|See, it even looks cold! - look at the shine on the snow, it got so cold it changed to ice.|
|Dramatic winter sunset|
|Another crazy sunset|

I started with making bread in a crockpot, yup a crockpot - http://homereadyhome.com/make-bread-crockpot/ That went ok but the bread was pretty heavy. Had a great flavour tho. Then a friend pointed me to no-knead bread - http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/11376-no-knead-bread and I've been addicted ever since.
|No-Knead Bread - note the homemade wine behind it, wine and bread - yup!|
Also over the winter I did Phil Steele's Lightroom made easy course. This course is really good and for the price you can't go wrong. I now have a much better feel for lightroom, I highly recommend it - http://steeletraining.com/lightroom-course-15.htm
Just to show you what "blah" looks like. This was out walking today, one of the first days I've really been able to get out;
There is no colour in the sky, the snow is no longer bright white, no wildlife and all the vegetation is dead - BLAH! :-) Even converted to monochrome it's blah! The only time we get bright snow and blues skies is when it's super cold. Just no winning this year.
That was my winter. Playing World of Warcraft, Elite Dangerous and Star Wars while my camera sits beside me waiting for spring. My X100S is currently in Australia with Jen for a month while she gets a paid vacation down there. Look forward to what she brings back for photos, at least my X100 gets to travel - lol
As spring approaches I should be out and about more, so check back from time to time. Cheers!
