Winter Wonderland

I finally got out my camera, after several weeks of hiatus. I love doing the weekly Scavenger Hunt over at Ashley’s. It pushes me to find new and different things to photograph. What a great way to learn more about photography and to fine tune the skills I have learned. It’s the perfect set up for any photographer.

This weeks items: Stacked up; Winter wonderland; Sweet; Hole; Frozen

 

Stacked up

On Friday’s we have a relaxed school day. This week my daughter decided a morning paint session was in order for her  school work.

Winter Wonderland

The Wild Rose bushes that can be so pesky during berry picking in the summer, become one of my favorite things to photograph in the winter.  I love the bright, cheery, red/orange set against the white snow.

Sweet (stack)

I originally shot this one for “stack”, but then I never got around to getting a photo for sweet. I figure the stacked chocolates worked for sweet and maybe Ashley will give me bonus points for getting one photo to fit into two categories!

Hole

Along the back-country, dirt road there was a hole in the trees that line the road.  A perfect place to stop and take a photo of this old barn and silo.

Frozen

After a week of upper 40 temperatures, winter finally remembered it was January and gave us temps of 15 degrees. Can you see the frozen sap on the pine cone?
