This Bed Is Just Right


"Hank?  You in there?"

That's a good 5' drift behind the barn.  The water tank is under the hump on the left.


"Yeah, but I rather not be."

I opened the inside door and let him out.



This bed is much better.







Sweet Woody :-)

I took some really nice and memorable snow pictures this morning.  We've got at least 16" out there now and that's pretty amazing for Kentucky.  And should be documented.  Well.  I didn't trust my manual settings and instead set my camera to "snow"...and I am crushed.  The pictures and video are all way too dark, way too contrasty, gross.  

I salvaged a few of these as best I could, but I'm hoping I can get some new ones of Tilly, Kate and Comby out in the snow.  Any time a cat is willing to follow you to the barn in that much snow, someone should be there to take a picture.  A good picture.  Sigh.

I like these photos! Can't believe Hank laying in the snow! I also really like the snowflakes contrasting with the dark barn in the first shot.

Wow! Glad you're faring alright in the epic snow. Watching Hank made me dizzy!

Tee said...

I actually thought the pictures you posted are nice. How many times did he circle?!

Hugs and kisses to Hank, love the pictures, especially the video, did you count how many times he had to spin around to make his bed perfect? I notice he had to take a break in his spins to check out something off to the left.

I think the photos are great. My thought is that the person who designed the snow setting has never seen snow in person. Hope you have a January thaw soon!

OMG, am dizzy from watching Hank. Glad he finally settled :) what a PILE...................

I think these are lovely photos! And the Hank video is so typical of dogs, isn't it?
Sadly, your 'record snow fall' is just an average winter storm where we are *sigh* but I certainly can empathize how much more PITA it makes it for you all. :-)

I like these photos. They're not like your regular ones, but they have a nice edge to them. Sorta artsy. :)

Comby out in the snow ... yes, please! And how does Weaslie even get around in those drifts!? Do you have to carry her? :-)

Lori Skoog said...

Ha ha ha ha ho ho ho ho! I knew you would enjoy the experience. Snow bliss. The picture you sent me (below) is now on my blog! Thank you for sharing.

Marianne said...

I just love looking at the pictures of all of your animals. It really makes me smile while I appreciate how much effort it takes to take care of everyone. Spring pictures up soon!!

Hank, you make me smile!

Hank has to make it just right! I have never used the snow setting on my camera. I read something the other day.. I think it is called Sunny 16 F 16 1/125 and Iso 100 and go from there. I need to try it myself and then program it as a fav in my camera. Stay warm :)

Ed said...

That Hank is a dog among sheep. For snow pics I use aperature mode WB set to cloudy or sunny and the ISO at 800. It works for me..:-)

Awesomesauce!!! Beautiful photos!!!!

Capturing the moment is what counts. And what a moment between Hank and Woody. Love all around.

Shirley said...

Wow that's a lot of snow to get all at once! Loved the video, but it was making me dizzy! Silly boy. What a gentle soul Hank is. At least, around his sheep, wouldn't want to be a coyote and face Hank.
