Glenda-Love your black and white photos. You got some good shots! I thought the trees looked beautiful wrapped in ice--until the limbs started falling :)

PAT said...

Beautiful photos, Glenda!!

Thanks so much for the shout out!

I was standing in the powder room when I took the moon photos. I went into the kitchen on my way to throw in a load of laundry. It wasn't daylight yet. I looked up at the big window over the front door and saw the moon, getting ready to set, soon. I ran in and grabbed the camera and raised the window. It was chilly, but nothing like going outside. Although, I must admit, I was on the deck at the lake, barefoot, when I took some of the photos, last month.:-)

I have never seen a plastic patio chair look so pretty. Black and white photos are my favorites.

Well, at least you made good use of the snow and ice. Your black and white photos are so pretty. I need to try some black and white. I was sure sorry to hear that the groundhog saw his shadow. Stay warm. laurie

Nice shots but burr:) I enjoyed your post with the horse photos. Amazing that each city has different decorated animals the past few years. They sure are fun to see.
