Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #107 – Winter

This week, Ann-Christine leads the winter theme.

January and part of February can be the coldest month of the year in Texas. Normally, Central Texas is between 60 and 50 F during the day and 30s at night, with occasional cold spells.

The photos below were taken in Austin in January, 2020. It was a sunny and warm weekend. Before noon, it reached to low 70 F.

Birding in February along the Gulf Coast:

We also like to visit Florida and Hawaii for a winter escape.

The Big Island of Hawaii:

Sarasota Beach, Florida:

The coldest weather I have experienced in recent years was our birding trip in Ohio in 2019. I had to put on two down Jackets borrowed from my friend; and, it was May.

We are looking forward to seeing your winter photos and stories. Be sure to visit Ann-Christine’s beautiful snow photos and make a link to her post.

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be starting August with a special Guest Host, Xenia at Tranature and Whippet Wisdom. 

Sandy’s Friendly Friday: SHADOWS

For this week’s Sandy invites us to share photos that feature shadows

Photographers suggest, “Create an image of the object with its shadow, or just show only the shadow, and cut off the real object.” First thing in the morning after sunrise, and when the sun is low in the sky.

Here is my entry:

The late afternoon light through the windows and shadows:

Tree shadows:

Shadows on a building:

This is one of my favorite images of shadows:
