Saturday: Flash Forward

Lilly of the Valley en route

ahhhhhhhh  – it’s March 5th.  We have more snow on the ground today than we have all winter.  But, all is good. In just a few short weeks, spring will start to do its thing.  As illustrated in my Simple, Single photo for today:

It’s coming.  It will.  Green is just around the corner….

Warm wishes – hope you are having an enjoyable Saturday.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

Day 32 of 365:

First day of a new month, first day of a new week – my energy level and optimism are bright and shiny.

Speaking of such things, here is my take on “Vibrant”….


Back story here:

I initially thought this week’s challenge theme was going to be really tough to pull off.   You have to understand: it’s winter.  I live in Canada.  Nothing around me is vibrant at the moment.

However, luck was on my side when I had an unexpected opportunity to capture this shot yesterday afternoon.  The temperature outside had climbed all the way up the thermometer to an unseasonably warm 10 degrees (Celsius).  The sun came out and generously melted the snow in my yard just enough to reveal the green leaves of one of my lavender plants in the garden.

So there it was, waving to me, my vibrant subject,  jumping out at me from a sea of white and grey.  I grabbed my camera and pounced.

This may not be the most stunning example of “Vibrant” that will be posted in response to this week’s photo challenge….but it sure caught my eye!

Sunday: Tone

Day 17 of 365:

{Simple, Single Image On Sunday}

Hoar Frost, Black and White

Yes, still tinkering with tone on tone.  Yesterday, I used a white subject against a white background.  Today, my subject is still blending into its surroundings, but in black and white instead of colour.

I think I like this one better…but it still needs work.


Happy Sunday!
