Day 227 – Ground Fog


This morning as I made my way out of the house, I was taken by the ground fog, especially looking back at the willow trees. The fog provided a nice soft filter effect on the willow trees with a beautiful blue sky filled with white puffy clouds. Foggy and clear at the same time, a natural contrast.

Day 56 Cass River – Frankenmuth, MI

Today was another beautiful day.  I just love it when the sun shines on the freshly fallen snow.  Because of the snowstorm yesterday, the schools were all closed.  It came down very quickly during the early morning, but when it was all said and done, we only had about 4 inches here in Frankenmuth.  The weatherman on the news said it was only 2 inches, but I measured in my yard, and it was 4 inches.  Today, the sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful blue with white puffy clouds.  I spent the morning cleaning off the driveway and used the snow blower for the first time this year.  Afterwards, I journeyed down to the Gugel Bridge, yes the same bridge from Day 14.  This time I focused on the Cass River, as it shimmered in the sun.  This is another HDR photo, I set my camera for 7 shots, you can tell by looking at the clouds, they are a little fuzzy, due to the wind.  There aren’t too many days of winter, but in Michigan, we usually will have one or two big snows in March.  It has been a mild winter with less than average snow fall.  I don’t really mind this year, our heating bills have been a lot lower.  Now I’m ready for spring, the Tigers players reported for Spring Training this week, so we know Spring is on the way.  I also saw a Robin yesterday; another sign that Spring is near.  I’m ready!
