Year of Photos: Week 8

 We have vines that grow up the side of our deck. I'm excited to see what they look like in summertime glory.
A striking silhouette.
 The last of my valentine flowers.
 Early morning frost turns ordinary surfaces into a work of art.
It rained then snowed overnight. Everything outside was covered in crusty, icy snow. The texture was amazing. The driving conditions? Not so much.

 The sunsets are becoming later in the day. It's a blessing to come home from work and still have a little light left in the day.
This was a fun photo. I've been wanting to try my hand at a nighttime shot using a slow shudder speed and tripod. After a day of fresh snow, the night sky here in Boomtown was as bright as the snow-covered ground. I set the tripod up on the deck, pushed the button and waited, waited, and waited some more until the shutter finally closed for each shot. What do you know, the photos turned out. I'll have to try more of this!

    1. Thanks! It'll be fun to continue experimenting with it!

  2. Sometime take the tripod and put YOURSELF in the front of the camera. :) Miss you. Love your daily shots!

    1. Hmm, nothing like a self portrait to make me feel nervous! But thanks for suggesting it--I haven't played with the timer yet much and probably should! Ha.
