saturday morning

There was beautiful hoarfrost everywhere on saturday morning, so I went and took some photos. It was kinda cold, but so worth it! I'm pretty pleased with how some of them turned out. And yes, I live in the boonies (hence the barbed wire fences, and barren construction-in-progress landscape).

above photos were taken directly behind my backyard. It's a big huge dirtpile with grasses growing on top. It looked pretty wicked with all the hoarfrost.

these are just random tufts of weeds/grasses on the side of the road. I put the camera down at ground level (without looking thru viewfinder - didn't feel like lying in the snow) and took some shots. They kinda look like strange trees to me. I like how they turned out, anyway!

You were right. It was totally worth it. My favorites are the one with the rocks and the one with the tire. I don't know why but that tire... combined with the footprints seems like it's trying to tell a story.

hey stalker. (I'm only saying that cuz you're commenting as I'm posting new stuff - totally fine! just weird)

that's funny, I don't like the tire one so much. but thank you! I like the tufts of grass ones, and the close-up of the barbed wire. The rock (dirt pile) one is pretty cool.

Wow! these are fabulous! I love the rock one, and I also love the barbed wire ones. Amazing photos!

thanx ladybug! i'm thinking about getting some prints made, maybe on the canvas paper. i think they would look nice framed.

really lovely shots! We've had very little snow in DC this winter, so seeing these is a treat!
