She’s a snow picture-taking fool!

I can't help it.  When we are snowed-in, I just have to get out the camera and phone and take pictures.  Yes, I'm betting that you're all getting tired of seeing pictures of my snowy backyard, but there's more snow today, and it's still snowing.  So, here are a bunch more pictures from this morning, …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #135: A glimpse into my (snowy) world!

Yippee!  Snow!!  Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have been hearing for a couple of weeks that snow was in the forecast.  They kept pushing the date back, however, which is pretty normal around here.  Last night, around midnight, it did start to snow, and we awoke this morning to see the white stuff falling …

Lens-Artists Challenge #105-Spring

Spring.  The first sign is the gradually, gradually, lengthening days.  Still awaking in the dark, but driving home from work in daylight.  Here in the Pacific Northwest, Spring is normally pretty rainy (yeah, the  cliche about April showers bringing May flowers that we all know and love).  But we actually love the rain here, because …
