Posted in Photography on January 31, 2011 by paintedmeadows

Rob and AidanThese faces are two of my three most favourite faces!!  My husband, Rob and my son, Aidan.  They were having a great time playing in the snow.  My daughter wasn’t feeling very well so she was resting in the house.  You will meet her soon though.

Dunvegan Bridge, AlbertaThis picture was taken yesterday of the Dunvegan Bridge in Alberta.  We were on our way to Grande Prairie to do some shopping.  I have always loved this bridge and valley.  The bridge goes across the beautiful Peace River.  I missed posting a picture yesterday because we were away so this is for yesterday.  ;0)

BarneyBarney is my Clydesdale/Belgian draft horse.  He is 17.2 h or 5″7″ tall at the shoulder and about 2200lbs.  I guess you know now why I picked him for the “large” theme.  He is a big love bug.  He is broke for riding and driving but mostly he is my pretty pony!!

Chickadee ArtisticThis is another picture of our friendly little Chickadee.  I played around with it, did and airbrush on it and then added some crosshatch texture in Elements.  I like the way it turned out.  So C is for chickadee!

peaceful hillThese 3 trees are up at the front of our property where we can see them from the house.  We have buried our beloved first Great dane here, a wonderful SPCA pooch, my special kitty, Mouse and 2 of our pet chickens so it has a lot of specialness associated with it.  To Thunder, Greta, Mouse, Hermione and Buffy, we will always remember you all!!

Barbed WireI found this barbed wire coiled on the side of the road.  We live in the middle of farm country and it just struck me.
