There were several in this series that I really loved because they all held so many different, clearly distinct shapes of snowflakes. This one gives you a few.
I have to make yet another trip to the store today. This time, it wasn't my fault. I was putting together my table saw stand yesterday, managing to do a whole lot of guessing because the instructions were absolute crap and would have about the same understanding even if I were reading it in the… Continue reading Standing Out In A Crowd
I'm hoping that we are actually done with snow for the season. I saw some points of green poking up in one of my flower beds this morning. That makes me excited for all the color that is coming our way.
This one really stuck out to me. The fact that it was this lone snowflake caught in that space. That it was either broken or partly melted or some combination. That it was determinedly hanging on. That even imperfect, it was still amazingly beautiful. To me, it is one of those images that can hold… Continue reading Beautiful Broken Imperfection
Any bets on whether or not my craft room actually gets finished today like it is supposed to? Yeah, I probably wouldn't take that bet either, but I sure do have my fingers crossed. Supposedly, the doors are getting installed today. One of which I had to change because, shocker! They didn't get what I… Continue reading Broken Snowflake
I've been wanting to play around with a better technique of getting really great shots of individual snowflakes and their crystalline structure. With the snow coming down like crazy and my front porch protected, I thought it'd be a great time to try to play. Unfortunately, my first thought to capture the flakes individually didn't… Continue reading Playing With Snowflakes
I have officially completed all edits and proofreading corrections on my book. Now I'm just waiting for my cover designer to request my files and get started. I will announce a release date as soon as I have a more solid confirmation as to when this will be ready.
Managed a grocery run in between storms. This is getting insane. My kids have been out of school because of weather nearly as often as they have been in school. AND we have yet another round coming later in the week. BG has had her Wednesday dance class canceled 3 consecutive weeks and will FINALLY… Continue reading Flaky
I'll be working on cake the next several days. BG decided that she really did want the pointe costume cake so I'm all in on working on it. It will be another ambitious project, but having done a costume cake twice now, I have some confidence that this will turn out pretty good. I don't… Continue reading Hanging Out
I first experimented with taking photos of frozen bubbles last year. At the time, I was somewhat pleased by the results, especially because I'd never done it before. But, I didn't have my macro lens yet so what I got wasn't actually all that good. When I went to play again the other day and… Continue reading Frozen Bubbles
The snow we got the other day was so perfect. It was crazy cold and the snow wasn't heavy and wet, so what fell was full of perfect snow crystals. This is one of several crazy cool shots that show the intricacies of snowflakes. The shot itself isn't perfect, but I adore that snowflake in… Continue reading Beauty In The Details
Today was perfect weather to play with ice bubbles. Between that and the also perfect snow we got with the crazy low temps, I loaded up on some amazing shots over the last couple of days, but I'm still going through them all. For now, here is one of my favorite bubble shots.
