A Few Winter Raindrops

It’s picture time again!  I was thrilled to be able to get out a couple times this week and capture some beautiful, nature shots. However, my fingers, nose, toes protested just a bit to the cold.  The beauty I was able to capture took my breath away.  When I’m out taking pictures, I feel so close to God.  His glorious majesty is all around me and it is during those moments my heart and soul worship Him.

This weeks Scavenger Hunt Items:  Sunset, Black & White, A Day in My Life, Four, Colorful



This particular evening I was in the middle of dinner preparation and just happened to glance out the window. I ran to my room grabbed my camera, threw on my crocs and a heavy flannel shirt and flew out the door.  I raced across the frozen ground twisting my ankle only once and almost losing my shoes a few times.  I half walked/jogged a funny pace with my toes curled to keep my shoes on, trying to beat the retreating sun.  I finally got past the tree line and to the field where I could capture some of the fleeting beauty.



Black & White

The other morning my son rushed in from doing my chores to tell me to grab my camera, because there were some raindrops I would probably want to capture. Oh Boy, was he right! He came along with me to be my guide. I loved having him with me pointing out all the great photo opportunities.  He has such a good eye for spotting things that for most people would just blend in.

A Day in My Life

Tea blankets spread all around the living room ready for an impromptu tea party. (Plus I wanted to get a picture of her wearing the hat I had made her for Christmas.) A VERY daily event at our house!




I promise I didn’t eat all of those….just a couple!





This clump of rose hips was one of my son’s finds. He spotted them hiding out in a clump of vines and trees. PERFECT, is what I think!
