WEEKEND THROUGH THE LENS 40


'But in every walk with nature one receives far more than he sees.' ~ John Muir



'Sea Smoke' over Cape Ann MA Harbor ~ just yesterday and today snow showers. This is when I wonder why I am not a 'snow bird'.




Haiku for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai ~ prompt ~ games




'Herself' posing and attentive to her surroundings. She has on her Winter coat ~ and has such great posture ~ I think she, perhaps, does Yoga when I am doing so myself. Ya think?
A bit 'blurry' for Sunday Stills challenge.





On a sunnier but cold day on Cape Ann MA ~ Brrr ~ Winter is here





'ArtMuse Dog' ~ A watercolor sketch ~ Have struggled for several years to capture her 'essence' in a sketch or painting ~ maybe I did it ~ It is not a great watercolor and needs work but was glad to get closer to portraying her essence.





'Ice' on storm door on Cape Ann MA ~ Winter is among us for next few months.


We are sharing with:

  2. Love that sea smoke - if anything, I'd go the other way - I'd love to move to somewhere (in Australia!) that has more of a winter than we do in Melbourne.

  4. I love your picture of Sea Smoke. I'd not heard of this phenomenon, so I had to look it up. I'm familiar with a similar happening on lakes, but this was new to me. Thanks for the education

  16. I like your point of view. Have I said that before? I'll probably repeat it again. :-) Your sketch does capture the essence of herself.

  18. I love the sea smoke and the ice. We had a snowstorm during the night and got maybe 6 inches of snow. I wish you a peaceful Sunday.

  19. That sea smoke shot is magnificent - if I headed south I'd miss those cold, snowy days. And of course ArtMuse Dog is cute as always. Your John Muir quote is perfect - I'll be posting photos from his woods tomorrow.
