Outside The Snow Is Falling

Andy | Saturday, February 09, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

I was getting worried as the snow began to drift higher than my boots.

****************************************


I photographed this one through the stained glass on my front door.

Finally I became brave enough to open the door.

This was the only squirrel that showed up for his daily feed of peanuts.

****************************************


The sparrows stayed close to the feeder all day. I made sure it never ran out. I did venture outside later and shoveled the snow. Because the snow was coming down heavy my camera stayed indoors.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

Andy | Saturday, February 02, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

Due to the lousy weather that's keeping me indoors I have had to dig into my photos from last summer. Located in the State Maine, USA Pemaquid Point Light was built in 1827. The station sits on a sloping, rocky promontory with dramatic ridges left by the pounding sea. The tower's original Fresnel lens is still in use. The keeper's house now hosts a Fishermen's Museum. It exhibits equipment, photos and artifacts from the fishing and lobstering industries as well as the lighthouse service.
