So... Long time, no see! Between bad weather (being snowed in with no power for 2 days in January) and just general life stuff, the blog has once again taken a back seat to... well, everything. In an effort to rectify that (at least to a small extent) I thought I'd post a snippet of … Continue reading Flotsam
Just a few pics from the drive home over the last couple of days.
View from my drive home.
Just a few photos from the last two days, driving in to work. Nice to see a bit of blue sky, it's been so dark and rainy for so long.
Just a few recent pics. Moon and Venus, 7AM, Jan. 6, 2016 Sunrise over Farksolia, Jan. 6, 2016. The roads were total ice, so traffic was doing about 20mph through this stretch. And without the wires Snow earlier in the week (January 3) so I got to work from home that Monday (Jan. 4). It … Continue reading Early January Photos
Just a few shots from my morning commute. There was a double but I just couldn't fit it all in the image. I kept wanting to stop and take pictures on the way in but didn't have time! Grrrr. Hence some lousy framing and road signs. I love the sun on the green trees with … Continue reading Rain + Sun = Rainbow

It goes something like this: I pretend Jane Austen is riding shotgun with me, and I get to explain to her the workings of the automobile, traffic, commuting, and we discuss the improvements in … Continue reading Driving with Jane Austen
These pictures feel like a fairytale world. I need to write a fantasy set in this place. Gotta come up with a name for it. Amazing how it's never the same two days in a row. When I look at these pictures I keep wanting to label them "Farksolia." But I need to think up … Continue reading Imaginary Worlds
This is what I get for going to work when most people are on vacation/holiday. It's a driveway at one of the farms I pass, with their own streetlight, but we'll just pretend it's the moon, 'k? And these trees on the hill. I like silhouettes. I did not set the camera to black and … Continue reading Some Consolation
I failed to bring my camera with me for a couple of days, and missed probably the most amazing rainbow I'd ever seen. It was bright, wide, and straight ahead of me. Let us hope I have learned my lesson, to wit: Just because it's raining in the morning doesn't mean the clouds won't part … Continue reading Rainbows and Autumn Sun
