ideal weather

ideal weather 

January 8, 2014


This week's challenge is ideal weather, selected by Yours Truly!  Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

I like it a little cooler than many of my friends.  If I may be blunt, I just do not care to sweat.  But when the midday sun yields to a cool breeze, everything is juuuust fine.  I also like unseasonably warm days in cooler seasons.  You know--those days when we can get by with just a light jacket, but as I said before, days without perspiration.  I hope you like these shots just as much as I enjoyed taking them.  It wasn't difficult at all... no sweat.

Neat capture Craver, that heat is sounding pretty good right now.

I'm with you on the no sweat. When the temps hit triple digits for a week or two here in the summer, we see a lot of movies. But the ideal depends on what you are wanting to do. Right now, we are wanting to go snowshoeing. There may be enough snow at our favorite place, but it is four hours to get there so we always stay at least one night. And finding that two days without doctor appointments and other commitments and with decent road conditions just hasn't happened yet. But the snowshoes and ski pants are loaded and ready when the moment arrives.

That is a serene scene in your header. A beautiful place for a stroll (and looks like ideal weather)!

Christine said...

Your header is beautiful! I know that park--love the little creek. I'm with you--I'd rather walk a trail, or hike to waterfalls, with as little sweat as possible. ;)

Beautiful photos. My ideal temperature in 70.

I think you did a great job picturing ideal weather. I couldn't find a thing about which to disagree with what you said.

Craver...you have become such a fine photographer. I love to look at each of your shots. Each one speaks something differently to me.
I have a favorite among these, and you will probably be surprised as to which one it is. I love the one of the fence near your brother's house.
