We all complain about winter. It's cold. It's long. It gets dark too early and light too late. But there is real beauty in this season. I've been trying harder to notice the beauty and capture it with my camera.
I know I shared this one with you last week, but it's such a instant classic in my book.
This was taken in early December. I think it's the first time she ever really noticed snow.
We had a really bad ice storm in Indianapolis in 2010. School was cancelled for days, and I could literally walk across our completely frozen backyard without making a dent.
Charleston, SC, December 2010. (One of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen.) Why don't we have gorgeous doorways like this where I live?!
I know there isn't anything overtly "winter" about this photo, but it was winter. (I remember how cold my fingers were as I snapped pictures!) I took this photo at Middleton Place, outside of Charleston, SC. This path used to lead to the plantation's main home, but it was burned down during the Civil War. The stark, rusted iron and the story of the home makes this photo feel cold.
Awwww. This photo was snapped after we let the dogs out to play in the snow. We used to have two dogs, and I like to think that each print belongs to one of them.
I hope to continue to capture some beautiful winter shots this season! I found this Winter Photo Checklist by Akemi Photography helpful.
I feel like I reached a milestone this week...I reached 100 followers! This was very exciting for me (and Miss L who gave me a high 5 and "happy danced" with me)! Thank you again for reading and following House by Hoff!
Have a good weekend! :)
