|In simple terms even I can understand, the photographic concept of depth of field|
means that either your subject OR your background is out of focus. In this example,
it's the background. The foreground is a bit of zebra grass covered with FROST!
Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.
