I know that I’m late, but I hope everyone has been enjoying the new year? It hasn’t been much of a winter for those of us who actually appreciate a winter season, but it has been cold the last few days. When I woke up this morning I was finally greeted to a yard full of frost. This is a little more like it! Truth is, this just really makes me miss shooting in the snow even more…
The sun rising above my house bright and early this morning.
After dropping my kids off for school last week I noticed a thick layer of fog rapidly moving in. Since I always have my camera on me I decided to stop off at the park before heading home to see what I could capture. It was dark, gloomy, rainy and foggy but I loved it! I thought about how eerily moody the scenery was. Each area of the park resembled a dense, creepy forest, or maybe the set of an elaborate Hollywood movie. I ended up staying for almost 3 hours, not only shooting but enjoying the view. I couldn’t believe my luck because, I was up so early that I had the entire park all to myself! I will admit, the silence mixed with the weather created a very spooky atmosphere.
Eventually the rain came in and started pouring down so I thought, “maybe it’s time to go?” “maybe I should stay and take some cool rain shots?” The next thing I know I see 2 huge stray dogs roaming around and not looking very friendly so I knew at that point the decision had been made for me! Shoots over! I packed up my camera and carefully drove home. Below are a few of the resulting images.

This early morning skyline has two uniquely contrasting cloud formations creating an interesting pattern, and color palette. In the second photo, the clouds at the top of the frame resembles burning flames against the dense, pillowy texture of the clouds in the lower half of the frame. I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen this strange combination? Nevertheless, the sky seems to always provide us with a dramatic light and art show across the atmosphere at any given moment. All we have to do is look up and pay close attention.
I’d rather be back on the beach even on a stormy day like this than to be where I am now. Wishful thinking I guess?
Happy Sunday everyone! It’s Spring Fling time once again and it’s a beautiful day out. One thing I love about the fair is all the wonderful colors everywhere. I’m trying to capture as much of them as I possibly can! I hope to have a full post from this event up soon. Enjoy your day!
On my way to take my son to school and I’m greeted by these beauties! Have a great morning everyone!
