20 Mar

The first picture was taken I think 2 days ago and the second one yesterday.

Remember the song “Those Lazy,Hazy, Crazy days of Summer” ?….Well welcome to MY world!

Even though it’s still March and we COULD get 12 inches of snow any day……….

Because there are SO MANY lakes around this area we do, occasionally have high humidity….especially this time of year when the snow is gone and there is LOTS of surface water and much of the land is still frozen so it doesn’t drain away.

Great for fishing and hunting but as you can see in the pictures there is a MARKED difference in the ‘look’ of things.

Both pictures were taken at more or less the same location although I had not intended the first as anything but a ‘maybe’ shot so the match is less than exact.

Both had very mild Topazing and were cropped and resized but no ‘photo-haze’ is added for effect… is honest in that respect as the colour of the trees etc.

My house is about 1/2 way down on the left…..AND there are NO houses on the right hand side for about 6 miles …so you can see we’re fairly private.  LOL

I realize it’s not the most exciting post but I personally like pictures of people IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT…..and not many of this group have shown us where they REALLY live.

    Beautiful images, and yes, March can be very tricky. Last night we had down to minus 4.5 Celsius and it was snowing this morning. Now it is up to plus 4.5 and light drizzle instead. It is supposed to get warmer towards the end of the week though, we live in hope 🙂

    That haze makes for a beautiful image…you really live in a scenic area! While you are getting the snow, we will be getting lots of rain and 70 degree weather! 🙂

    Your part of the world is beautiful! We are enjoying the unusually warm March . . . but worry that the trees and plants will be damaged when (or if) a cold snap comes around.

    I’m still not sure where you took the picture and am trying to position myself and remember the lay of the land as you drive towards your house from the village. I guess it’ll come to me sooner or later. Both nice shots and great examples of perspective as the ribbon of road snakes its way into the distance in an undulating serpentine manner.

    What a cool place to live. I like the misty shot–but I’m partial to mist and fog.
