Last Day of February

Last Day of February

The last day of February as the sun rises over Lake Winnebago.  So Long February – let’s hope March is warm and sunny!

Lots of open water on the lake – the warm weather the past 2 weeks has had an impact.  The top is slushy but there were fishing shacks still on the lake yesterday.

Taken with my Panasonic Lumix LX-7.

Pine Needles

Pine Needles

Pine needles in the snow by 8 foot falls.   There are a couple of things to notice in this picture.  First, the water has a nice silkyness.  This is achieved by setting a slow shutter speed which blurs the movement of the water.  I took this in manual mode and set the ISO to 100 and an f/16 aperture to both limit the light and to get a good depth of field.  The shutter speed was set to 1/5 of a second which indicated an overexposure of about 1 stop.  Why the overexposure?  The camera sees the world as grey so with all the snow my camera was fooled into an underexposure which would have made all the snow grey.  So I set for an overexposure to make the snow more white.  With a 1/5 sec shutter time I took this on a tripod – too slow for my hands (especially in the cold)!

Foggy January

Foggy January

January has been an adventure!

Rain, warm, snow and bitter cold.

Woke up this morning to 27 degrees after below zero all week.  Fog everywhere.

Took this on my way to work this morning.  Some ice shoves on Lake Winnebago along with some thin patches from the rain.  Fog obscures the opposite shore.
