Making Winter Look Pretty

Here's what cheers me up. Many bloggers have done the same thing with spectacular results.

Take an ordinary view (in this case, a kind of blah looking winter backyard). Then look for moments or times, or scenes that change it to become something special.

It was morning last week and the sun was coming up. The above photo I took after I had snapped the following 2 pictures. As the sun touched on the brush in the water it was such a contrast in rich shades and shadows...

This is the neighbour's cove, under water. In summer those stumps with the rope sit on a strip of grass bordering the water. Moments after I took this picture a breeze started up and the mirror-effect was lost when the water rippled.

This last photo was taken in late afternoon, shortly before another storm blew through and changed the landscape to more water (the above photos). The frozen lake reflected the light blue sky and produced this pretty pastel landscape. The animal tracks add a nice, final touch.
