Still Chilly!

Below zero is too chilly to get a clear picture out the open window. The heat from the house causes the air to shimmer and everything looks a bit fuzzy. Unfortunately, while I like playing outside in the cold my camera and it’s battery seriously object to such treatment. I suppose in theory a person could have a really clean window and shoot from inside – however this is a theory I have been unable to test. But fuzzy issues and all I just can’t resist sharing this cold, grumpy looking sparrow!

I changed this from the original photo I posted. This one has gone through much photo shop doctoring with the intent that it looks more like a painting.

Thank you for all the well wishes on my Clara induced injury it’s getting better everyday!

    The photo is lovely. You achieved your goal of making it look like a painting. Before I even read your caption, I thought that the photo had that watercolor quality to it.

      Thanks, I’m happy it turned out as well as it did. Such a funny fluffy bird and such waves of heat out the window I was sad I couldn’t get a clear shot but I think this will do instead. 🙂

  6. I love the rich colors of this photo & the bird’s expression is great! I am looking for a zoom lens since the snow is too deep for me to “sneak” up on the birds 🙂
