Winter As I See It

As much as I would like to think that we are done with the coldest part of winter,I am also realistic, knowing that we can still get more cold and lots more snow.
Since we are still in the winter season,I will share some more of my recent winter photos.
I hope you find one or two that you like and I trust that the quotes I share will speak to you as well.

Learn to appreciate what you have, before time make you appreciate what you had.

Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back,it simply means that you are two steps ahead of them.

Just remember, even your worst days only have twenty-four hours.

Some of you will recognize this place.This is at Lake Minniwasta,near Morden.I have taken photos here in many different seasons and weather.

Just remember that, in prayer,God hears more than your words— He listens to your heart.

Thanks for sharing a few minutes of your time with me, here on this page.
Let's meet here again, real soon.

Some of My first Pictures

Join me as I take a look back into the archives.
I recently organized all my pictures, and in doing so,I got brief looks at all of them.
I was actually quite surprised at how good some of my first shots looked, so I will be sharing some of them. I may have posted some of these before, but hope you enjoy them the second time as well.

These pictures were taken during the summer of 2005.I had just got a camera a simple point and shoot.I think it was an Olympus.It had some zoom on it, but no telephoto lens.
This is the first ever Bald Eagle I was able to photograph.I was thrilled as could be to get this shot.

I should mention that all of the pictures in today's post were taken in the Whiteshell area of eastern Manitoba.
I've always enjoyed this shot.A small body of water beside the road was all it took for some fantastic reflections.

Jake and I had gone to the Whiteshell for a weekend.The place we stayed was across the road from this beautiful lake.The setting sun made for a lovely picture, in my opinion.

Of course, even back then, in my early photography days,I couldn't just take one picture of a sunset.

The next morning we were treated to mist over the water. This had a more subtle look but was still very pretty.

I will be showing more winter/snow scenes, but I will also keep on sharing some of my earlier pictures and some never before shared shots

Closing thought:
The following seems very appropriate:
God creates the beauty,
my camera and I are witnesses.
