Rain Drops Keep Falling In April

Rain Drops Keep Falling......Singing as I type

My moose is even sad and water logged.

Lichen (thanks Vicki for the name) is growing on trees

My white birch has sad eyes on the bark because of the rain

So what I do, go outside and take a few photos......my humor kicked in when taking the pictures!!!

Finally A Decent Ringneck Duck Shot

I was out and about yesterday, Bob noticed ducks on Lake Waukewan in Center Harbor.  I had my Canon 100-400 and 1.4 extender and find out my set up was really not going to capture the ducks. 

The sun was starting to come out after night of heavy rain, I decided to give it a try one more try.  Three were still on the lake but again too far to photograph.  We turned around and found a pair on the other side of the road  I was finding again too far for a decent shot.  Starting to head home we looked one more time towards the lake and saw that the three original ducks were coming towards the shore line to rest after eating.  My opt!!!!

Sunday Visit at Meredith, New Hampshire

On the way to Meredith I stopped to photograph

We finally had a beautiful weekend and Sunday was too nice to stay home cleaning the yard around our snow piles :).

I left my photo equipment home not realizing we were going to stay out after running a few errands.  I had purchased a Canon G11 to keep me all times and it paid off.  I saw a few really nice photo opts giving me an opportunity to explore and play with my point and shoot.  My camera did OK!!!

Meredith April's Sunday Surprise. Scuba Divers

Bob and I were out today and hated returning home because the weather was so beautiful.  We took a ride to Meredith, walked the boardwalk and sat looking at the beautiful scenery, taking in the sun.  We were NOT alone quite few people were out. 

Arriving I started spotting photo opts but as luck would have it, shame on me, I left my photo equipment home. I purchase a Canon G11 point and shoot to carry with me at all times like today. 

We noticed two men parking and getting out gear from their truck...scuba diving equipment.  April's Lake Winnipesaukee the men mentioned was 45 degrees, still quite few areas on the  have ice.  Wayne Philibert and Stu May were kind to allow me to take photos and as you can see they were more than willing to educate me and the youngsters.

They explored the underneath part of  frozen ice. I have to stress I watch Stu and Wayne setting up and safety was a prime concern...they know what they are doing.
