I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou Lord, only makest me dwell in safety...Psalms 4:8
-----------------------------

The old tractor
Is at rest for now.
Where It will keep
And peacefully sleep
Covered in snow.
Poetry by me AJP
--------------------

We had about 6 inches of snow overnight so of course I had to get out and trudge through it to take pictures...I picked this one out as my favorite for today. It was very bright outside which allowed me to stop down by using manual focus. The white snow otherwise does fool the meter.

Focal length 55 mm.

F/16

1/100 shutter speed

ISO 280

    The tractor stands out very nicely against the fresh snow and trees. I love snowy winter scenes like this, it gives everything a fresh new look. A lovely capture!

    JanElle took the words right out of my fingers. Well done. We didn't get the few flakes they hinted at.
