Waiting on winter

This year I invested in some serious winter boots. The old ones were still comfortable, but most of my footwear fits best just before falling apart. They couldn't support me standing still for hours on ice or frozen concrete, even when new.
So below are my new kicks, with the old to compare. Same boot size.
Come on, Winter, don't disappoint me!

Super Moon/Blood Moon fails to show...

I had set up my gear for an evening of painting the rare lunar event, but cloud cover spoiled the view.
Still, an evening out painting is an evening out painting.
