Photo Challenge: Snow



I took entirely too many photos this week, but decided to keep most of them for more winter posts. You know, those days when there are no pretty pictures available.




Those trees were breathtaking, and could be in a painting or storybook. And sadly, they don't belong to me.





I certainly won't be getting scurvy this winter... I just can't get enough oranges!



Speaking of oranges, aren't the beaks and feet of these ducks striking? This group seemed to be having a conversation with one another, and they look pretty happy.


Too bad this wasn't the week for motion!

Join us at Rebecca's house for more Foto Friday.

Wonderful photos! You have lots of snow! We don't really have any here now though it has been colllddd.

I love the basketball, the duck, the motion, the oranges!

Those trees are breathtaking, and I love the contrast of the oranges in the snow!

I too just love the trees! Now if there was only a snow covered castle in the picture :)

Rebecca said...

Looks like your basketball is getting as much use as our truck!

LOVED the trees (they ARE right out of a painting!) AND the ducks! I think ducks are beautiful.

You really captured the contrast of snow and color well with the duck picture. I also loved your view of them flying. My husband has been hunting ducks and goose this winter so it was a pleasure to see some action shots of them ! :)

I like your photos. I stopped by to visit after reading about your photos on Mrs. Rabe's blog "Creekside Cottage".

I am a photographer myself, and the orange of the duck bills and feet is striking.
