Lensbaby Winter Scenes

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ~Edith Sitwell~

Macro Ice on Trees

I think we have had enough of old man winter and even though we are all over it and longing for Spring, you can't help but succumb to it's beauty! Stuck at home for a few days in a row, I decided to wander around our yard and see what I could find to inspire me. A few trees glistening with ice and the beautiful old farm house amongst the trees that we can see from our back deck.

I have been participating in the Click it Up a Notch, 28 day challenge for the month of February to find beauty in something each day. Whether it is with my iPhone or dslr, it is forcing me to pick up a camera and document something each day. I don't think I could ever do a 365 challenge, but I think I can hang in there for 28 days!

~Wishing you all a warm and wonderful weekend~

I lived in Northern Japan for 6 years-so I know winter. I wish I was a photographer back then. And even though I've been loving everyone's winter scenes, It does get old after awhile. Good luck on your 28. It is good for the soul to realize that there is real beauty in simple and ordinary.

what a great idea - it has been too cold to wander too far around here though. (I don't like cold!)
