Anyone that knows me (at all) knows that I despise winter … especially extreme cold temperatures (below 40 degrees) and any type of precipitation.  Most winters I essentially hibernate, withdrawing from all social life – even online.  I am striving to change that, though. Photography is motivating me to live, even during the dismal winter months.

I hope you enjoy my captures as much as I enjoyed feeling the sting of the icy air on my skin as I watched these amazing creatures.

  1. The birds are one of my favorite things throughout the year. The Cardinals have started reappearing. Saw 2 Bald Eagles soaring above my neighborhood over the weekend. Thank you for braving the weather to bring lovely images and more😌

  2. Oh, Dana!!! These photos are so beautiful and the captions are full of your wonderful sense of humor!! I laughed out loud. Thank you for sharing this. Remember that to keep yourself from sharing your gift is not only a loss for us but for yourself as well. 🙂 You would have missed putting that smile on my face. Happy winter, my friend!

    1. And that made me smile, Dave! Thank you, truly, for always encouraging me. I will remember this when faced with the temptation to hide away again. Right now I am debating whether I can withstand single digit temps to take some pictures of the sun kissing the snow!

      1. Braving single-digit temps sounds tough. But I just love these winter photos of yours, and the sun kissing the snow sounds so romantic! Sigh… Would it help if I begged? 😉 haha..
