Spy camera

My camera is still being temperamental.  I suspect the 'fix' was temporary.   The cell phone takes OK photos but doesn't perform as binoculars as well as the camera does.  With my eyesight not as sharp as it used to be, I'm now in the habit of reaching for the camera when I want a closer look at something.

Something caught my eye on the farm the other day.  A flash of white where there shouldn't be any.  I used the phone and the result was no help whatsoever in identifying the white thing - it had moved!  So my guess was it was a vehicle across on the side road.

But I quite like the photo I got anyway.  The little white you can see on the left is a puddle from recent rain. 


Oh yes, there has been a lot of rain.  Today we're having several seasons in one day.  This morning was warm and sunny.  I heard the roll of distant thunder as I was heading home from the lodge.  An hour or so later a poor excuse for a storm passed over us,  now it is dull, overcast a bit windy and getting cold.

  1. Pauline, it is hellish wet here as well. It used to be called global warming, then global cooling, I think that loon Greata Thunderbird, the one who can see CO² very 'Special' she is, it's called global wetting.

    1. My son, the farmer, informs me there has in fact not been a lot of rain this winter. Not as much as usual, so all I can think is the lesser amount has fallen more frequently. Because it does seem to rain every day. Not a lot at a time but constantly.

    1. Tabor, I blame for the view for my hermit tendancies.

  3. You do live in a beautiful place. A temperamental camera is a perfect excuse to buy yourself a new one, and there are some great ones out there.

    1. That's the trouble, though. So many great cameras out there and so much information about them. Where to start???

  5. Yes, Messymimi, whether we like it or not, there is always weather. I like living on a hill and being able to 'see' the weather more.

  6. I do the same, use the camera to zoom things in... And I agree, while my phone takes quite good 'landscape' photos, it is not so helpful for zooming!
