Winter Color

On nice days, one of my favorite things to do is go out side and find things to take photos of. I love the color of the sky, winter plants, berries and birds in this area. These were taken last week on one of my walks. Some of these are better if you click on them, and they should open in their own window.

One of my favorite birds- Bufflehead ducks. They are beautiful and can dive underwater for the longest time!

A plant that grows near water. These grow in sloughs in Saskatchewan where I grew up and my grandma always kept some in a huge urn. They were in the corner of her dining room and I am pretty sure they are still there today.

The Buffleheads. Notice the flat neck and head shape.

Rose hips. Cattails.

I don't know why, but I like this one. Something about the far away focus. It's almost like a bugs view.

Rose hips. Snowberry.


  1. What a view! You take some great pictures - keep up the good work!!

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog! I really enjoyed your winter photos!

  3. Oh golly....sound festive?
    Anyway I love some of theses shots and would love to paint them! Can I steal them from you?
    Oooo, would you want royalties? We can work something out:)

  4. Love those pics! a.sister

  5. Anna- You can paint any of my photos that you wish! It would be an honor. :) I don't need royalties!

    (Hmmm...or maybe I do.... I always wanted one of your paintings on my walls.....we could do a trade! You can steal all the photos you want from my site and eventually maybe paint ME a piece of art! ) ;)

  6. Happy blogging birthday! Or is that just when you started recording when people visited your site? 12-13-06?

  7. Sarah- It is only when I started counting guests. It wasn't much later after I started the blog though! I think it would be interesting to go and see what I posted last year at this time.... I'm off to do so! Thanks for pointing that out!

  8. I just went and read my "welcome" post, and it was written on the 11th of December 2006. Just a couple of days earlier.

  9. Oooo that sounds good to me, i will paint whatever you want in trade for the use of your photography, I love this idea, we both win!


Your comments make my day, thank you!
