Still five hours left of 2012 for us here on the Atlantic time zone, as I’m writing this post, but in Australia they’ve already been in 2013 for nine, ten hours.
After yesterday’s storm, that dumped 25 centimetres of snow on Saint John [40 cm in other parts of the province], today turned out to be a brilliant day. The winds were beyond nippy … they were arctic, but I still managed to get a few photos that I’m quite happy with.
I’ve had this idea that I want to capture a Blue Jay in snow … perhaps because I want to recreate the image I have in my memory of the first time I ever laid eyes on a Blue Jay, back in 2003. Today, it happened. Shooting Blue Jays is pretty much a hit or miss, as they’re so skittish … in most of my shots,it has a peanut in its beak, so today I felt lucky.
This is my last post this year. I hope you all are having a nice and fun-filled New Years Eve! Very peaceful here, we’re just going to watch the ball fall on Times Square [even though we’re not on the same time zone]. We used to watch it on CNN … Anderson Cooper is alright, but we really can’t stand Kathy Griffin, so it will be a different network.
This blog might get a bit of an over-haul in the new year…
