Post-Christmas Breakfast for the Birds

With about 10 inches on the ground from yesterday, with a little more expected today, Kate trudged out this morning to refill the feeders.

Since it was still relatively dark and cloudy, I used an on-camera flash to give the picture a little extra.

Kate and I hope you're having a Merry Christmas

What the heck are we doing on Flickr on Christmas anyway???

Kate bought these ornaments when we were in Spokane and this one was particularly photogenic. Since my only other options were to watch "Christmas Story" or help clean the house, I opted for taking pictures.

Lighting: SB600 camera right at 1/4 power and less than 2 feet from ornament, white side of old Kodak gray card camera left as reflector. Triggered by CLS

This was by accident. We were setting up and I screwed up the flash on the key light. The resulting picture looked pretty good, so we did a few more.

I like the form of this tree and have tried this shot a couple of times at other seasons, without success. Today, with the fresh snow, I got the kind of image I was looking for.

Southbound BNSF 6033, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

We were driving north to Spokane from Pasco. The tracks parallel WA 395 some of the way and I was looking out for oncoming trains. I spotted this one while it was still far away, and magically, we came up on an exit at the same time. I scared Kate by suddenly pulling off. We got to the tracks with about 10 seconds to spare for me to set the camera and fire off a few shots.
