It’s supposed to be winter now but the weather is that weird in-between warm/cold and nothing is frozen. It’s wet, muddy, chilly, damp and blah out there. It’s hard to find nice things to take photos of when the entire world feels like it’s comprised of dead fields, bare trees, and mud. Monochrome helps.
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.
Remember what I said about winter being a lot of bright, white, blinding snow and sticks? Proof below. (Still beautiful!)
I have to admit, these trees look pretty cool when they’re in stick-mode. How shallow of me to expect beauty to come in only one form. 🙂
This little family warmed my heart.
Quiet and gentle above. Words of wisdom below.
Mom and dad, or best of friends.
…this little guy was picking fights across the fence but the two above never left his side.

Everything can be so simple when you stop to break it down. Protect the ones you love; do not let anyone convince you to be someone you’re not, and above all, love what you have and who you are in the moment. Every moment.
I don’t like messing with photos too much, particularly the clean, simple ones like landscapes that capture lines and texture almost as if you’re seeing it in 3D – natural beauty can do that without the help of a filter. Somehow, though, this accidental flip of the spectrum while editing made me need to save this one.
I don’t know if it’s the halo or the eerie way the trees in the background seem to vanish and then reappear depending on the angle you view it at…but I like it. After all, this blog is supposed to be about new perspectives. This is certainly one that fulfills that promise.
I was out every day through the storm that recently swept through North America causing havoc everywhere it went. So much snow came down it was amazing…haven’t seen this much since I was a little girl. Here’s some loveliness to share from my adventures trekking through over two feet of snowfall.
I don’t know exactly what it is about rust and old mechanical things that captivates me so, but, I tend to find that if I just go with the shot that catches my eye, not the perfectly balanced and perfectly lit moment in time, the photos come out in a way that makes me feel like I can show you what I see. That’s a pretty cool concept, right there. 🙂
