Sunday Stills-the letter W

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2011 by TheEggGatherer

Today’s challenge is the letter W.  As my life goes, I’m stretching it a bit – so here goes.

We decided to take a drive yesterday morning and venture down some back roads near home.  This is the winding, wintry woad that we took to our destination. 

On the wintry, winding woad we stopped to snap some pictures of the wintry wapid waters on Paint Creek.  BTW, the first photo was taken through a very dirty truck windshield and this one was taken from inside the truck.  I did venture to roll down the window, but not for long.  The temperature had made it up to 18 at this time.  

This photo does not have anything to do with the letter W, except that this big eagle was sitting on Wood.  This was our WOW moment of the day.  We had driven all the way through the winding wintry woad, almost to our destination, when all of a sudden I looked up and there he was just sitting there waiting for me to snap his photo.  WOW!  This made my day!

Hope you all have a WOW day too!

Sunday Stills-the best of 2010

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything on my blog.  My one and only resolution for the new year was to do better on posting this year.  What better way to get started than with the first Sunday Stills of 2011. 

This is one of my favorite spots to photograph – Rocky Fork Dam.  As you can see, this was taken after a beautiful snowfall.

These are a couple of my very favorite shots of the blessing that arrived in late February of 2010.  My Mom’s first great-grandson.

The summer soon arrived and so did the butterflies, birds and flowers.

I loved this shot of a train sitting in the countryside in Fayette County. 

Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I had to include a couple of shots of my Christmas trees.  The first one is a simple close-up of the candlelites on our livingroom tree and the second is a tribute to our troops and my son who is deployed.  Keep’em flyin’ son! Semper Fi!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I’m looking forward to seeing all the great photos to come in 2011.
