Good Morning Everyone! Happy Wednesday! Like most of you, I have had just about enough of winter! But, as the winter-spring tug of war begins, I can’t help but look through the photos I have captured this winter and see the beauty in all that fresh fallen snow!
I was lucky enough to have 2 very willing subjects brave 35 freshly fallen centimeters with me back in January! Their bright red jackets and beautiful smiles were the perfect contrast to all that white!
But what’s a girl to do when your subjects just aren’t quite as willing as you had hoped, and they’ve also had it up to here with the snow and no one wants to go out and play?
Look around and challenge yourself!
As I walked into my garage last week on a particularly frigid early morning, this incredibly beautiful frosted window was staring back at me, like a piece of art, courtesy of Mother Nature.
It made the whole garage sparkle. I knew it was fleeting and that by the time I got home from work, the intricate frost would be long gone thanks to the newfound strength of the late winter sun.
So, like any self respecting shutterbug, I ran and grabbed my camera and started shooting!
When I forgot for a moment that the morning’s wind chill was -37 and the snow banks were upwards of 10 feet high, I was really captivated by how beautiful this challenging season can be:
I loved these shots so much, I immediately added a simple seasonal quote and framed my favourite shot, and I stopped complaining about winter, if only for a moment!
