Nature

Winter stills

Before the snow covers everything around here, saturday morning I took a walk and took some pictures of a very different landscape to me.

I’m used to seeing this place all green and plush in August or completely covered with snow in December.

As I walked, flurries started to come down. There was nothing but the quiet of winter.

It’s a magical time of year.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, we sure did. I have lots of pictures to share with you.

Happy monday.

More from the ground view

Ever since I can remember I have enjoyed nature photography.

However, since coming to West Virginia, my passion for nature photography has grown.

There is so much nature around here, all sorts of trees, leaves, flowers, mushrooms, frogs, grasshoppers…

Taking pictures from the ground view has become my newest obsession.

It’s like looking at nature from a whole different perspective.

I took some of these the other day and some this morning, both under a cloudy sky.

these photos were not manipulated in any way

A scenic drive

How is everyone doing this fine monday?

I hope that you east coasters were all safe from Irene, all we got was some rain here in West Virginia.

Yesterday, Will, Lily and I took a scenic drive.

We stopped off in Marlington where we ate some deep fried southern food at the Greenbrier, we went to the Cranberry visitor’s center and checked out all the wild life that lives around here and we went on a nature walk.

It was a chill sunday.

 70 and perfect

fried!

Earth day

We couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the day yesterday. (you will see by ALL the pics)

The Fairchild Botanical Garden was free admission and that is exactly where we spent the whole day.

Surrounded by the most beautiful nature all around.

There were food trucks, art/craft tables for kids, a Japanese wishing tree, we rolled on the grass, smelled the flowers, hugged the trees and Lily even got to drum in her very first drum circle.

Happy Earth day mother Earth!
