About Me

My photo
We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Photography For All Seasons

Don't put that camera away just because it's cold out!  I felt this statement just needed to be made because so many folks only take their camera for a walk when the weather is fair or when the leaves are colorful.  I've heard it said many times that winter is like watching a black and white movie.  There's tons of reasons and excuses for keeping the camera cooped up when the weather turns fowl.  One of the reasons might simply be that people don't like going out in the cold or that they think the camera can't be exposed to the cold or as I said at the start that there is no color during winter.  Well, all of these statements would be wrong!  Dress for the conditions and get out there and enjoy every season, and yes that also means winter.  The camera equipment can take the cold so that shouldn't be an excuse.  While I won't go into it here, there are a few precautions you can take to make the temperature changes tolerable for your camera.  So let's not make that an excuse!  In regard to winter being blah and having no color, that couldn't be further from the truth.  Here's a few pictures that were taken over the last couple weeks and I believe you will see there's definitely some color.  Now get outside and enjoy!

Okay, so I couldn't resist a bit of Photoshopping on this image!

Did you happen to notice any color in these pictures?

You know Tom, you know you are a talented photographer when you can take something as common as a Bluejay and show the inner beauty in it with a single photograph. Amazing as usual my friend!
