Every bit of ground surface around here seems to be covered in super-slippery ice, which I encountered the hard way the other day. It didn't feel very good when I crashed to the ground.
But today I was finally able to dig out my ice cleats from their elusive hiding place in my garage. It took me forever and a day to find them. So I'm going to go back out there with some good traction attached to the bottoms of my feet this time. Hopefully, I can have something good by the end of the week.
And finally, I have a cool new idea for a nature post that maybe nobody else has ever tried. I'm not going to reveal what it is until it happens because I want to be the first one to do it. And I'm not sure how entertained all of you will be by it, but I will find it to be revolutionary. I'll reveal more when I actually do this amazing stunt.
So with that, I'll talk to you later.

So I decided to dig around in some of my old pictures again. This time I only did two, but I also included the originals so you can see the difference in my editing. The originals probably didn't need to be edited, but I'm just having a little fun. Both versions are here forever.
Maybe in my next post I'll be back to my nature loving self with lots of brand new pictures. They'll look snowy, but snow is good too. I'm excited just thinking about being back out there now. And with the warmer weather, I'll be in a little better mood. Now the neighbors don't have to hide from me. I'll talk to you later.

Maybe that's all a bit of an excuse, and maybe I'm a little busy with other things too, but I think I'll wait till things improve some more to go out to some of these places. Until then I do have a few ideas. Today I'll bring you one of them.
I've been looking at some of my old pictures from about ten years ago. I miss those times a lot. I decided to revisit a few of them. What I did was put a few pictures in my favorite photo editor and play around a little. Some are very good and some aren't so good. Let's see how you like them.
(a lot). I wanted the bridge to stand out more than in the original. I think I accomplished that, but it looks a lot different than the original photo.
I decided to learn a bit about photo editing because I've never thought my pictures measured up to those cool looking professionally done nature pictures I see on the Bing homepage. I know they didn't get the look of those pictures straight out of the camera. Lots of editing had to be done. I want to do it too. Maybe I can eventually make a masterpiece.
This isn't my only idea. I have a pretty good sized nature area that I own myself right outside my house. The first six months that I was here I used this area for my nature photography. It worked out just fine. Maybe I'll share a few pictures of my own property for you for a week or two while I wait for conditions to improve. And there will be other ideas too. I'll talk to you later.
