Snow day

winter Hydrenga 2 cp eml
It’s a very nice day to stay home, stay inside, lounge, drink coffee and make plans with my wife for the year. After a solid morning of much coffee and good talks I’m thinking cabin fever is highly overrated! I guess I only thought staying in a cozy cabin in Alaska for the winter would be fun. There is not enough coffee for that!

With camera and tripod in hand I decide an outdoor jaunt would be fun. I didn’t get very far as snowflakes blurred the lens but you decide if endeavouring is worth the effort. Sometimes we get something other than what we sought.

I had hoped to capture the snow flakes and it was a learning curve for me even in a heavy snowfall.

Sumac and Spruce contrast. Snow accents the various tree shapes.

Our Driveway is there somewhere beyond the bush. The mailman said he couldn’t deliver a package today. I say what? the drive is only half a mile long.

Birch limbs hang low, I suspect the deer will nip these off. Snow changes many things, even our perspective

Playing with the light meter, getting new perspectives through the viewfinder. Very heavy snow

A little lighter and happier snow picture of the shed. I’m happier now. What a large difference is made with a small change in perspective.

Now I notice the railing and blurry wood pile and it’s snowing!

I’m quite sure we should have more snow days. I know my perspective needs to tweaked more often than I would admit. It’s a good day. I needed this snow day.

May your crooked paths be made straight. May we gain an eagles view as we reset. May we have more snow days!

Even eagles need a snow day. Not snowing so much now.

I shouldn’t minimize the talking, much coffee, making a couple of life direction decisions  and reflecting on the past few years gone by. Our strength lies in our relationships with each other and in our walk with God. Our lens on life gets a cleaning on days like this.

What if we could see through the lens of life through others view finders? Friends, spouse or even Gods?  Our Life: same subject but different perspectives, and yes, in life it gets cold, blows, snows and rains on all of us. Here’s to more snow days!

  1. Thanks Ron, Photography is like playing guitar. Any one can learn 3 chords in a day and haphazardly strum away on most songs in one key. It’s the easiest instrument to learn and the hardest to get really good at (to get past the strumming stage…most don’t)…Anyway I still strumming on the camera but once in awhile can place a few harmonics into the picture.
