Uprooted Magnolia

All Bundled Up

Posted in Photography, Winter by leahyetter on February 3, 2014

The wind finally died down and snow started to stick Thursday evening. When Patrick got home, we went out to feed the cows. They get so excited when they here the crumpling sound of the cake sack.

As you can probably tell, they NEVER miss a meal and Patrick just about got trampled by the excited girls.

Friday and Saturday mornings were overcast and snow squalls blew through several times a day giving us 3 or 4 inches on the ground. Days like these call for bundling up in my snowmobiling coveralls for a wander to the meadows to check on critters.

I got a wink and a smile from Gray. I can tell he’s having fun because he’s covered in mud. Pretty typical for this guy.

Crabby Alice debated on whether or not she wanted to come over and visit with me.

The Bay horse in the background is a bit bashful so he doesn’t get portraits very often. But I’ll get him one day.
Alice needs to wipe her nose. 😉

I love the pattern and chaos of the Cottonwood tree forest that surrounds us.

We celebrated Patrick’s birthday this weekend by chopping firewood, sitting by the river, and enjoying the quiet scenery of home. And of course I demanded a Birthday portrait of us. I used my new trigger remote with the camera on the tripod and my nifty fifty lens.
We have more snow ahead of us this week but the sun came out yesterday and today. Hello February!

    Good for you, on requesting a birthday portrait, and a great one at that.
    Yes, great Cottonwood puzzle.

      Thanks Gail! It’s so chilly that we almost got stuck in the lip to cheek kiss! 😉
      These majestic Cottonwoods are so awesome in every season, I just love them.

    I wasn’t even aware snowmobiling coveralls existed! I bet they have to be super duper warm with that extra wind. I love the cows getting so excited. I bet they are just too sweet. I love seeing your photos of life in Wyoming. I was born there but haven’t been back since I was 3 months old. Maybe someday.

    A really great set of winter images. Somehow doesn’t make me feel cold though 🙂
