january snapshot


1. I think the pond might be making an appearance in every month end collage. I'm getting quite partial to the tree as well. 2. A sweet little face. 3. A gorgeous sunrise. 4. Snow dusted crab apples. 5. Snow Bunny's mama wanted to wait for snowfall to take her Christmas pictures, so here's Christmas in January.

I found a really cute Christmas frame at Target and a plan immediately hatched in my head to create a photo that matched. I have an alarming number of plans that hatch in my head. Amazingly enough, the weather cooperated perfectly with high clouds as a light filter, and the mountains beautifully showcased in the background. I worked with the photo a little bit, first with my still favorite action, "seventies" from The Pioneer Woman's action set.


I love this one, the pink tint with the pink loving subject, but it's not what I was looking for in this particular scenario.

So, I tweaked the sky and blanket to match the colors in the frame.


With that, you have taken a little ride on the crazy train in my head. And while most of my ideas never make it across the finish line, this one did.

Kinda fun.

  11. That came out so sweet. What a great job! I bet mama went home so happy!
    And the pond definitely should be a monthly star. Even though I have a little pond envy!

  12. Your journey on the "crazy" train is the inspiration for the rest of us with our "little train that could" thoughts.

    I wish I had time to spend learning (or maybe I lack the vision to see it like you do).

  14. I absolutely love your blog! The pictures you take are so breathtaking, the colors couldn't be more vibrant. I reacently got a Canon Rebel for Cmas. It's a super nice camera but I feel inept at what to do with it other than point and shoot. I take a ton of photos and family and friends all enjoy them but I know there's more my camera could do. Do you mind telling me where you process your pics and if(how)you do any tweaking to them? I have heard of Picasa but feel overwhelmed at figuring it out. Thank you so much for your time!

  15. me being from the armpit of the U.S. (michigan) i'm pretty jealous that you live in a beautiful state like montana, where you can take piccy's of little snow bunnies with snow capped mountains in the distance. a very fortunate woman you are.
