Spring....Time of New Growth

As if it wasn't nice enough, Spring is bringing out all its glory.  I'm glad this little tree is now on the north side of the house and not out in the open were it use to be.  We are suppose to get 40+ mph winds today and if it was where it use to be the few buds of flowers there now would be lost.  This time next week it should be in full bloom and stay that way up to almost June, short of the winds getting it.

I've done a little extra to it but I won't have to next week.  It will be hard to see the bark for the blooms if everything works out.

Foggy Mornings? Think Spring.

The ground hasn't really warmed up yet so when you get an unexpected rise in temperatures you get the morning fog.  It won't last long because the day before was warm so the ground picked up quite a bit of heat.

Just a Streak....Blink..Blink..Blink

I was playing around with lenses in the dark sky when I saw a light coming towards me from the east.  Even though these things are moving relatively slow at the distance from me they move very fast when you are working in the dark and trying to make adjustment.  Didn't have time to setup the tripod so this is hand held.  I trashed the head on approaches because of too much camera shake but you can see some sort of external lighting, maybe wing lights are present as well as each wing and tail marker lamps.  There were three planes in a row but I just couldn't get setup properly.  All from the east and all headed to Vandalia, Dayton International Airport.
