HAPPY NEW YEARS TO ALL! ENJOY A NICE MIX OF PHOTOGRAPHS.

작년
I was out of town Friday so I am running behind getting my post up.



Yesterday we received around 6 inches of snow. I had to get it plowed early because rain is forecast for the afternoon. The rains came later than foretasted but they did arrive by evening. Not sure how much we received but if I had not plowed the snow it would be a real mess this morning. As it is what is laying in parking area and driveway will be ice by tonight. It is suppose to get well below zero the next couple of nights. I do not mind the snow and ice unless it is one of those winters where we get well over 100 inches. It has been awhile since we got over that amount. The last time was back to back winters ans we received over 150 inches each year. One of those years most of the snow dropped over a 3 week period. I frequently had to plow twice a day.

I have many seedlings ready to transplant in my plant room. So today I will build some hydroponic units. I have 3 containers (10 gallons or 37.8541 liters). I have six more containers ordered. I was hoping I could have practiced with my tripod and movie settings to do a video for d.tube. Not enough time so I may just take photographs.

I think some bright colored flowers are in order today. I am trying to mix other photos with flowers to stretch my flower photos until Spring. I think a bright blue is a place to start. This flower looks like Status, which go wonderful in flower bouquets:

Someone asked to see photographs of my wife's chocolate pies. She makes them from scratch using real cocoa(they are deliscious):

This next photograph are my holiday cookies. My mother baked these every year. She made and sold a lot of these cookies over the years to help help earn money during the winter. For many years after I left home she sent me some for the holidays. She had to stop baking years before she passed away so I had to learn to make them. I am not as good of a decorator as she was, but they are still delicious. This is just a small sampling that I made. I always give some to my daughter and granddaughter as a gift.

Here is another flower photo I took last summer. I am sure I posted other photos of it, but this one was not coded so I assume I have yet to use it:

IMG_3029-S.JPG

Here is a photograph from yesterday morning before the temperatures warmed:

IMG_3988-S.JPG

As I was about to go out and plow snow I spotted this flock of Wild Turkeys just outside my fenced back yard. I had to rush my shot because my youngest dog came outside and decided it was her job to chase them away. They were already on the run when I started snapping photographs. This was one of the better photos:

IMG_3999-S.JPG

I will close this weeks post with another yellow flower. With all the snow it is very bright and cheerful.

I hope everyone finds something to their liking in the photography. Have a great week and upcoming week.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted.

Upvotes and resteem are always welcome. In the event anyone wants to use one of my photos please ask and give me credit.

REMEMBER SPAM AND PLAGIARISM WILL LEAD TO MUTING. I edited this because I just had to mute someone for plagiarism. Please do not use what someone else has left as a comment. I do not like flagging people, but I have a long list of those that have been muted. I get a lot of comments and try to upvote them all, and it is not fair to those who left a comment or even a photo, nor is it fair to the Steemit platform. People work hard here so use your own words please.

NAMASTE

happy new year to you too and all who are reading this, good collection of photos

·

Thank you very much. Happy New Year!

I am amazed that you have wild turkeys walking around your house, we would have eaten them a long time ago :) Great photo. Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. All the best!

·

Thank you very much. Happy New Year!

I usually hunt Turkeys so we have something besides venison, but during the Spring hunt is when my wife was ill. For the Fall hunt I had a lot of venison to process. I do all but the sausage making. I still have some turkey in freezer from last year. They are a bit tough to chew, but making some turkey vegetable soup takes care of that.

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

It's a pity that it started to rain. For me, winter should be with snow. We already have a lot of snow, and the frosts are not lagging behind - 15%. Your flowers in the photo warm the soul :)

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Yellow color pigments are very detailed in your photography sir. It is really amazing to see both purple and yellow shade in this blog. I want to see more color in 2019. Happy new year sir.

Your photos are wonderful, just love the turkey shot, we see them all the time here in Upstate NY and yes sir, they are hard to capture on camera, they really can move when they want to, good job. Happy New Year !!

·

Thank you very much. Happy New Year!

We have had several flocks but a couple moved on to "greener pastures". This flock is pretty good size. We did not see them all summer even though I have a water tank for the deer, and fed the deer all Summer because they were in bad shape. Turkeys always seem to stay in good shape. Thankfully the deer recovered nicely and have plenty of fat on them to help them through the winter.

Hi @r2cornell, Happiness, peaceful and prosperous New year to you.
I'm always loving your real macro photo clicks.
Namasthe.

Happy new year to you and your family. Love and blessings!

Now, that would be a hilarious video to watch. lol

You are right it would have been great watching a 35 pound dog rush the fence and get excited as the turkeys ran off.

Welcome back to back with great photography @r2cornell. I have to admit that people have crazy craze in your photography. 89 comments are here, mindblowing.

·

Thank you very much. I used to get 150 and higher but a lot of people dropped out. Plus I think steemit has been cleaning out some of the multiple accounts. I also muted a lot. I sometimes do not have the time of SP to visit everyone's posts because of the number of comments (126 at this writing).

Have a great new year

wow this nature photography is very beautiful .thanks for sharing this post.

Its amazing sir @r2cornell. One thing I learned from your post, don't ever stop creating, age is not a barrier to doing something. I am happy to know that you are in good health to do all that. I am as youngman must learn a lot from you. And it's true that flowers always create enthusiasm. I hope your plan succes and Happy new year. Gid bless you

·

Thank you very much. I plan on breaking through 100 years old and hope to continue to be as active as I can. Long ways off so lots to do. A friend of mine who is around 25 years younger than me asked "don't you ever stop being busy?" My answer is NO! I always have many more things I have yet to catch up on or to try.

Happy new year sir

Thank you very much. Happy New Year! Now this photo looks like a nice place to escape some of the cold winter months. I did spend a few years in my youth in a semi-tropical area. When temperatures started dropping toward 21 C, the locals broke out their winter jackets.

Happy new year sir.
I like THIS all flowers sir

Thank you very much. Happy New Year!

Hello @r2cornell, nice to meet you again. today you show a lot of pictures and tell about the activities that you have done. I really want to see snow. Hopefully one day I will have a lot of money and go on vacation to the city where there is snow.
I think that with lots of snow it will be more fun. but it's also difficult if there is a lot of snow. as you say, you have to plow snow before it rains. and I also like the flowers that you take. also with the cake you made. everything looks good.

hopefully in 2019 you will be given health by God, and protection from him. and hopefully in 2019 the price of steem will increase.

This flower was in a package of wildflower seeds. Not sure what flower it is. It is only around 12 centimeters tall. Macro-photography really brings out the beauty

Thank you very much!!! :-))

Schneeschieben kann wirklich belasteten sein, wenn Zuviel herunter kommt. Vor ein paar Jahren hatten wir 2m Schnee innerhalb von 2 Wochen. Das war das reinste Chaos.

·

Ich habe einen alten Tracotr, der mir bei den meisten helfen kann, um mir Zugang zu Scheune, Nebengebäuden und natürlich zur Einfahrt zu sichern. Ich habe immer noch einen guten Teil des Schaufelns. 2m in 2 Wochen klingt wie ein paar rauer Winter. Gegen Ende dieser Art von Winter wird es ein bisschen schwer zu ertragen. Aber ich mag immer noch Winter.

Mind-blowing photography @r2cornell

Thank you very much.

really amazing this pic sir

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Happy New Year 🙂 Every photography is very good. I appreciate your outstanding work.
