How Long 'Till Spring?

The recent weather has me wondering how long before Spring returns? The weatherman has been confused of late, as usual. We were supposed to get snow but rain and ice was all. Luckily, more rain than ice so we didn't lose power.

Ran across this tree image while trying Perfectly Clear out (the more I use PC, the more impressed I am with it). Took the shot two springs ago, if I recall correctly. It is a really old tree on the farm that I imagine dates back to the Revolution. Certainly at least to the Civil War. Alas, it's time is about done. Last year half of it broke off in a storm revealing rot in the center.

It was a foggy, gloomy day when I captured it. The crow landed on top and I hit the shutter thinking it fit the mood perfectly. Christmas is just around the corner. Spring will return before we know it.

Spring Wheat Fields

This image was captured from my first Palouse visit and recently reprocessed. Good thing I don't farm there- I'd never get any work done chasing the light.

Left in the Grass

After a very busy fall season on the farm, I've started to look at some files from this past year's photo adventures. This old truck was sitting along side the road in the Palouse region of Washington State. It seemed like there was an old truck around every other bend in the country roads. This is one of my favorites from the trip.

I used Athentech's Perfectly Clear plug-in. It is the easiest way to get from good to great in one click I know of. Highly recommended.
