More Snow??

Jack Frost paid us another visit! Snow was lightly dusted on the ground when we woke up this morning and it was raining and snowing off and on all day. Nothing quite as drastic as our last snow storm, but I’m hoping it won’t keep us from taking our little car around town HAHA! We really need to invest in a 4-wheel drive vehicle lol!¬†

This week I was able to start working again! It’s exciting, but also hard to get back into when you aren’t used to it. But, I’m enjoying the independence and the money will help us in a lot of ways ūüôā I’m hoping it won’t keep me from my photography, but so far it hasn’t been an issue.

William and I will be enjoying a nice little mini vacation next week, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to post again, but I hope it will be sometime this weekend ūüôā Have a good night everyone!

Twilight Wine Tasting

William and I have been to Sweet Cheeks Winery a few times (Sweet Cheeks¬†Winery¬†and¬†Not Another Wine¬†Post!), each time there are different ways of photographing it’s beauty. We traveled to the “Twilight Tastings” and because it’s winter the sun sets a lot sooner than last time we were there.¬†

These first two shots was the view before we arrived there and the rest is the outdoor area. Because it was cold and dark, no one ventured outdoors, so I was able to walk around and take pictures anywhere I wanted!

A Good Time For a Walk

I apologize for the delay in posts, it’s been another crazy week. It’s been more of an emotionally crazy week than anything else. My husband is going to Afghanistan for contract work again ūüė¶ I hate being away from him, but this opportunity is a great one and I’m excited for him in that way. With William leaving soon and me trying to find work and we haven’t had time to go take any pictures, but today was another typical day here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s been cloudy, than sunny, than cloudy and sunny again haha! So while the sun was out I ran outside with William and my brother Ryan and I took what pictures I could. You guys are probably completely sick of this covered bridge lol, but it’s just so pretty I couldn’t help but get a different look on it this time ūüôā I’m still sticking to my goal this year and trying to find different ways of seeing and capturing areas or objects. So far I was happy with what I was able to get today.

Revisiting the Winery Graveyard

Almost two year ago William and I ran into a graveyard while visiting a local winery.¬†The Unexpected¬†Graveyard¬†was one of those moments where I was so happy to have Frank (my Canon) with me. At that point, I was taking all of my pictures on the “Landscape” setting on my camera haha! I was so new I had no idea what all the buttons and dials meant. So going back to that location was really exciting, just to see if I’d be able to make them any better. I’m not sure if they are any better, but they are a lot spookier! We have been experiencing freezing fog here the last couple of days. I was hoping the fog would be there when we got there, but I was so incredibly cold I was afraid I was rushing the pictures along. I hope I got the images the way I wanted to, it was nice being able to see that location again.

Here’s a shot of the winery not far from us, this is how foggy it was! HAHA

This is the walking path to the little graveyard.

I was sad to see quite a few headstones broken and propped up against trees, who knows where they are really suppose to be.

Revisiting Moon Falls

My husband and I went to¬†Moon¬†Falls¬†this time last year, but at that time I didn’t have my wide angle lens! I was going to go back this last summer to capture it, but life got a little busy and I ended up forgetting about it. Yesterday I woke up and told William, “We need to go to Moon Falls, I’ve been putting it off for way too long!” HAHA! It was a cloudy day and by the time we left it had started raining, but the pictures turned out pretty anyways. Not as beautiful as the last time I was there, but still happy to see it through my wide angle lens ūüôā
