Soaking up warm light
and sunbaked November images
for the
long, cold, blue winter ahead ~ 
with an Impressionist's eye,

and also, in a selective sharp focus manner.

Giving thanks for a wonderful family, friends, health, creative time,
and the design talents of Caroline at Nowordz Photography,
for my new header!

Wishing you a happy, creative, and 
thankful week!

Fence Sitting

We are sitting on the fence between seasons.
Autumn's brilliance has faded into mellow, rusty leaf carpets and 
pale oak leaves tenaciously hanging onto the trees.

While, winter has been showing her face here and there - 
frost, sleet, and big, showy flakes.

The fence sitting won't last much longer.....

Wishing you a happy and creative week!

Frosty Morn

"In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary."  ~ Aaron Rose

This time of year often finds us waking up to a frost encrusted world.
It looks to me like Mother Nature has added a sugar coating to everything!
So, a couple mornings last week found me out photographing our yard and
what's left of my garden.

These experiences made me think about the accuracy of photographer, Aaron Rose's quote.
My equation would read something like this -
Scraggly, unassuming garden + Frost + Sparkling, morning sunlight =
Spectacular fantasy land, especially from a macro perspective!

Eventually, the brilliant sunlight melted all the frost crystals 
resulting in water droplets everywhere.
More magic.

Finally, I left the garden with my treasure trove of images;
ready for the warmth of my kitchen and some hot tea.

Wishing you just the right light, at the right time,
 to make everything extraordinary!

Magical Light

Today, I'm a guest contributor at the Mortal Muses site.
The theme is Light Fantastic and I'm musing about magical light.
I hope that you can stop by and say, Hi!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend basking in the 
beauty of the light that surrounds us!
