After the Snowstorm


This is someone on my street clearing out their driveway. Actually I think they are clearing the road, we didn't see a plow all day! We got over 30cm of snow and that with the 100km/hr winds resulted in some pretty high drifts.

Tulips


Remember this gift (click here)? Well, today is my birthday so I got to open it and it is a new lens from Joe....this lens to be exact. I often complain about having to switch lenses when I am out and about to get more zoom, this should solve that problem. Today's photo wasn't taken with the new lens, though, I used my macro lens for this. This is actually 2 photos, I layered the top tulip on and faded it a bit. I don't do much digital art but sometimes I am in the mood to experiment.
