Snowy Pond

I like snow, and it takes me a while to get tired of it. It can be really pretty, and it provides lots more photo opportunities than a brown dead winter landscape. However, even I can have too much of it, which is unfortunate given the “blizzard-like conditions” they’re forecasting (and I just looked out my window and it is starting to sleet… sigh…) But before it gets nasty outside, here’s a shot of the nice pretty (and not too deep!) snow on the pond before the big bad winter storm.

Frosty Things

It’s still cold outside unfortunately, but lately the morning frost has been really neat looking.  It was very fluffy and almost feather-like a couple of mornings ago.  It makes you want to brave the cold and go out to photograph it (which is good, because I’m getting tired of snow).

One Year Of Vision – Favorite Monthly Photos

It’s the 365th day of my blog! 197 posts, 17 categories, 291 tags and 1274 views ago I started an attempt at posting a daily photo.  It didn’t stay a photo every day, but it’s by far the longest and most updated I’ve ever kept my website. In honor of this historic occasion, I’ve decided to post my favorite photo from each of the previous 12 months as a recap.  There were months were it was tough to choose, and months where I wasn’t a big fan of anything (or barely took anything).  It took a bit of combing through the archives (and a long post), but here they are:
