I run by this lone, bare tree a few times a week and I've had plans to photograph it. I'd just been waiting for a more interesting sky before shooting. I finally took my opportunity and pulled over the car on our way past, hopped out and snapped away. My kids think I'm crazy.
Here is the same photo in color. I love the drama of B&W, but this one really shows how lovely the blue sky was that day.
The skiers are ecstatic. There is snow on the mountains at last. We'll need quite a bit more than this smattering before ski season can start, but just seeing some snow makes them happy.
My boys on Halloween evening. I have no idea what the little one was doing. He is the biggest ham.
I mean, really, what is this expression? What a goof.
I am so grateful I joined the 365 day photography challenge. I have really learned so much from shooting every day and it has pushed me to find beauty and interest in things I would never have considered before. Even with everything withered and faded, I am amazed at the beauty still on display in God's creation.
