BRIGHT JANUARY SKIES

Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons

I very recent became aware of this challenge thought several blogs I follow. I thought about it, then realized — I can do this. I live in the woods and I shoot pictures of my woods frequently, in every kind of weather. In fact, whenever something naturally interesting is going on, my woods is the first stop for me, photographically speaking. The fact that the woods what I see when I step out of my kitchen to my deck probably helps.

The point of this challenge is:

Find a location near your home, take somewhere between 5-20 photos and post them in a gallery in your blog. Continue to do this every month. If you live on the countryside, there’s probably plenty of locations to choose from nearby: a field with some trees, a beach, a mountain, or just a simple dirt road? It can be whatever. Just keep the project going throughout the year.

Try to shoot every month, so that in the end of the year, you’ll have a nice and diverse set of photos in your portfolio. The idea is to capture all the changes: the seasons, the weather, different times of the day, some night photography perhaps?

I’m a little late getting up to speed, but not very late. Just a few days. Next month I’ll be on time.  Here are my pictures for January, 2015.

It has been unusually warm for the past few days. Add unusually warm to unusually free or precipitation, not counting all that heavy rain during the Patriot-Colts game on Sunday.

I woke up this morning to brilliantly bright sunshine and dark blue skies. Perfect puffy white clouds were floating casually across the sky as if they didn’t have a thing to do but float.

Just a few days ago ...

Just a few days ago …

Oh, wait, they really don’t have anything to do but float. On second thought, I think I’d like to be one of those little puffy clouds.

  1. Interesting how different your woods look at different times. I like the next to last one with the shadows cutting across the ground.

    • Morning looks very different than later in the day because from where I stand, I’m facing east. And in the morning, there is often a mist, which is gone by 9 in the morning or thereabouts. And of course, it looks very different when there are leaves on trees vs. bare trees. It is the view I see all the time, so it has become a kind of natural clock of the seasons. It looks quite elegant right after a snow 🙂 We are supposedly getting about a foot over the weekend, but I’m hoping the forecast is wrong.
