Winter ponds

On the final day of 2022, I’m looking at some more images from our recent stay in Texas. It did get pretty cold, but the Dallas-Fort Worth area only caught the tailing edge of the winter storm that caused so much misery in the eastern U. S. We had ice but no snow; and by the time we caught our […]

I wasn’t entirely satisfied with some of the pictures I shot with my phone on my earlier visit; this time I used my Canon SL2, and I think […]
