The snow has blown away but I’d like to share one more fragile flake from yesterday. These quick snows make me slow down and step out to appreciate these sweet gifts of nature.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend friends!


Chasing the Perfect Snowflake

It’s been a busy week around here but we got a lovely little snow yesterday and last night. I was able to take a quick wander across the wintery meadow this morning to find the perfect snowflake. This one fit the bill. So precious. So fragile.

The air was heavy with fog but the ground and fence posts sparkled yesterday morning.

Old man winter is taking his sweet time to exit. But these frosty, glittery mornings do make me cheerful.

More practice with freelensing

We still have snow on the ground because it’s been so COLD! Usually it melts or blows away to get ready for the next storm. It’s been like this since Christmas. I look out the window and it’s all a’glitter. I’m looking forward to finally getting out and celebrating with friends tonight to ring in the new year.

Thank you all so much for another great year here at Uprooted Magnolia. My 2012 year in blogging review reports that this year, the most popular images were from Peekaboo Fawn. Maybe this sweet creature will be entered into a contest or two.  I’ll keep you posted.

Wishing you safe and happy New Years Eve celebrations tonight and I look forward to another great year with y’all.

Cheers!
Leah

Freelensing: a Snowflake

A friend and mentor of mine suggested I try the freelensing technique with my nifty 50mm to get macro results. I love that snowflakes really do look like storybook snowflakes. I froze my fanny while working on this and I finally got one that I believe is worthy for your eyes. What do you think? Please keep in mind I am still trying to perfect this so don’t be too harsh.


Snowflakes on the River Ice

It snowed yesterday morning, noon, and night and while Patrick checked on the cows across the river, I checked on the horses and heifers close to home. After making my rounds for the third time, I took a break by the Laramie River and captured snowflakes atop the ice. Today we have a beautiful blanket of snow as far as the eyes can see. It’s a gorgeous yet chilly Saturday morning at the homestead.
Have a great day my friends and stay warm!
