One of the things I enjoy about blogging is visiting other sites and seeing ‘what they are up to’ as WordPress encourages us to do. Oftentimes, I find someone who shares a similar viewpoint of the world, and commenting back and forth, soon a kinship forms. I care about their work and they seem to care about mine. This is one of the unheralded benefits of blogging that I was happy to discover.
Yesterday I went out early with my camera and took photos for a couple of hours. Hoarfrost edged everything in sight, the sun was glittering off the snow and creating interesting shadows, the birds were singing and the temperatures were about to break freezing, hallelujah!
Many things I saw and recorded reminded me of one of my blogger friends, Sharon, of Sunearthsky. She lives in the Midwest and posts photographs that I find soothing in their simplicity and calming in their capture of quiet moments in time. We share a similar viewpoint of the world. As I walked along, I kept musing, “I must be channelling Sharon.” Checking my reader today, I saw her post is similar to the above photo I took (although hers is much better), so I decided to write a post about it. If you haven’t seen her stuff, check it out.
This photo is dedicated to Sharon. I call it ‘Winter Sparkles.’
Thanks, Sharon, for sharing your photographs for the rest of us to enjoy.
