Hello, my friends!
I have one last wintery post for you before spring arrives. We got a whole ten inches of snow this morning and I wanted to share its beauty with you all! I had lots of fun walking around taking pictures of anything that caught my eye, taking a visit to the creek, and more.
Read on to enjoy plenty of cozy winter photos!
My snow boots weren’t high enough, so I kept getting snow which wasn’t the most comfortable, but I survived, haha.
This specific angle of our cheery dogwood tree is always one of my favorites spot to shoot. There’s something about the minimalist view that I like.
Same with this tree! We have so many pine trees on our land that it’s easy to get pretty pictures of them.
Isn’t this photo hilarious and slightly creepy? This is Chewy, our dog, in a nutshell. She can’t seem to get over the fact that she’s not a rabbit or another wild animal, so whenever we’re outside, she’s with us running through the creek or snow, jumping over fallen trees, and just generally being crazy. Click here to see this post that have some less creepy and cuter pictures of Chewy!
I love this picture, mostly because of the bokeh. I like photos that have the tree as the subject, but I also feel like it can be too plain. What do you think?
Swings are so much fun to photograph; they’re also one of my favorite things to use, too. 😄 This specific swing isn’t the most photogenic but once I edited it, it turned out to be pretty!
This is what we call our wood stack fortress, haha. We’re not going to run out anytime soon, especially since there are two stacks of trees that are cut and the wood is waiting to be split.
I always love the texture of wood stacks for some reason – they’re fun to use for backdrops in photoshoots, too!
This is actually the one colored photo in this post, I think. I chose a cozier and more aesthetic editing style than when I usually use a lighter and airy filter. Something about the green moss against the white snow made the picture pop!
Now, come down with me to the creek for a short walk! I’ve been enjoying taking lots of walks down here since it’s running again and it’s not all ice.
This picture is actually from a few days ago, but I decided to stick it in here because it sort of belonged with the other creek pictures. Anyway, I love it! It took some high shutter speed and quite a few failures, but it was worth it. I love water drops, don’t you?
While I was down in the creek, Dad came home from plowing and as he was plowing our driveway, his truck got stuck. o.O It became unstuck pretty quickly, but before it did, I got a few pictures. I feel like this should hold some dramatic meaning behind it, but it doesn’t. 😛
I love the contrast of the colors between the snow and the creek. I also like the way I edited this picture!
Reflections in the water are one of my favorite things. I love the blue tint to this photo, and the rocks you can see beneath the water.
Let’s switch subjects to icicles! This is one of my favorite photos. Something about the minimalism and the icicles against the clear sky is beautiful.
I don’t love this picture as much as I like the one above, but it’s still nice; icicles are always so cool and delicate.
One last picture before I close this post! This one was so long so I climbed up on the deck and knocked it off. I also love the bokeh in the background!
now, it’s your turn!
I hope you enjoyed reading this post and seeing all the photos, as much as I enjoyed taking them.
Also a quick note! I’m going to be updating the site for the next few weeks because there are some design and technical changes that I don’t love. So if things look a bit wacky, please bare with me; I’ll get it all sorted out soon!
Snow or beaches? What’s your favorite photo from this post? Do you like icicles and creeks?
Thank you for reading, my dear friends, and have a beautiful day!
