Not “Frozen” like the movie, more frozen like tundra. After the last few years of relatively mild winters in the Midwest, it seems like this winter is bearing down with no mercy. Snow, ice, and bitter cold remind us daily of the warmth we are looking forward to when “winter” is no longer a swear word in our family. Last week Dan came up with a particularly good analogy. As we snuggled together with Carter in our bed he said, “Winter is like space: it might be nice to look at, but it is not suitable for human habitation.” I wholeheartedly agree.
On the plus side, we were able to take some slight advantage of the recent ice storm to try out our new Pentax K50. We’ll be talking a lot more about this camera in the future, but for now I’ll just say that we are very impressed with the image quality. I think with some practice we could get (and have already gotten) some really fabulous shots with this camera.
