Thanksgiving 2013

My guest, Momo, is a student at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She came to visit for this Thanksgiving Holiday. We started the day with a good breakfast and then went for a hike to my waterfall. The new background picture on the blog was taken today and this following shot is probably the best of the day;

Stone, ice and snow on grass.

and another of Winter’s long shadow.



A standard menu at my house for Thanksgiving includes the following as a minimum;

Roast turkey with my almost world famous sour cream and sage stuffing, mashed potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, cranberry relish and of course, the turkey is served with giblet gravy. Here is a link to show you how to carve a turkey.

Momo is ready for dinner!

    I’m jealous! So wonderful dinner!

    1. Hi Ella,
      The best part of the day was our early morning hike in the forest. It was a very cold morning for this time of year. The wind was blowing and making it even colder, but the sun was shining. The light coating of snow made everything look bright and fresh.
      After dinner we went out for another walk and fortunately, Momo was able to see a few deer in the field behind my house too. It was a little too dark for a picture though.

    Thanks for your meal!!!
    Personally, the best part of the day was walking around near your home. This was the first time to see wild deer, and it was also the first time to see a beautiful sky at night! I hope I can have a good camera to photograph this starry sky and show it to my friends! 😀

    1. Hi Momo,
      I am happy to know you are safely back at Pratt. Thanks for coming to visit. I enjoyed our hike to the waterfall in the morning….it was cold but really beautiful to see the snow before anyone had walked on it.
      Night photography is very difficult. You need to use a tri-pod and long exposure to capture the nigh sky. If you come back in the summertime, you can try again.
