The weather here has been horrendous and it's been warm so my winter pictures are noisier than usual. Plus I've been sick off and on (I think from a tick bite) that either I got from being out taking these pictures or from the dog. My advice along with watching out for dew, clouds, wind, etc watch out for those ticks!
