School with a View

These pictures were taken about 8:30 this morning from the front door of our school. I thought the sky was quite amazing. You can't tell, but the trees are covered with ice and the sun shining on the branches was spectacular.

On the other side of the building, where my office is, the male cardinal made his appearance, a brilliant spot of red against the sparse leafless trees. I tried to get a shot of him, but he didn't show up through the window, and from that distance. Not to be a stalker or anything, but I hope to capture him at some point.

I've been thinking about putting up a bird feeder outside my window. I'm afraid, though, that it might get too distracting. Then again, there are moments when I need the distraction =) I'm lucky in the view, summer or winter.

Photos: Looking straight out of the front door; looking to the right towards the entrance to the school; looking to the left towards the English (my) classroom and the playground.

Lovely photo images. Don't you love it when you are at the right place at the right time and have a digital camera?

Hey, it is okay to be a bird stalker! Lovely photos, too. We didn't get the ice until last night, but looks like it will melt away this morning.

IEG--Yes, I love having a digital camera! Think of all the pretty sights we missed before the advent of such a thing!

Sandy--We're bracing for another storm tomorrow night and another one Saturday night. All of a sudden, winter is here with a vengence!

Your pictures are beautiful. I love my window feeders at work, and so does everyone else! Some distractions are worthwhile :-)

Beautiful. How lovely for you to look out at that from work.
