I was sitting in Adelle’s Coffeehouse in downtown Dover, NH, watching this man with his cup of hot chocolate. The hot chocolate at Adelle’s is truly a work of art, especially with their signature homemade whipped cream. As he drank his hot chocolate, he seemed so content and deeply lost in thought.
Snow was falling one morning while I was sitting at my computer. I happened to glance out the window and saw this little bird just sitting on the branch of a very large weeping willow tree that resides in my backyard. The bird was just sitting there while large fluffy flakes of snow fell to the ground. I quickly grabbed my camera and ran outside. I got a few shots off before the bird flew away.
The snow continued to fall throughout the day, blanketing my little corner of New England. I sat warm and comfortable, writing in the backroom with my two dogs at my feet. I felt very thankful to be alive, safe and warm on this winter day. Everytime I look at this photograph I’m in awe of the beauty of nature and the gift of life.
This photograph was captured with a Nikon D300 and a 70-200mm Nikkor lens.
