This is the never-ending winter in Virginia, but I’m trying to remain optimistic and get out and shoot as much as possible when time and weather permit.
Due to the poor conditions this weekend, however, I actually stayed inside most of the time and finished preparing our 2013 taxes. If you live in the United States or are familiar with the U.S. tax code, you’ll understand why I just had to document this monumental day.
Taxes are due on April 15 each year, and today is February 10. I’ve just achieved a personal best and shattered my previous record, which was late March. If I were in the “Tax Preparation Olympic Games,” I’d probably be in medal contention!
I pulled out some images from last week’s hike in West Virginia to edit this afternoon during a break from work. To have finished the taxes when snow is still on the ground is so unusual I had to put the two moments together in time on my blog. It will likely never happen again!
This photograph was edited in Color Efex Pro with Detail Extractor and the Fuji Velvia filters.
This is a great photo, winter and its wintry ways looks so much better on pictures 😉
Yes, I totally agree! Harsh winter weather is not fun when you have to take care of horses! 🙂
🙂 Or when your boots get stuck in soup like muddy fields!
Yes, that too!! 🙂
I am impressed.. .and envious!
Well, I must admit I had some motivation since this year spring break is the week taxes are due. I knew I couldn’t wait until the last minute and also enjoy any kind of vacation!
You’re certainly in the gold medal contention. 🙂
Though I have my tax documents ready, I haven’t even given thought about starting it yet.
There’s not been a whole lot of nice weather here this winter, so being outside (other than skiing) hasn’t been high on the priority list!
Oh jeez..thanks for reminding me to stop being outside and get indoors and work on my taxes. Love these !
Thanks so much! Just an FYI. That Annapolis Photography Workshop is happening again in April, and I’m planning to attend. We will be hanging out in your neighborhood. It would be wonderful to meet you in person!
