Falling in the Snow

With all of this warm weather we’ve been having, the snow has been rather soft.

And so, while walking through my backyard looking around for photo possibilities, I fell right through it. Incredibly, I managed to fall without dropping my camera in the snow.

As I was getting up, I looked down and noticed these little frozen bubbles by my feet.

I crouched low and managed a few shots before the dogs tore through them and sent them flying.

When Winter Rains

Freezing rain is the last thing I want to see in the winter.

I dread the roads, fear the driveway, and curse the icy layer on the car.

But I can’t help myself: It is pretty. So I brave the backyard and head out with my camera. The world is layered in glass.

Treacherous, yet stunningly beautiful.
