Brick Horse Barn in HDR

My friend Steve truly is a master at HDR - both in getting the shot and processing beautiful images.   He graciously agreed to come give me some help this afternoon and I cannot begin to thank him enough! 

I posted this barn this past January when had snow.  I stopped by yesterday evening to get a HDR shot. 

For more great barns be sure to visit Tricia, and for midweek blues be sure to visit The Dusty Cellar.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Texture Thursday

These pretty flowers set against a blue wall made for the perfect photograph.   I then added Kim Klassen's Silent Night texture.    Be sure to join her Texture Lovin' List and receive a free texture, including examples of how she used it, each Friday.

Be sure to visit here for more Thursday textures.   Have a lovely day!

I found this macro in my archives.   It is the remainder of a tulip with just a single petal hanging on. 

Once again the colors are a little wonky because of my issue with blogger (even though I compensated with the saturation) but you get the idea.  I love the smoky-purplish color of the inside; I am not sure what you call the prong-like structures.  Anyone? 

Be sure to visit here for more great macros. 

TGIF!!   Have a beautiful and blessed weekend my friends!

Roots in HDR

I love the pattern and textures of the exposed roots of this tree.  I am surprised that the tree is still living considering the half of its roots are not covered.  Nature is a pretty amazing!

Be sure to check out Texture Thursday over at The Daily Wyatt

Have a happy and blessed Thursday!

This is my first decent waterfall photo and I am pretty pleased with the result.  There were a lot of people sitting on the rocks of these small falls so I had to crop and did not get the best angle, but the water turned out nicely. 

It sure would be nice to be sitting by those falls today on a blanket with a good book.....  ;)

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Little Red Schoolhouse

This is another HDR image.  I love this little red schoolhouse.  It reminds me of much simpler times.  *SIGH*

This sits out in front of our local musueum.  It was locked the morning I took this photo, but I want to go back and take some inside shots too. 

Have a blessed Tuesday!

Just Dandy...

After having been away for spring break this past week, it was sooo hard getting up early this morning.   My little guy is counting down the days until summer vacation!

This is a dandelion bloom.  I just love the little squiggly spirals in the middle.    It puzzles me to no end why my yellow photos lose some of their vibrance and have a more green/blue hue after being downloaded into blogger.  Does anyone have any ideas? 

Be sure to visit Lisa's Chaos for Macro Monday.   It is a fun way to start the week.

I hope you all have a great week!

After the rain....

This little pansy was drooped over from the all of the rain we've had the past few days.   I love these little droplets!

Be sure to visit Blogging from Bolivia for Macro Friday and Simply Life Photographs for Flowers on Saturday.

To my blogging friends in the Northeast - I sure hope the snow does not hang around long and that warm spring weather is headed your way! 

Have a great weekend!
