Grey Days Make Fall Colours Shine

I’m so happy to be back posting after taking yet another month off  from this lovely blog circle.  My apologies to my dear friends for my less than stellar participation.  Last month was busy with travel, so no complaints from me.  When I returned from my trip to Berlin and Paris at the end of…

    That first one of the reflection only is SO AMAZING! It looks like a watercolor impressionist painting.ReplyCancel

    The images are so beautiful, Susan. I am so glad that you were able to capture these beautiful places for this month’s project.

    And I am happy that you were able to travel to Europe last month. So cool.ReplyCancel

The Way I Was Really Meant to Photograph Flowers

It’s been a few months since I’ve shared anything here.  Life gets busy,  not bad just busy, but sometimes with that hectic pace it becomes harder to find those moments to get out and do what brings us peace.  Travel, photographing and editing a wedding and T.C.B (taking care of business) not to mention near…

    Sue, these are beautiful! Your focus is so perfect in these 🙂ReplyCancel

  • IrisAugust 16, 2017 - 9:28 pm

    Oh my word, those are all stunning, Sue.

    You are right, shooting indoors where you can single out one subject, in the ‘wild’, you really have to watch the surroundings of your subject.ReplyCancel

The Early Signs of Spring {Freelensed}

We had a beautiful couple of days at the lake over the Easter long weekend.  Sunny and warm after so. much. rain.  (In case you didn’t know this about Canadians we LOVE to talk about the weather).  Anyway, as you may know, I love to wander around with my camera and see what I’ll find….

    So miss your work on the Serenity Project Sue.  There is just something about your photography in this project that does indeed project me straight into a sense of beautiful peace and calm.  This is such a gift.  ReplyCancel

    • adminOctober 23, 2018 - 12:17 pm

      That is the sweetest thing to hear, Wendy. Thank you so much. I do miss participating in the Serenity Project but truth be told, I wasn’t feeling serene in my life and was having a hard time slowing down and seeing the peace and calm. I need to get back into that frame of mind.ReplyCancel

Alone in the Woods

I used to be a winter person,  but something happens when you get older and you realize that winter is hard.  It’s long, dark and cold.   You get cranky that the city hasn’t cleared the sidewalks and you pine for the days when you can leave the house in your flip-flops.  This winter has…

    It does look cool with the snow and the leaves. I am glad that you are enjoying this winter a little. I feel the same way about summers in Arizona.ReplyCancel

    • adminFebruary 16, 2017 - 2:53 pm

      I have to admit, I think your summers are more unbearable than our winters. We can always bundle up. You can only take off so many clothes before you get into trouble.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer CarrFebruary 17, 2017 - 8:38 am

    These are beautiful! I love how much you have been enjoying this winter. It’s so great to see you making time for yourself to just “be.” <3ReplyCancel

  • adminFebruary 17, 2017 - 8:46 am

    Thank you, Jenny! I really have been. John asked if I was going to take George with me and I said, “No way!!” I was thinking of you though. You would have loved it.ReplyCancel

  • KathyFebruary 17, 2017 - 8:55 am

    Lovely, lovely, lovely! Walking in the quietness of snow is special to me too. I LOVE how you can see mini-snowflakes on the leaves <3ReplyCancel

Stopping the Car and Taking It All In

Well, here we find ourselves in December, a month with 31 days that feels more like 15.   As a terminal procrastinator, I struggle with all of the preparations and hecticness that is the Christmas Season.  Kind of a contradictory statement in a blog post about serenity.  These images were all the result of literally…

      Thank you so much, Wendy.ReplyCancel

  • KathyDecember 22, 2016 - 7:43 am

    I can so relate to the mentally taking pictures when someone is whizzing by the gorgeous scenery. This is why I like to drive! That abstract image is amazing!! Uncanny what a little blowing snow can do! Merry Christmas to you…ReplyCancel

    • adminDecember 24, 2016 - 8:27 pm

      Just a little (lot) of snow on the windshield. Love that this isn’t a double exposure or an overlay in Photoshop. Merry Christmas to you too, Kathy. <3ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer CarrDecember 22, 2016 - 8:23 am

    Beautiful! I love the depth in the images. It makes me want to bundle up and take a walk down your snow covered path. My favorite is the snowy windshield, though. It’s abstraction (word?!) is incredible!ReplyCancel

    • adminDecember 24, 2016 - 8:25 pm

      We’d love to have you join us up here to walk through the woods! And yes, I do believe that abstraction is a word.ReplyCancel

    I cannot choose a favorite. Love them all!ReplyCancel

    I love your winter imagery, Sue! I love the snow (unless I have to drive in it) and the magic it adds to the surroundings. I am in love with the second image – gorgeous light and composition!ReplyCancel

    • adminJanuary 8, 2017 - 4:07 pm

      Thanks so much, Nina!! I hate driving in the snow too, but even worse is the ice. Winter truly is beautiful and I remind myself how lucky I am to live in a place with four incredible seasons.ReplyCancel
