January Thaw

I was in a dismal state this morning. I hadn’t taken my camera out for so long. When I stepped outside with my dogs I felt the unseasonable mild temperature of a January thaw. The thought of mild weather for the next few days didn’t really cheer me up, as February is just around the corner. Then I thought of my camera safely tucked away in my study. I retrieved my little friend and immediately felt the anticipation as I went out the back door.

I walked to my special clearing surrounded by pine trees and lifted my face to the sun streaming through the boughs. I brought my camera eye level and clicked away. There is nothing like holding a camera and the sound of the shutter release button to bring me back to a happy place. I didn’t care if the photos weren’t stellar, it’s all about the creative process that makes me feel whole.

Everyone – have a great week!

Little bits of green moss among brown patches and melting snow.

Looking close, I saw drops of water on the ends of the pine needles.

Caught the sun coming through the wood pile, even caught a prism.

Interesting finds uncovered with the melting snow.

I let the sun beams warm my soul.
