Snow Day
Dec 10, 2013

A fast moving snow storm came through this morning, and this afternoon the sun came out and so did my XZ-1. These were taken on my walk to our local park.

Afternoon Sun!

Olympus Blue!

Frosted Pine!

Regards,

Larry C.

Aaron,

I hear you mate, but it's (-4C) here, and windy. Top is down on the MG, but she will be staying in the garage because we've had ice covered roads for two days now. Eddy and I are hunkered down for at least one more day. Cobber's got no problem with the snow, and doesn't understand what my problem is with the cold.

Eddy checking out the new snow, ready to go!

Landscapes will follow later.

Larry C.

-4 eh , well I could get to that and colder if I got into the penguin enclosure at Sea World.

Here is Eddy's mate Shelby , lives on the sunshine coast and hates our current weather.

G'Day Aaron,

Don't tell Shelby, but Eddy thinks she's a very pretty girl. Great dogs these Shelties, my wife and I have rescued (4) shelties over the past thirty years from our local Rescue Group. All were either neglected or abused. Below are a few images from this years Sheltie Rescue picnic. The golden lab laying down in the center of the first photo was greatly out numbered:-D

Eddy will turn 10 years old this month, and has just passed his Canine Good Citizenship test to become a therapy dog. We will start visiting a local hospital, and senior center after the first of the year.

A few of the Sheltie's relaxing at the picnic .

One of the games we played, Eddy finished third.

Eddy showing good form on his way to first place in the popcorn toss!

Regards,

Larry C.

Ben,

Good to hear from you, and thank you for your comments. Eddy's ancestors came from the Shetland Islands where (-4C) is a warm day in December, and he loves to play in the snow.

I hope to get up to Longwood Gardens soon for their Holiday display, and will post a few more images then.

Regards,

Larry C.

The only snow so far, one can only dream

sometimes dreams come true like ISO 2500 on a mirror less compact
