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
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.
We may still get snow. Maybe even some ice. Considering the weather this last year, either wouldn't surprise me at all. What we won't be seeing again, or at least I hope we won't as green things are starting to poke out of the ground, are the crazy low temps required for me to be… Continue reading Last Bubble Of The Season
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.
Yesterday, I got the majority of the materials I had planned to get to start the first part of building the recessed area in my craft room. Unfortunately, the store we went to didn't have enough of one of the boards I needed, so I'm off to a different store today to get the rest.… Continue reading Drip
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 don't think this qualifies as an icicle. Whatever it technically is, it is kind of pretty. Definitely interesting.
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!
Under normal circumstances, there isn't any glass in this house that manages to form ice crystals. Mostly because everything is well insulated and the indoor temps are just too much for the ice to overcome. Apparently that isn't the case today with our front glass storm door. I think it must be in part because… Continue reading Visit From Jack Frost
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
