Star Trails and Northern Lights…

Last night’s buzz was that there was a pretty good possibility of seeing northern lights, which is something I’ve been wanting to try to shoot for a while now.  I’ve also wanted to try shooting some star trails, so here are my first attempts…IMG_1989-Edit

The bright green glow from the northern lights…IMG_1995-Edit-2IMG_2004-Edit

I thought these were pretty fun to do and can’t wait to do some more the next clear night and throughout lambing season.  :)

Gorgeous Winter Sunset…

My husband and I went for a walk the other night, the drive-way had de-iced and there was very little mud.  We walked a couple of miles and headed home and we were rewarded with this wonderful sunset…IMG_0591

Just starting to get some good color…

Lambing…

We had a surprise lambing while we were gone on our trip over the weekend…IMG_0531

She was even born on Valentine’s Day…and it’s the letter “H”‘s year for naming lambs…so we couldn’t resist naming this little girl Heart!                   IMG_0524

The mama is one of our Suffolk ewes and daddy, we are thinking is one of our Icelandic rams!  An unknown breeding must have happened before we separated our sheep last fall.IMG_0537

But she’s awfully sweet and like the looks of her.  :)IMG_0543

We were glad that our older kids were at home.  When they went out to feed in the afternoon she was dried off and had a full tummy.  :)  Thank goodness she is half Icelandic to give her some vigor.

IMG_0528Does this mean that Spring is here officially?
