I don’t have quite the same photo opportunities now that I live in the town rather than on a farm – no fields surrounding my house or woods and creeks to explore nearby. But if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m a firm believer that you can find beauty anywhere. So the other day I decided to take some pictures in my little yard after a rain shower to see if I could capture some pretty nature in our corner of the neighborhood.
Enjoy these peaceful pictures!
Hello, my friends!
I’m writing my post in a motorhome today because we’re on vacation at the moment! I thought maybe I’d have time to sort through my trip pictures so far and post some, but nope, sadly I didn’t. Stay tuned for a travel journal post next week. Meanwhile, here’s a winter playlist for you guys! I know winter can be a rather sad or depressing season for a lot of people, so today I picked out a few encouraging songs I’ve been enjoying recently to share with you guys. I hope this music brightens your day, whether it’s icy or sunny outside where you live. 🙂 Get some earbuds or a speaker and here we go!
Hello, my friends!
I’ve been saving this dewdrop photoshoot for several months, as you will see from the green-ness and flowers in this post. Since, of course, I’ve posted countless similar photoshoots (but I can’t help it!), I decided to edit these pictures a little differently. Although I took them all at the same time, I had fun editing some to look like they were taken at golden hour or even at night. You know me and my photo editing experiments, right? 😛
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this small dose of sunshine and growing things for a winter day!
Remember the post from last year about swimming in our duckweed-covered pond? Well, it’s swimming season again and “our pool is open!” XD It’s a rather greenish pool, but hey, it’s water, right?
One Sunday evening a couple of weeks ago, we all went down to the dock and my siblings went swimming and canoeing. Sort of. I stayed on dry land and took photos instead, heh heh. I managed to capture quite a lot of amusing action shots and funny expressions, which I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
Ready? Set? Go!
Before I start this post, I just wanted to say thank you all SO much for your lovely birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day filled with love from friends and family, fun gifts, delicious food, a lovely walk in the woods, and a movie night. 🙂 I can’t believe I’m 19. O.o And yes, I will hopefully post about my birthday gifts next, because I know you guys enjoy those posts (as do I). 😉 So stay tuned!
But for now, I am SO excited to show you guys this photoshoot! I looked out the window one morning and saw that the wheatfield across the lane looked silver. It had just rained and the sun caught the bedewed wheat in a breathtaking way. I dropped everything and took heaps of pictures of all the little wonders I found at the edge of the field -including a large amount of ladybugs and water drops, which made for some amazing photos!
Have fun browsing through these minty-hued pictures!
