Seeing the Light

in late afternoon as sunlight glows through neighborhood trees.

Now that the days (finally) are much warmer and longer, we've resumed our local walks. We don't go walking every day, but try to get out a couple of afternoons a week, in addition to regular morning "Y" visits. Yard work also gets us outdoors more now.

This tangled maze of branches was not budding a couple of weeks ago.


Afternoon light creates unique patterns especially when coupled with special effects. These shots were done "straight out of the camera" (SOOC) using varied camera settings.

A fish-eye setting with an added "zoom" effect can make the world seem to go "faster."
ENJOY your weekend — hope that your weather is better now too.

Glad you're having photographic fun. Our snow is almost gone except where piled. Expecting more on Tuesday, but it won't last. Yesterday was quite beautiful -- went all the way up to 54°F.

Buds coming out on the redbud. Got the onions in the ground yesterday. Spring must be here!

That tangled web of branches reminds me of a shot I still have in waiting from the winter of a marshland. Excellent shots!

What fun pics! Yes, the weather is gorgeous here today. We spent much of the day sitting on the patio watching the birds. My Honey photographed them while I watched and knitted to fill an order. It's fun to have a portable job. ;)

More lovely photos. Yes we had warmth too, but snow dusted us yet again overnight, I posted to my Facebook...at the Y today we were saying we no longer appreciate it's prettiness. It's almost all melted now but it's not the first time we have encoutnered snow dust in April...this year the winter has been too long so we say ENOUGH
