Out and About
Into the Woods
Winter in the Woods
A “dusting” of snow on the ground and an ivy- covered tree trunk made for a nice photo composition.
A tall evergreen tree backed by a dramatic sky made me realize how much beauty is around us every day, no matter the cold winter weather.
Two Views of a Winter Sunset
I was standing in our backyard when I made this photo. It’s nice not to have to travel (even if I could) to capture sunsets like this.
I moved slightly from where I was standing when I made the first photo and saw another beautiful view. It was a nice way to begin a new year.
Photo on Day One
There is a belief among people I know which says: “Whatever good thing one does on the first day of a new year will carry on to each following day in that year.” For me that means I have to make a decent photo on New Years Day, regardless of circumstances, so that my photography over the next 12 months will be rewarding in some way, no matter less-than-desirable challenges that are placed in front of me. Like cold rain soaking river rocks (and me) today in my back yard flower garden.
Last of 2020
The last time I was near this field there were sheep grazing beyond the wire fence. That was last July. When I drove by recently the field was deserted. What caught my eye, however, was not the absence of sheep, but the distant “hollow” on the other side of the field, What was in that hollow I wondered. I have similar questions pertaining to my photography in 2021. What will I discover? Good things I pray.
A cold Winter’s day offered me a nice photo opportunity yesterday as I drove about in a rural area near our home in SW Virginia.
Mixed Winter Colors
Nature’s Christmas Look
Holly berries in the midst of winter’s bare trees.
A very tall Christmas tree I would not want to decorate.
