On one of those nice sunny days a week or two ago, I went off on a photography expedition. Among other photos I've already shared I got these pictures of views around the valley - none of these are actually in the valley, but nearby. If you haven't noticed, I'm fascinated with the barns in our landscape here.
I like the compostion of this one, but I think I positioned the tree branches in just the wrong place.
The same tree and barns, a different angle.
Down one of my favourite rural roads.
A heavily cropped image, but I think it's very effective, capturing that isolated tree in the field.
A very different image, an apple orchard in winter. I enhanced this to bring out those shadows.
And yes, we still have lots of snow around here, though this snowbank has subsided by 3 or 4 feet now. Today for the first it was actually warm, not just a hint of warmth, but warm, above freezing and melting. I've been walking on ice but by today much of the road I walk is bare (covered with sand from the winter). I actually walked the dog with a light jacket and no gloves! Spring is here - at least the occasional early apring day!
