So sorry about the graininess of the photos. Can you believe that I took these at 2 in the afternoon? The sun was already about to set and I just was having a block with figuring out how to get past the low-light. (Practice, practice and more practice. Eventually I'll get this photography thing figured out. I will admit that I wasn't too keen on taking time to figure it out today, I'd forgotten my gloves and my fingers were freezing by the time I got the tripod set up. My hair also hates me, my bangs just won't cooperate this past couple days and I end up with funky weird hair like this. (I know, life changing and so important.)
I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving, my family gets together every year and it was so nice to see everyone in one place again. I'm lucky that most family lives up here and we're lucky that Evan's family lives in the same state. (It's hard seeing family outside of Alaska, you either have to fly over Canada to the lower 48 or make the long drive, so seeing family outside is usually a once every few years occasion ) We all just ate and then sat around and talked, everyone was pretty wiped out from how busy this year has been, it seems like it's really been non stop so far.
I know I always talk about the weather but it warranted a little mention, it has been insanely warm! Last winter at Thanksgiving it was almost -50 below and this year it was above zero! Everyone in town is pretty blown away how how nice it has been this year, after that super cold winter last year and our chilly summer and fall, we were all sure we were in for a doozy of a winter. Instead, it's been pretty moderate.
Allright, that's enough from me, I promise. No more weather. Instead, how about this cute little pond? Even though Fairbanks is the second largest city in Alaska and is considered fairly metropolitan for most of us, it still has huge patches of woods, ponds and rivers throughout town with buildings and some streets thrown in. This little pond is right along side the slew and is a great little spot for wildlife, I saw a little river otter along the banks just last month and when the water is open, there's always tons of ducks. The water is pretty shallow there's a nice little bank so it's a fun spot for the kids to bring their little poles and fish. Ill have to come back on a day when when the light is better, it's such a pretty spot.
