096: a view from a different angle

 

I take a lot of pictures of Hudson Bay Mountain.  But I realized yesterday while I was walking in the evening, that I never take pictures of it from IN town.  So here’s one.  I think it’s a pretty good representation of how it looms over us.

 

(by the way, this is late, but my internet was down last night and most of this morning)

078: dog walking

I promised to walk a friend’s dog today (I do this pretty often, actually) but it was a gorgeous day out.  By the way, taking a photo of a dog who wants a treat is really hard!

Roofles!

And the pretty, pretty Hudson Bay Mountains (which is actually my photo for the day, somehow, they got switched when I uploaded them…)

(I really do love taking photos of this mountain)

My picture of the day looked a lot better in my mind than it did in execution, sadly, but I still think it’s a neat effect.  And I included a picture of my cat, because, well…

I’m always taking pictures of my cat.

071: stupid clouds

Today was really dreary and overcast.  With the fresh snowfall yesterday, it made it almost impossible to take scenic photos today.  Clouds kept rolling in and obscuring my view.

Day Zero Two Three: January Photo Challenge: FLAKES

Day 12 of the First Thirty-One over at Fourtuitous.com!  Today’s challenge was “Flakes”.

With two-plus feet of snow on the ground, today’s challenge wasn’t much of a challenge at all (which is wonderful, because I’ve really struggled with a couple of them – for the sake of keeping things interesting, and all that…)

My photo for the day is lovely Lorraine during our snowshoe hike today.  The day started wonderfully, and I dragged my sorry self out of bed and headed down to the farmer’s market to meet Linda (and get some fresh eggs!  our chickens haven’t been producing lately in the valley, so eggs are in short supply).  After lunch, we headed to Lorraine’s house and went snowshoeing up on the ridge overlooking town, and then down and across Col Lake.

It was a lovely way to spend the day.

Hey look, I’m actually in a picture! I asked Lorraine to take a photo to prove I was on the hike (instead of the one photographing, like usual)
