Healing Begins

The day dawned bright and sunny. With superhuman effort I pulled myself from off the bed consumed with pain so deep there was no end. Surrounded by so much death over and over again, does something to the one left behind who loves those who die. Yet, the day called me, persisting I grab my … Continue reading Healing Begins

Winter Wonderland

Two days ago Winter Wonderland put on quite a show before my bedazzled eyes as I wandered in sugar spun delight. No matter where my eyes turned, I saw divine royalty that stopped my breath. I wandered hither and thither within these Courts of Love, flowing with love emanating from every branch, every precious molecule … Continue reading Winter Wonderland

Walk-About

Having not been out with my cameras for far too long(!), I ran a marathon one morning in order to make time for myself. My goal was to go to a park I love with the sole intention of creating a Walk-About Prayer. The purpose of my prayer was to help addd to the disarming … Continue reading Walk-About

YOW, Surprise!

Oh. My. God. PAIN! Fire in my forearm ignited as I rapidly stepped back, dropping what I had been holding. I couldn’t believe what just happened for it had never before. And here I just got through saving a life when another of its kind stung me. Last Friday a yellowjacket …. think huge black … Continue reading YOW, Surprise!

Serendipity

While eating dinner last evening, my eyes repeatedly gazed at a particular sight I saw out my window and I thought, “I wonder if I could capture what I am seeing with my camera.” I looked and wondered all the time as I ate. When finished with dinner, I went to get my long lens … Continue reading Serendipity

My 2 Gifts +

Stepping off trail, I carefully walked as quietly as I could towards what I call the swampy pond. Approaching the edge of the pond I chose a tree to half hide behind so I could scan the entire pond. I was looking for a specific breed of ducks, based on a very strong feeing I … Continue reading My 2 Gifts +

Icy Dicey

Dusting my macro lens off, metaphorically speaking that is, I went outside to see what I possibly could find as treasure. Our bushes out front caught my eye so I drew in closer to them. Sure enough, I began to see the possibilities of what I could create. Looking at and studying the terrain, therein … Continue reading Icy Dicey

Snow Fun

Okie-Dokie. Who would have thought that in WNY in the month of January there would barely be any snow? I’ve been living in this area for more then 60 years, and I’m witnessing the unthinkable. So now I have to hunt for snow? A photographer friend told me that south of where we live, there … Continue reading Snow Fun

Love Affair

Today’s tale involves my love affair with a horse. Yes, a horse. Our neighbors went on vacation and asked me to take care of their horse while they were away. Prior to this, I had been going over to the barn and pasture every day with apples and carrots, showing this horse how much she … Continue reading Love Affair

YES!

Zippity-do-da! Snow! Perhaps just a little, but this was my chance to at least attempt to bring some snowscapes to you. But where to go, I asked? Hmmmm ….. I thought some and then I knew. It was cold the day I went out with my cameras. Very. So with care I dressed ensuring I … Continue reading YES!

Gotcha!

I normally do not show three pictures of the same bird, but there are always exceptions especially when it comes to a bird I’ve been trying to capture for years. A gorgeous male Pileated Woodpecker was spotted almost immediately when I entered the park. Could it really be this easy when I’ve been “hunting” for … Continue reading Gotcha!
