We finally received a dusting of snow Friday night. The kids (and teachers) were bummed that it was a Saturday morning, so no snow day. It wasn't enough to do anything with, but it was fun to walk through and get some pictures. I'm good with it and ready for spring!
It was beautiful.
Snowy wheat is very pretty.
Warm days gone by...although he plays in the cold. :)
She's worse than the kids!
It was gone in a few hours, so I was good with that!
Summer has flown by and the kids are out of school (again) all week for the local horse show, so I had to bribe him to cut his hair and take his picture. It was either that or he couldn't leave town. ;) But he agreed...imagine that?! I was itching to take some portraits...seems like forever...and it has been. And since they had just cut the hay field and rolled it, it was the perfect prop.
Honestly, find the right light and make those eyes pop! I did nothing here other than to sharpen. They are that amazing in the light!
A little different angle...still beautiful.
I love the height perspective in this picture. I may have to get one every year to show his growth!
It's been a long spring, that hasn't really been spring. We get a taste and then winter returns. It's been hot, cold, cool, warm and freezing...all in a span of weeks, sometimes days! Not to mention wet. I've never seen the ponds, rivers and lakes so high...not that I'm complaining about that, because last years drought was really bad, but geez, can we warm up and dry out for a bit? The flowers are just about done blooming and yet we are still getting down to freezing some nights. I guess Mother Nature is just testing us this year!
We usually take an after dinner drive down the back country roads. Tonight we went in search of the "right" yellow flowered landscape picture. I've got the picture in my head, now I've just got to find what I see in my head...before the yellow fields disappear! But tonight, we found something else. Peacocks! We heard them before we saw them.
They are really used by farmers as early warning signals!
We only saw 3, but it sounded like there were more.
I had not been down this road before, so I loved finding the old barns...although around here, there's an old barn on every country road!
