The Hunter the Rabbit and the Dog.

The weather was so nice out today and into this evening that I decided to get out and get some star trail shots this evening.

This first shot is a 15 second exposure.

This one is the same 15 second exposure from the first shot and 12 5 minute exposures stacked and darkened so that only the brightest stars actually show up in the trails.

This final one is the same 15 second exposure as the other two shots, its also the same 12 5 minute exposures stacked, only they are lightened so that only more of the stars show up in the trails.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snow shots.

We got a little snow this last week, enough in fact, that they closed the schools down for two days.  Does this look like enough snow to make you stay home from work?  Makes me wonder what we are teaching our kids.  I mean really, years from now are they going to think its okay to skip out on work when a couple inches of snow falls?  Probably.

 

 

Grass fire!

This swath of pasture caught fire today and headed right for home.

Here is a shot of one of the NFD water trucks doing a little mop up work.

Some more of the NFD trucks doing a little clean up work.  Thanks guys!

That amount of hay is probably going to burn for days.

This pic doesn’t to the real thing justice but it was taken from the yard just as the smoke started to die down a bit.
