Not going anywhere, besides Jen's place. Just going to take it easy, relax and recharge the mental batteries. Also going to try and motivate myself to get out there with the camera. Suppose to be sunny the next few days, although cool but spring is on the way and it's getting nicer each day. Lots of Canadian Geese flying around, flooded fields from the melt and patches of snow. If I can get away from the mud I should be able to find some cool pictures if I get motivated ;-)
So here's a few from this past week. Nothing special but at least I'm out there shooting!

Actually these pictures are upside down ;-) The birds were at my feeder and hanging upside down to eat. The tree in the background is a bit distracting. These guys pick out the seed looking for the sunflowers and drop the rest on the ground for the other types of birds to eat. Went away for 2 days and they have almost emptied the feeder.
I've had Color Efex for some time but have never played with it much. I'm not much of a filter person. Have tried them in the past and was never all that successful with them. Since the pictures weren't all that special I decided to look at what the program can do. Found this Polaroid effect. Original on the left, Polaroid on the right. Kinda cool.
A rather boring sunset tonight, so tried out the Colour Efex again and put a "glow" on. Neat look, not something I'd do every day though.
