More Frozen Moments

I’ve always enjoyed taking photographs. But the freedom afforded me by my digital Canon PowerShot S2 IS, brings me great joy. I love being able to snap away, trying different angles and settings. The Wednesday into Thursday storm this past week provided me with ample opportunities to play - and play I did!

A lilac twig, encased in ice, topped with a snow toque. I like the bokeh effect.


This is the field I wrote about in my poem “Two Days In August”.


Trees against trees, playing with light, foreground and background.

will the lilac bloom come spring do you think?

Hi Lee,

You photographs resonate and bring me joy. I've mentioned before that, at times, I miss the Northeast of my upbringing. especially this time of the year (I don't know why).

Additionally, I believe it's less about the camera and more about the eye of the photographer.

Peace,

Hi Morgan -
Yes absolutely. While the severity of the last ice storm was very unusual, this sort of ice/sleet/snow combo is pretty common. As long as the twigs or branches aren't broken, all will be well.

Hi George -
Thank you so much for your generous words!
I know you've been having your fair share of snow in New Mexico, but I'm happy to share a little of our northeastern winters with you.

Hi B2B -
The Canon PowerShot S2 IS, (which we bought at the end of 2005) is not a wildly deluxe, all the bells, whistles and lenses kind of camera. But I love it and have yet to begin to tap all of it's potential.

Yes, the word verification is occasionally startling and often amusing!
