Our View in Mid-January

The days are getting longer. I took these pictures around 5 PM, and a month ago it was already dark at that time.

If you look carefully, you can see geese taking off. (You can see a larger version of the photo by clicking on it first.)  Canada Geese squawk before they fly off so that gives me a few seconds to point my camera at them. 


  1. Great photos Linda and thanks for the tip on the geese. I will have to pay more attention. Happy weekend to you :)

  2. Pretty sky captures, great shots of the geese. Happy weekend!

  3. Very nice, I saw a huge flock taking off the other day that took 20 minutes for all to take flight

  4. Oh Linda
    Great pictures.
    Spectacular views. Beautiful.
    Greetings from Polish.

  5. Beautiful shots! It'll be a few months before we hear the squawking of Canada geese here.

  6. The geese do a lot of honking as they come into the pond behind my daughter's house. Glad for longer days. :)

  7. Nice shots, Linda. I'm ready for those longer days.
