On Sunday morning, the trees looked like this:
We had had freezing rain the day before, and the angle of the sun was lighting up the thousands of tiny frozen drops. I hadn’t even noticed at first, having had my coffee and done some marking for school. Then, when I was doing dishes, I looked out the window and it was simply magical. I immediately dried my hands and grabbed my camera.
The trees were glistening in the light, but the first few shots I made didn’t truly capture how gorgeous they were. After a few sharply focused shots, I decided to try something a little different.
These photos better captured the feeling of the moment. It was truly magical.
When the months get colder and the snow has covered summer’s garden, I shop for inspiration.
Inexpensive supermarket flowers make for many photos. I could not stop taking pictures of this pretty bouquet that I picked up the other day.
They didn’t look like much, stuck in a vase. Some of the petals were curled and withered from the plastic wrap, and a few leaves torn. They weren’t perfect, but when I rearranged them in the bright afternoon sunlight, they made for some beautiful compositions.
Here are a few of my favourites:
These are all available in my Etsy shop as digital dowloads:
