Winter is Here

Michigan’s weather temperatures are slowly decreasing.  Winter is here. Most people should understand the colder weather is a normal part of living in Michigan in December. I personally do not mind the colder weather. But the high winds make going outside difficult. Feeding the little Sparrows and other winter birds is a cold process. However, if I do not feed them daily, the birds sit on my porch. So every time, I walk by my sliding glass window, I see them peering in at me. Yes, I am convinced this is a guilt trip tactic.

Tonight, you can tell snow is on the way. There’s a heaviness in the air. According to the weatherman, the next couple of days should only bring about three inches of snow. So, if you are out and about in Mid-Michigan, drive safely.

Until next time…peace

7 Days Black and White Challenge: Day 1

Right now on social media, the 7 days black and white challenge is extremely popular. I finally decided to participate.  So this is the first photo from last night. I am not a big still life photography person. I would rather be outdoors. But once in a while, a creative mood hits me to try something different.

Challenge: 7 Days, 7 Black & White Photos, No humans, No explanations

Day 1

Stolen Moments

I admit, watching the sunrise never gets old for me. In fact, there are some mornings that just take my breath away. I guess, the beauty of nature will never cease to amaze me. The stolen moments before a hectic day leave me with a sense of peace.

I particularly loved this sunrise. The thick heavy fog seemed to lower as the sun began to peek over the Michigan landscape. At every stage of the sunrise, the natural world began to wake. Chirping birds sang, insects buzzed, turkeys strolled across the field, and the deer slowly pranced by me, a perfect start to the day.

Until next time…peace
