
