Winter Yard Art

Antique Rake

Plants Featuring Winter Interest in My Yard

Gardeners (my good friend Peter) will tell you, for winter interest, not to trim or cut down plants.  I also leave my yard art to create a artistic feel to my boring yard in the winter.

I decide not convert to sepia or black and white, I love the colors of leaves, texture of the bark and plants. I think my photography mentor would have been pleased with the first shot...I am :).

Early Morning, Moon, Fresh Fallen Show (More Pajama Photo Work)

I woke up very early, taking a returned package to my mail box for our mail lady's pick up. Turning around walking back down the driveway I looked UP and saw the most beautiful scenery.  I ran back into the house and grabbed my new camera and lens.

There was no enhancment to the color, what you see is what I saw...breath taking winter scenery.

Playing With My New Camera and Wide Angle Lens

I receive for Christmas a Canon 40D and 17-40 wide angle lens.  I will be posting a few of the images in the next couple of days.

I have not been able to really get out and take pictures, my husband Bob had knee replacement surgery two weeks ago.  He is doing great and in the near future will be able to go out hiking with me.  He will be using my other camera...what fun to look forward to.

Snow Images

I wanted to take a few images of snow, since I had a few requests.  The snow is now above my knees, walking was not easy but still refreshing to get outside for a few minutes. I need a dog sled to get around now <grinning>.

More SNOW today and shoveling :).

Old Sugar House

Olde Tyme Print

On the way home from CT, many times we would pass an old sugar house.  Either the lighting is poor, wrong time of day, too much traffic to enable us to stop....but on our return trip home, Thanksgiving weekend I lucked out.

The old sugar house is on Rt. 10, NH.

First Major Snow

Black and White


We had our first major snowstorm which meant....dress warm, put on my high top boots, load up my camera and take a hike on the golf course. (I need snow shoes, the snow was very deep and hard to walk in). I was outside for about two hours, loving every minute and I will do this more often.

While out in the snow, I was trying to remember instructions my old mentor, shared when taking images of the snow.  I realized after this shoot I need to step up my F-Stop....I think that will help cutting down the blue snow.  I will have  practice this winter for sure.

Back On The Farm

We took back roads when visitng CT, seeking out scenic areas for images.  I was luck to find a back road and farm. 

 CT is certainly is a very pretty state.

CT Old Barn

Color Image

My Olde Tyme version.  Check out my other Olde Tyme prints I am selling.

Thanksgiving weekend we were in CT.  Returning from our Grandson's hockey tournament, we came across an old barn, really in not too bad of shape.
