It seems like there is always snow on my birthday. I'm sure that isn't the reality, but I remember so many times over the years when I've had to change or cancel plans because the weather was too bad to get out. This year decided to follow tradition and gift us with snow. We didn't… Continue reading Snow Day And The Last Of The 40s
For anyone that wants to play along, my only suggestions (suggestions, not rules!) are: The color is the dominate focus in the image as opposed to a small spot in a lot of other colors. Drop a comment so I can follow along on your color journey. That's it! I hope you play along and… Continue reading Color Series: White Day 3
White will be the last of the regular color series. I will start a slightly different phase after this. For anyone that wants to play along, my only suggestions (suggestions, not rules!) are: The color is the dominate focus in the image as opposed to a small spot in a lot of other colors. Drop… Continue reading Color Series: White Day 1
This was what I woke up to today. The next couple of days we are going to see some below freezing temps to try and kill off whatever is blooming right now that today's snow didn't. *Sigh* And I was so enjoying the warmer days and the pretty flowers.
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
I wasn't going to go out. It was still stupidly cold. But... it was flurrying a bit and those flakes were the perfect kind to try and get actual snowflakes and the sun was out a bit and... of course I went out. It really was kind of perfect conditions to get snowflake shots. The… Continue reading Oh So Flaky!
Of all the photos I got the other day, this is probably one of the best at the almost fully frozen stage. Almost all of the ones I took started to get too blurry by that point because of the transparency of the bubbles and the angle I was at. I don't think I will… Continue reading Feathered Ice
Yesterday's attempt at getting some frozen bubble shots was pretty successful and I learned a few new things. One of the bigger things is that I really need to be wearing my reading glasses when I'm taking photos anymore. I struggle more and more often to see if I'm actually in focus or I have… Continue reading Frozen Soap Bubble
I really should be getting outside to try for more frozen bubble shots, but I'm not sure that is going to happen today. As is typical for me, cake mode is followed by crash mode and my energy and motivation levels are near zero today. The one thing I'd like to try and get done… Continue reading Snow Coated
I'll be rushing around like crazy trying to get this cake done in time for candles later today as I didn't get nearly as much done yesterday as I'd hoped. I have no progress pics this go round because BG has insisted on keeping it a surprise, so pics will wait until she has seen… Continue reading Snow Drenched
I had to brave the bitterly cold temps yesterday to get a couple of much needed things to work on BG's cake. I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to get some photos of the amazing effect the snow was having on the trees, so I drug my camera along with me. The roads… Continue reading Frosted World
This one was the only decent one I managed to grab yesterday. I think the fact that it was snowing is why I struggled to get a decent shot. The snowflakes kept popping the bubbles before they could really start to freeze. That and I wasn't positioned well to get a good, clear line to… Continue reading Frozen Bubble In The Snow
This is pretty much the view today with a beautiful, but windy snowfall. I'm hoping the roads stay decent as I'm supposed to get the inspection done today. It is such a pretty snow so far I just want to snuggle in with a cup of coffee by the window and watch.
I'm trying really hard not to feel too satisfied that I was right and the contractor guy was WAY wrong, but... I am totally satisfied by that fact. The electrical box that they installed for my main light was NOT in fact a standard box no matter how much the guy swore it was, but… Continue reading Snowy Nest
