Goose Down © Lynn Wiles 2013
I’ve seen a lot of geese in my day, but I’ve never seen one do what this one was doing. It would float and preen, then swim a short distance, then flip itself upside down. It repeated the pattern of float / preen / swim / flip again and again. It was very quick and hard to capture.

A big warm puddle of melted snow, so deep you can see the wind blow.

Afternoon Sea © Lynn Wiles 2013
To celebrate Daylight Savings Time, we made plans to go to the sea. Since this happened two days after the most recent big storm, I wasn’t sure what we would find. The waves were bigger at this usually calm beach.

I have never seen quite so many sea creatures washed up. The seagulls couldn’t even eat them all. Photos of what we found will be coming up in the next few days.
It was nice having the sun set an hour later, but not nice waking up one hour earlier and yes, I’ve had a lot of tea.

Big houses on the lake, looking tiny compared to the sky reflecting on the now ice free lake, as we prepare for our next big winter storm. Click on image for a larger view.

Lots of Rain © Lynn Wiles 2013
Lots of rain means a lot of melting, torrents in a normally calm brook, and a happier me.

It was so incredibly warm, humid, overcast, and a little foggy yesterday. Being out without a coat, hat, or gloves was dreamy. I went to a pond, thinking the ice surely would have melted, but it had not. This little scene caught my eye.

The Big Chill © Lynn Wiles 2013
The cold front is upon us, so I decided to see how a lake begins to freeze. Yes, I went to the beach. I hope you can see the thin sheets of ice loaded with bubbles. I converted it to b&w, so it’s easier to see without the distraction of color. Quite the contrast from the day before.
