Farm-road walk — Hill Road and Curtis Road, South Danby
There are places around town where, if I stand in the right spot on a snowy day, I can photograph the hikers in an all-white setting like this — I really enjoy the effect — for some reason, makes me think of a group of the elect heading up into paradise — especially when there’s a bright glow in the sky like here.
Below is the same view from the other direction — nice scene but doesn’t look like paradise ….
This is Hill Road, on a section that’s plowed ….
I have an extremely small camera — including small buttons used to change settings — when it’s cold (it was in the low teens), I work the buttons wearing gloves — this is very clumsy and I inadvertently changed the settings so all the photos came out blue — without realizing it
Official head count: NineH, three D
We now have a new Google Group that I use to send out details of our midweek hikes — out of the blue, Cornell blocked 13 hikers who have Cornell e-mail accounts from receiving this hike announcement — probably reduced the turnout a bit
