Spring moves so quickly it is hard to believe that only a few weeks ago these little buds were the first exciting hint of green!
One of Judy’s challenges for our local art group was to paint her photo of the Peace River from near Dunvegan Bridge. The ice was just beginning to move and the grass to show after the snow melted away. Carolyn took up the challenge: this is the result.
Have you ever seen the perfect place in the perfect moment: the light, the composition, the components all perfect… and something changes before you snap the photo? Like, the stag just up and walks away before you can get your lens out? It’s a good time to be a painter as well as a photographer. A painter can put the deer right back in there.
This is the Labrador Forest, a secret, beautiful place in all seasons. Well, kinda soggy in spring, but still lovely. Wildlife is a bit rare though, so when a deer did move across the lane way of light, it was a photographer’s dream. Short lived. Then it became a watercolourist’s challenge.
Judy’s view across several tens of kilometers of Peace Country is always a new and wonderful sight. Here’s a foggy hour when the pink and blue form layers of atmosphere.
Found this in the yard while shovelling 🙂 Looks cozy.
This picture is a little confusing. It is taken looking straight down at a road. There are two footprints, made when the snow was deep and soft and then sculpted by wind erosion so that each print was made into a shoe with a fancy toe.
