This is one of the coldest winters and we had our first snowfall for 2018 yesterday. We got more than expected and didn't have to go to work so I'm out and about photographing the snow. The chicken and ducks are cold and they have to be well-fed to keep their bodies warm, they also… Continue reading Snow

We all have different reasons why we like snow. Lee loves it because she doesn't have school, Max loves to eat snow, and as for me it's an opportunity to photograph snow.

It was actually a lot lower but I took the picture anyway since I didn't want to miss the blue hour. February's full Moon is traditionally called the Full Snow… Continue reading Snow Moon

I recently read a photographer's post that she had lost all her photos when her hard-disk failed and didn't do any backup. I knew then that I need to backup mine also, the last backup I did was in May 2013. Since then I took many photos, and used up 90% of my 2TB disc… Continue reading The Price of Procrastination
