Rose Hips & Winter

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Rose Hips & Winter 120120a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

I awoke to a new world today. The first day of December arrived on time and covered my mountain with a blanket of fresh snow. “You need to get out with your camera.” My wife said gently as she began to give our dog his morning belly rub. Soon afterwards I found myself going up the mountain in my big blue truck. The fresh aroma of coffee wafting up from my thermos is all the more satisfying when the snow is blowing. I stopped by several different places to take pictures and eventually made my way to Muddlety Creek to visit the marsh. The songbirds were huddled in the thickets well protected from the icy dagger like wind sweeping across the open wetlands. The marsh is thick with the swamp rose which seems to not suffer from issues that domestic roses need constant defending from. The bright red hips are the perfect accent amid the tan snow covered reeds. I set the breaks on the big blue truck and roll the window down. The silence of the marsh brings an otherworldly feel to the scene as I snap the shutter. This day will become a snow globe in my lens and all that exists is the berries and myself.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

  1. Such a pretty picture! The feeling I got from it was perfect stillness within chaos. I love that your wife encourages you to go take pictures ❤

    1. Thank you Frances ♥️. Yes Angie is awesome that way. And I’m encouraging her with her books and art. We’ve never been able to wait until Christmas day to exchange gifts. Today she got some canvas and paints so hopefully she’ll be producing another book soon.
