First Snowfall for 2021 (Photo Collage)
We had our first “real” snowfall for the year. There was a small amount of snow that fell one day in December, but not really enough to make it count.

Photography: Fantasy World of Trees
I had some fun the other day in our local park photographing trees. Once I was finished, I took the color from the photos and added purples and blues – creating an entirely new tree that could be inside a fantasy world in a story book…. It is nice to know, we can takeContinue reading “Photography: Fantasy World of Trees”
Photography: Sunset Moments in May
I took advantage of some 80 degree weather in our area today and took some beautiful sunset shots… There was even some great timing when a train passed on by and even an Amish buggy…
