It was really, really cold out today—and windy, and snowy. The weather report said that the wind chill was 14 degrees!! Even though I had on several layers of warmth, I felt every one of those degrees!
One of the most difficult things about taking pictures when it’s this cold and snowy (besides the obvious), is keeping my camera warm and dry. Usually, I just stuff it inside my jacket. The problem with this approach is, I’m hard pressed to get the camera out quickly for an unexpected shot—like today, when the geese flew overhead! And, with the camera stuffed in my jacket, it’s even harder for me to stay warm because I can’t zip my jacket up all the way to my chin!
In spite of the cold, wind and snow, the ducks and the geese and the swan (just one) were all happily floating around in the pond —but I never saw a single songbird on my entire walk! (Unlike me, they must have had the good sense to stay home!!)
