I am just starting to see the tops of these beginning to poke through. It won’t be long now before those and more are up and adding color to the drab landscape. I am in desperate need for some color to help yank me out of the funk I’ve been in the last several weeks. I am finally ready to see the end of winter even though it feels wrong to not have gotten much of any kind of snow this season. One of the reasons I love the area we live in is because we get to fully experience all of the seasons, but it has felt like all we got out of winter this year was cold, weird and dreary. I am done with that. Bring me some warmth and some color please.
Yet another view that I have lost to progress and construction. It makes me sad and want to move, but there are so many other things that we like about where we live that we put up with it. I do wonder, and often at that, if that tolerance is worth all those other things.
One of the things I loved about this image was the fact that it looked like water in a stream or river. It has that same feel of movement over obstacles, but in reality it is just the way the water froze in combination with a little bit of sleet.
We had a second round of ice come through. Thankfully neither one was bad enough to cause the kind of damage that previous storms have caused. This time it was just enough to keep the kids home from school and Hubby working from home. Even then, it isn’t going to last long as we are already starting to melt. I’m glad I got out and got my photos taken when I did or I would have missed out. Continue reading “Still Iced Over”
It always amuses me that Mother Nature likes to contradict the forecasters so thoroughly. They said we really wouldn’t get much, but we ended up with enough to close schools and coat pretty much everything. At least it stopped before it got bad enough to bring down power lines.
Sadly, my battery died on my camera before I got all I wanted to get. Between that and trying damn hard to get frostbite on my fingers and nose, I had to come in for a while. BG (did I mention my girl is starting to get into photography?) and I will both be going back out once we warm back up and my battery is charged again . So many pretties to capture!
This is an older one, but I may get a chance to see some of this again soon if the weather decides to go that direction. I don’t really want to hope because of all the problems associated with it, but the potential for some amazing images will not be passed up if it happens.
I’m learning through the repeated ripping open of old wounds that when you cut toxic relationships from your life, for whatever reason, and no matter who that person is, it is sometimes never over.
