Snowy Forest

I love walking through a forest with freshly fallen snow. The snow absorbs the sound making it so quiet and peaceful.

This was taken near Wiarton Ontario with my Samsung Galaxy s7. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.


Curious Cabin in the Woods

My wife and I were driving down a gravel country road enjoying the scenery when out of the corner of my eye I caught sight of something very curious. It looked like a cabin but it had this exaggerated roof line and these funny bubble windows.

I quickly stopped and backed up to get a better look. Sure enough my eyes had not deceived me. I had to take a picture of this. I spent a few minutes shooting from different angles. This seemed to work best. In post processing I added a few textures and different treatments to add to the uniqueness of this curious little cabin in the woods.

The boot sold his soul for the bottle and this is where they ended up.

Although this looks like a late fall shot it was actually taken Dec. 28th. This time last year we had quite a bit more snow! It won’t be long before this is snow covered and when it is I will try to get back and take another shot.

I was out this morning taking pictures in the dull grey foggy weather. Why? I took a challenge from Shannon at SeeingSpots Photography http://seeingspotsphoto.wordpress.com/ to get out and take a winter, cold and snowy picture and submit it to be posted in a gallery of photos on her web site. Today was the deadline so out I went. It was great to get out since it has been a while since my last outing.

This is one of the shots I took today but not the one I submitted. I will link to it once Shannon has the gallery posted. Even though it was a pretty dull day – with a little creative additions I’m pleased with how it turned out.

New Life

A sure sign of spring, the daffodils are in bloom. Here they are one of the first indications of new life bursting forth from the forest floor covered with decaying autumn leaves.
