I haven't had much time for any photography that isn't the portraits I'm doing for BG's senior portfolio, but I did take a few minutes to grab this shot out my front door. I only get this view for a couple of days each year, some years I don't get it at all as they… Continue reading Full Fall Color
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
Revisiting Frozen Fog Trees
This is another one from a couple of years ago. The fog coated everything much heavier than this last one we got. It also formed a little differently and didn't produce the dramatic spikes this last one did either. It is kind of amazing how different these same events can manifest.
This year has proven that I really wouldn't do well living in an area that didn't get any snow. Other than the one extremely odd pre-Halloween snow, we have missed every single snow producing system that has made it way by. We haven't even had a flurry. A friend in NY posted a photo on… Continue reading Snowy Dreams
Sunset Through The Leaves
Stripped Bare: Black & White
We went for a walk and a drive around this weekend. The hope was that the trees were in full color and to get some photos. Of course, where I live, we don't really get a "full color" like you'd see in other areas. We sort of get stages. One week may be the yellow… Continue reading Meandering Path
Twilight Silhouetted Trees
The sky was so pretty last night. Of course, I forgot to take my camera with me to dance, so I had to scurry home and grab it before I could even attempt to capture it. The color fade was so subtle in the east that I couldn't get it to really show on my… Continue reading Twilight Silhouetted Trees
Decent To Better
So, I'm still playing and trying to learn more of the ins and outs of the new software, though I don't have nearly enough time each day to play as much as I'd like. The above image is the altered version of the photo below. I wanted to see how much better I could make… Continue reading Decent To Better
Continuing The Theme
Here is another moody one from the series of photos I got "accidentally". It fits my mood at the moment. Can you believe that my cough is actually worse after having gone to the doctor? And not in that "it sometimes gets worse before it gets better" kind of way, either. For this reason alone,… Continue reading Continuing The Theme
This is actually one from last year. I thought I'd already posted it, but I couldn't find it anywhere. This area is always so pretty if we get a snow like this that coats everything.
More Frozen Fog
This one is from the frozen fog event back in December because I'm still being an extreme hermit.
If I keep posting pictures of snow and winter, do you think it might actually snow? Well, it's worth a try anyway.
Back On Track
Today is the first day that everyone is back to a normal routine after the holidays. Hubby is back to work. The kids are back in school. And it is so quiet in the house. Well, at least it is in between the moments when I'm desperately trying to cough up a lung (thank you… Continue reading Back On Track
I'm not really big on setting major goals or resolutions. I'd rather focus on just noting the things that are important to me to maybe focus on or to try and the things to look forward to. It is part of my need to focus on the positive things rather than the negative. This is… Continue reading Looking Forward
My View Today
And it is stupid cold. If it weren't windy, I could be out trying to photograph frozen bubbles. It is snowing heavy enough that it was a challenge to get a pic of my front Maple that wasn't blurry. I didn't quite manage it. I'm hoping the snow stops soon and gives the streets a… Continue reading My View Today
Black And White Japanese Maple
Perspective & Texture
As of this morning I'm still sitting in limbo on my book. The 24Symbols platform via Draft2Digital still has not managed to get me delisted 10 days after I put in my initial request. I have been off all other platforms with the exception of Kindle since about 8 days ago. I'm not so frustrated… Continue reading Perspective & Texture
