Good Morning

spMorning stormy sky

Typical pre-Spring weather: one day sun and the next 2-3 days rain and clouds and there is a cold wind blowing. The weather report was not so favourable yesterday and the altitudes are dropping for snowfall, so it might be that we will have some tomorrow, perhaps even today. Today does not bother me but I am not keen to go shopping through snow tomorrow morning. However, perhaps we are lucky and it will miss us. At the moment I can hear the wind blowing through the nearby trees.

I am now homebound so make the most of what happens around me, which is not very much.

Crocus and Helleborus Niger

I saw some brave crocus in my garden and even my Christmas rose is still flowering.

My morning photos are all done with my X iPhone, so that are quite fresh from the morning. Just imagine me standing outside in my nightdress with a gale force wind surrounding me taking photos. I must really be a dedicated photographer. I must say the quality of the iPhone X photos is not too bad, although when I magnify them that are not as sharp and clear as I would like them.

I notice there is a guy on Facebook advertising how to make perfect photos with your iPhone camera. It should have the latest update, which mine always has, and there is a so-called live setting which enables photos that capture the various movements on a subject, like my cat yawning perhaps, or water running and giving it that fluffly appearance with a slow exposure. I had already discovered how to do this myself, but it is always good to collect more information. I noticed this guy only gives you bits and pieces and says of the untold possibilities of the iPhone camera. Evetually you get the link with more instructions and then there is the part where he wants to sell his knowledge and that is where I move on. It is not cheap approaching $100 and I have already discovered most of the possibilities myself.


Even my neighbour has flowering daffodils in her garden. Mine are still thinking about it. This was also taken with my mobile phone, but I had to spruce it up a bit with the contrast and clarity.

And now to plan my day. When I am washed and ready to face the world after my shower, I will do a little tidying in the apartment and at some time begin to cook a Sunday lunch. I would love to get out and take some photos with my camera, but it is too cold and windy and wet for a wheelie in my chair. Even the bird house is empty and I should really fill it with some food. I stopped when the weather improved, because they can find their own food then, but now it is really unfriendly and they are sitting in the tree opposite waiting for some action.

I will also now get into some action and trust you are all keeping well. If not it can only get better. Otherwise those over the pond sleep well.
