All day today the sky was different. It had different textures, styles, formations, and directions. I am not sure what is in the wind, but something is changing. It might be some kind of a front or a conflict in temperatures, but it was obvious. I was taking pictures in a graveyard dating back to the late 18th century and looked up and took this shot.

I have trouble identifying birds and often get called on the error. So I resist telling you what kind of bird this is. A Heron I thought at first, but the blue head through me. So I have no clue. This is a wonderful swampy low land which dries up towards end of summer, but after two days of rain, its lush, active and beautiful. I am happy to hear about this bird if you should know.

Mundane? Yes. But the afternoon sun made this little spot look very appealing. There is something to be said for interior designers. The color combinations here are so warm and cozy. Well done! What a pleasant place to spend a couple of hours.And so I did.

Passing a tree farm on my way home, I caught eye of a Turkey grazing in a field. Had I stayed in my car, it wouldn't have noticed, but I got out and it caught wind of me about 50 yards away and started high-tailing it away from me. I was at ISO 6400 which is the only reason I was able to get this shot at all. Damn ugly creature but makes for some good eatin.

Today was cold, wet and gray but I still wanted to shoot out doors. After all, my Nikon is weather resistant. But that doesn't mean I can keep the lens clear when the wind is blowing directly at me. It was natural for me to turn the gray day photographs into black and white. This is Wachusett Reservoir, a subject I shoot a lot, but always from a different vantage point. This is a combination of four photographs merged into a gray panorama.
