*Wow, just realised this is my 1200th post!
Yesterday afternoon I went for a nice two-hour walk, camera looped around my neck (no camera bag, so no zoom lens, as my back was barking), hoping to find something for today’s Wordless Wednesday, over on Sorryless. Of COURSE, there was more than one occasion where I would have liked to have my zoom. Live with our choices, I say. So what if I couldn’t get a nice closeup of this tree filled with robins and one blackbird who was lording it up top, and that I had to manipulate the hell out of to help you see their red bellies?
The forecast was for partial sun and lemme tell you, it was partial a’ight (or ayt, as my kids write it). I walked around the corner towards my usual park (which feels like an eon since I last walked to it) it started to lightly snow. By the time I turned to the next street, snowfall had become nil. But the sun was a tease. Or maybe it was the clouds that were just too damn possessive and wanted to keep the rays all to themselves?
The clouds did open their jaws for a brief moment…showing some blue
Allowing a small area to light up for a short period of time…
Oh no, wait. Not that light! This one.
And the one that made trees cast shadows, added sparkle to pine needles, and pop to playgrounds.
It got me to thinking man, oh man, where is the golden hour from last week. LAST WEEK! Oh! How could I forget? I promised Sheree, from View From the Back, the church bells! After last week’s Wordless Wednesday on Sorryless, she said how much she enjoyed church bells and I promised her some…
I had shared some images without including the Sainte Anne de Varennes Minor Basilica, so why not share them now, right?
The video is a tad long but hey, I was in the moment and the light was so beautiful and the wind crisp and when the second person was headed into the video, I stopped. Plus, they were dying down.
Hope you enjoy, Sheree!
