A favourite of mine. It always makes me feel so peaceful, getting to witness nature work her magic turning summer into fall.
I came upon some photos I took last fall. I don’t remember the colours being so vibrant but wow, I’m glad I didn’t delete this folder without flipping through the files first. 🙂
…and then there’s the lake……
These all bring on a feeling of silence and peace; just the wind in the trees and the soft lapping water as the gentle tide pulls the waterline back from the land.
Here, I could stay forever. Aren’t photos incredible? The moment of the memory captured with the image. Pure magic.
A little digital magic makes the scene dance with light. Fun ways to spend a few minutes making something no one has ever seen.
I wish I could project my words this way, visual to anyone who wanted to see. Photos are another form of words I suppose. There is something wonderful about everyone being able to interpret what the see without my own thoughts and emotions clouding or guiding their own.
He was so far away that my telephoto hard a hard time capturing the details here so a little editing of colour and sharpness helped this photo along. I was captivated as this hawk circled the fields hunting for some lunch on the first sunny day we had in weeks.
Watching him ride the wind currents was incredible. The dive was the most spectacular, of course, but it was so quick I didn’t have time to adjust to capture it on camera. Some things in life are meant for your eyes to see alone, I suppose.
This one shows the very limited visibility on the roads at times though the storm. It’s hard enough to navigate the snowy, icy roads when can see what’s in front of you. For me, I find it all so captivating I’d rather pull over and shoot photos than drive anywhere, any day.
The spots on the photo are snow that landed on my lens. I quite like the effect they created. Just look at that sun trying to break through!
It’s been cold here, really cold. Then, a few days later it rose above freezing and the snow we had melted and flooded the fields. Then, a few days later it got cold again. Not quite as cold as it had been, but definitely colder than it was. So what does a heavy snowfall (we had so many inches it was being measured in feet) look like after it melts, freezes, melts and freezes again?
This! How incredible is that? Just weather and wind (along with the help of some uneven ground and corn stalks) and magic appears. Cold magic, but beautiful none the less. 🙂
Need I say more. ♥️

All I had to do was ask.
This guy was completely ignoring me until I asked for just one smile. Just one. This is what he gave me. Lol
