awesome morning

I took this picture while waiting for the kids to get on the bus. The cloud was so beautiful for about 8:00 am. Just an awesome display of the Creators hand.

winter tree

I took a picture with my camera of the trees trying out various formats. I came up with this sepia tinted picture. It does resemble the old time pictures.

lol beauty and the beast.

I never know which picture will show up first. I took a picture of a beautiful cloud formation during the summer. I know it is still winter, but it has been so cold. I am waiting for some warmer weather. The dog is my daughter Jamie's. She may look cute but she is such a nut. When Jamie was in school, I would wake her up in the morning. That dog would lunge at me to attack an as soon as Jamie was gone she would jump into my bed and snuggle next to me. She is terrified of thunderstorms, but if the door is left open she will run away during one, instead of hiding which is her normal attitude during a storm. Go figure. Beauty is the cloud, guess who the beast is.

Snow and the Queen

Just a couple pictures I took of the recent snow and of course the Queen of the house.

Bosham - a great place to be an artist

This is the most wonderful place for painting, drawing and just chilling, it is a tidal estuary called Bosham, its not far from home for me and during the summer months we go there for the day, its quite often the case that over the last year I have been left to draw or paint on my own while my husband and sone both go off walking. I don't mind, gives me a few minutes of peace, and now that I am getting more confident I will start producing some nice paintings, well I hope so.

early morning winter scapes

I commented on one of my autumn post about the landscape changing to the dull landscapes of winter. Little did I know that on my camera was a little setting that changed these early morning pictures to a colorful palette of morning. It seems it pays to read the book that comes with the camera. The settings I found switching from video to picture mode totally by accident. Would you believe the night scene setting took such lovely colored pictures. I never had much luck capturing the image I wanted using the ISO settings. Ah go figure. Lesson for the New Year.... go read the instruction manual.
