Happy New Year and the Monthly Photo

Well, I'm a little late on posting my first of the month photo. For those that stumble on this site, I started taking a photo out the same window of my house at the same time every month and plan on doing it for a year. I had planned on only the first and then decided to do the 15th also. My point was to see the change in the scenery every month. The changing of the lighting as well as the color changes. This was prompted by my noticing the movement, which I was well aware of, the sun in its track across the horizon.

The view is looking east across a farmers field just off our subdivisions property line. There is a highway below the large tree to the right of the tower off in the distance. Actually the pine trees on the left follow a road that goes under the highway. You could do a Google or Map Quest of Swigart Rd. and I-675 to see this passing. Depending on which one you use you would could see my house from above. There is a traffic round about, really confusing in this part of the woods, and two ponds to the south side of Swigart. I'm the first house to the left of the left pond. Some sites show it as dirt some with grass. Depends on their updates.

My decision was to take the picture at 8 AM just so I would have light. I am trying to take all the pictures the same with small improvements in Elements 8 for some clarity. Come rain or shine, same window, same time, same shot. I'm close enough for this amatuer. Too perfect and it isn't a hobby but a job. I did take a monochrome so we have two photos today. 

On this day it was raining. Later on the day turned out beautiful. Much warmer and very sunny.

See you on the 15th, or there abouts.
