my neighbors tree was on fire...

Post  kevin stoeveken on Sat Jan 31, 2015 2:14 pm

yesterday was a beautiful winter day here in s.e. wisconsin, with bright sun and no wind...


so toward the end of the day i went back outside to feel the last of the warmth on my face and let my dog run about...


when i got outside i noticed my neighbors tree was on fire !!!


but not in a bad way...


so i ran for my camera
















man o man... i just love that kind of light at that time of day at this time of year  sunny
(no phake-o-shop enhancements... ever.)

Planted 30 seeds of Shansu J.B.pine see them in 10 days if the seed is still viable, the packet was old in the veggie crisper.
Soaked in warm water 24 hrs. no floaters.

Yeah, that white fluffy stuff turned into wet and heavy! 'Red night' was not a 'sailor's delight' for us!

One of the great secrets of photography is recognizing a moment and taking advantage of it. Beautiful photo; thanks for taking the picture and sharing it with us.

The main part of that storm did hit south of you, it really dumped on me. 20 inches or more of snow, plus the wind piled a 4 foot drift over my back door. I think I'll have another cup of coffee and forget about leaving the house today.

I live about 20 miles due south of Kevin.

Really love the photo. Reminds me of a photo exhibit I saw as a kid, Robert Maplethorpe's "A Perfect Moment",
Capturing that moment of shear beauty.
