Our daughter ate her first 100% organic snow cone today. Tonight when we left the house she asked to touch the snow. She reached down and grabbed it with both hands. Before I could blink, she was double-fisting the snow and trying to feed it to me. After her third bite she looked up at me and said “nummy”. Enjoy my latest 4K video production. Shot with a Sony PXW-FS7, Canon 24-105 f/4, Canon 300 2.8 f/2.8 and A few Metabones adapters.

This weeks “In light of Friday” series is taking a break from flowers. I went to The National Zoo only to find some squabbling Flamingo’s–they must be siblings.
My Friday nature series continues with yet another round of lilies is blooming in our yard. These were oh so fragrant. Beautiful work God. I promise we’ll move on to something different soon.
I moved last year and it has made my Spring & Summer exciting. Here’s why. The people who we bought the home from had a green thumb and a gift for landscaping. Every week it seems like we are discovering new types of plants and flowers as they return after our historically cold winter. Here is one one of my favorites, the Daylily.
More cold weather means more ice crystal photos. See also my original ice crystal post. I find it hard to believe that both of those photos are from the same ice crystal on my daughter’s bedroom window.
Baby, it’s cold outside! We are having the coldest winter in 20 years in the Washington D.C. area. This is only news to you if you have been living under a rock or “wintering” in Florida. If you are wintering in Florida we are all jealous and we would rather not know. Tech info: I used a 100mm macro f/2.8L with about 30mm of extension tubes so I could get even closer. This photo is full frame and is not cropped.
Late morning Snowquester update:
It looks like the weather forecasters called in some favors after being mocked in the morning. The snow is falling quite steadily now yet the purple crocus will not have its limelight stolen by a little Snowquestration.
What a welcome sight! In the northeast these purple crocus’s are often the first flower to bloom. Spring has been a long time in the making and I can’t wait to open up the windows in the house, go for walks with my wife without the her wearing the “snow beast” and get out on my mountain bike early and often.
