The Beauty of Snow

Winter is fast approaching and so are the snow storms! Not many things are better than taking a walk through the woods after a freshly fallen snow with my camera...

I like to walk softly and listen to the sound of the snow crunching under my boots while looking out for pretty scenes that I think would make a nice photo. I liked the depth of the snow resting on the fine pine needles in the photo above.

"Snow Love" is what we'll call the picture above. There's a heart shaped snow clump resting at the end of the snow covered branch. I couldn't resist taking this photo!
"Snow In Love" 9x12 Fine Art Print on Etsy
Click here to buy it from my shop!

The wonder and beauty in nature never ceases to amaze me! Just look at all of the tiny little flakes that make this stuff up - and think about how much it takes to move it all with the shovel!

Snow, snow, snow... oh I can't wait for the snow :)

The Colours of the Butterfly

Take a stroll through Mother Nature's garden and be inspired by the amazing colours of the iridescent butterfly...

Enjoy the beauty that comes to visit, in all its myriad shapes, colours and patterns.
And although each one dances and sings to its own silent song, just like us, each has its own unique beauty.
Yellows, blues, oranges, browns, black - can you be anything but in awe of Mother Nature?
Oh, the wonder of how these beauties go about their business; how they float so graciously on the air.
And flutter so delicately to decorate the landscape with all their magical colours...
