Red Barn

I took this photo on a drive we took last weekend. It was nice to get out of the with no particular place to go.

Snowy Eau Claire River

I took these shots a couple weeks back, when the weather was teasing us with some 30 degree temps only to send more frigid temperatures not long after. It is a part of the Eau Claire River in downtown Eau Claire.

Pink Blossoms

I don't know about you but I could use some Spring! I was looking at pictures with my Son this morning on the computer and I came across some pretty pink blossoms that I am sure I've never posted so I thought I'd post them now. They were taken with my point and shoot camera when we still lived in Maryland, in the Spring of 2012 I believe.
Too bad there is STILL how many weeks till we see signs of Spring here?  At least you can pretend with these pictures.

Blue Winter

That title could have more than one meaning, anyone that lives in an area where the Winter has been stupidly long and cold knows what I am talking about. Seems like Spring will never get here.
Here's a shot of the road during the storm last week. My husband came home saying it looked pretty cool up the road with the snow on the trees and the snow falling. It was a tad too late to get a great shot but I thought this one was pretty cool.  I haven't tried "night" photography yet, maybe someday soon.

Factory in Winter

For whatever reason I find the smoke coming out of the smokestacks in the winter here pretty.  Yes, they're polluting the air, but at least I can find some beauty in them, right???

Snowy Trees in February

Sigh... we had yet another snow-storm yesterday. Really, this area of Wisconsin is not supposed to get so much, but the last 2 years it has got more than average. Figures! I wish I could say this is the last snow storm or last glimpse of Winter but I can't. More below zero temps are also on the way. Is it Spring yet???
Although I HATE Winter I thought the snow piling up on the trees was pretty so I went out and took some quick shots.

Dried flower in the snow

I thought these looked pretty on a winter walk I took a few weeks back. I find it interesting that after all the snow and wind we get around here that these dried flowers stay in tact!
